I would say that you can probably use whatever you want. But if it tells you to use silicone grease, the you probably should so you don't void the warranty.

Clean heat sink on toshiba satellite


Turn off the Satellite laptop and flip it over so you can see the bottom. Push the battery latch towards the outside of the laptop and remove the battery.


Locate the heat sink panel, which will be next to, or including, the two fans that you can see. Unscrew the two to three screws that are holding that panel down, and remove them.


A few models of Satellite laptops use Torx sized-8 screws instead of Phillips.

Unplug the cables running from the two fans to the control board.


You can see the cables coming up from under the fans.

Then unscrew the two to three screws on the fans, and pull up to remove the fan unit from the laptop.


If your Satellite heat sink panel does not uncover the fans as well as the heat sink, ignore this step.

Remove the four screws that surround the heat sink.

Then move the heat sink back and forth to disconnect it from the CPU.


If your laptop shuts down by itself without any reason, check the heat sink first.

Overheating is a very common problem among Toshiba laptops.


Lift up on the heat sink to remove it from the unit.

If the CPU got caught on the heat sink and comes off as well, grasp it by the edges and peel it off the heat sink.


Turn the screw on the side of the CPU socket to unlock it, then place the CPU back in its socket and lock it again.


Blow compressed air into the heat sink and the fans until the dust is removed.

Then blow the air onto the control board to remove loose dust from there as well.


Place some Isopropyl alcohol onto your cloth, or a small brush, and clean the processor and the control board area around the processor.


You will also want to wipe up the thermal grease that is on these components. Make a note of the area where you removed the thermal paste.


Reapply a layer of thermal grease in the areas where you removed it.

The lid of the thermal grease container will have an applicator.

Just spread the grease over the components.

Replace the heat sink, then the fans and finally the heat sink panel cover.


hope this helps

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can kill your computer

ESD can permanently damage your laptop. Always ware ESD wrist strap when you work with internal computer components.

How notebook screws are marked


In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized.


Removing Memory Modules


Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot with your fingers.


Carefully spread latches on both sides of the memory slot with your fingers.


Carefully pull the memory module from the slot by the edges.


Removing Wireless Card

There are two antenna wires connected to the wireless card.
White wire connects to the main connector on the card.
Black wire connects to the auxiliary connector on the card.

To disconnect the antenna wire from the wireless card grasp the connector with your fingers and unsnap it from the card.

Carefully spread latches on both sides of the wireless card slot, just enough to release the card.


The wireless card will pop up at 30 degrees angle.

Pull the wireless card from the slot by the edges.


Disconnecting Keyboard


Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector on the motherboard, you'll have to open up the connector.

Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector on the motherboard, you'll have to open up the connector.

After the connector is unlocked you can pull the cable. Be very careful with the connector. If you accidentally damage the connector, you'll have to replace the motherboard.

Removing Modem Card

The connector is located under the modem and you cannot see it until the modem is remove. After the modem is removed, disconnect the cable (on the left side).

\Usually the modem is secured to the motherboard by two screws. Remove them.

To disconnect the modem from the motherboard lift it up.


CPU came out attached to heatsink
In some cases, when you remove the heat sink, the CPU might get out attached to the heat sink. DO NOT install it back into the socket like that, separate the CPU from the heat sink first.


CPU came out attached to the heat sink because thermal paste dried out and glued the processor.

Insert a flathead screwdriver between the CPU and the heat sink surface. Carefully rotate the screwdriver until the CPU separates from the heat sink.

\Lift up the CPU and install it back into the socket on the motherboard. Now you can safely remove old thermal paste and apply a new layer of paste.


Removing and Installing CPU


The CPU is locked in the socket. Before you can remove the CPU, you'll have to unlock the socket. Use a flathead screwdriver and turn the socket screw to "Open" position.


Lift up the CPU by the edges. Be careful, there are a lot of fragile pins on the opposite side of the CPU. You should be able to install the CPU back into the socket without any force.

There is only one correct way to install the processor into the socket. Both CPU and socket are keyed. When you are installing the CPU, make sure to match pins on the processor with holes on the socket.

Before applying thermal grease on the CPU, clean the surface with alcohol.

After the CPU surface is cleaned, apply a small drop of thermal grease.

Spread thermal grease evenly and install the heat sink.


ATTENTION! If you forget to lock the CPU in the socket, the laptop will not boot. If you install the heat sink without applying thermal grease, the CPU will overheat.

My toshiba satellite pro 6100 will not turn on. The battery light and power light turns green but it will not turn on.


The problem could be your display. Use the VGA port on the side of your laptop to connect it to a computer monitor, this will let you know if your system is posting or not. (If you see the Boot Screen it is posting).

Thermal Paste


Hi,

From the word itself it is a thermal paste that can hold the CPU and iot helps out to prevent the heat coming from the processor, when the cpu fan operate/spin it also that helps that processor to cool down.

You may try a toothpaste as a substitute for it you will need a "white base toothpaste" just put only a small amount into it.

Let me know for any clarification

Open it u, blow it out really well with a can of compressed air.

Also I would reapply some thermal grease between the cpu and fan, like arctic silver 5. You should clean the old grease beforehand.

Upgrade CPU In my SAMBA SM-1845


Hi, as long as both chips are slot 478 it should work fine, you wont need to change any bios or jumpers, just open up the computer, remove the heatsink, lift the lever and remove the CPU.
Insert new processor.
you will need thermal grease at this point, you need to apply a little amount onto the cpu, and make sure the old thermal paste is removed from the heatsink and then refit the heatsink & fan.
other option is fit the new cpu and purchase a new heatsink & fan, they usually come with the thermal grease, a new heatsink will cost about £10 or themal grease by itself will cost about 2-3 pounds.
just make sure you have new thermal paste before you remove the heatsink as the processor will get damaged otherwise..

Hope this helps
