The only way to get that clip is on a new heatsink. Yes, you'll need to buy a new one. The link provided may help;

These do vary depending on the Socket. (754/939/940/AM2). Check your manual for your socket type.

Hope you find this helpful!
Cheers

If you are innovative enough one can improvise by simply hold the fan to the heat sink with copper wire in case only one bracket is broken. The fan only requires to be on the heat sink to remove heat from the processor. Otherwise the fan & heat sink as one sealed unit only. Else try out the junk yard and see if you can hunt for one where PC's are dumped !

However if you want your PC to last for 2-3 yrs more, trouble-free, then my recommendation would be to replace the fan+heat sink unit, 'cos if the heat conducting paste between the processor & heat sink, if disturbed cannot be replaced to its original capacity & the processor will overheat and the PC will auto shut down repeatedly, till the processor is damaged permanently! .............................sodeep

The passenger side window, something broke down in the door, the motor for the power windows still works, but there is nothing holding the window up? What broke? Is it a do it yourself job to fix it?


Its the window regulator thats broke. Most are made with plastic brackets and cable. The plastic breaks and the cable goes nuts then nothing is holding the window. You need to get a regulator, if you can take the door panel off you should be able to handle installing the window regulator.

Front seat bracket underneath


You can buy the brackets or seat frame seperatly.
The thing is that you have to take the seat out and disassemble the whole thing to replace the bracket.

The cpu heatsink clip has come apart, would like to know how to fix. the model is hp pavilion 734.uk

That's what usually breaks if you have a 478 pin cpu. Should be available in any computer shop. If the actual metal bracket on the heatsink broke you will have to buy a new fan/heatsink. Both solutions are cheap.
