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.

If it gets hot, fan will speed up. If it's getting hot, possibly the silicone grease between the heat sink and the CPU is dried up, or else you have poor contact. (Loose snap-down hardware)
Fix it soon, or Bye bye CPU.

THERMAL PASTE helps


Maybe you have encountered problems like your computer freezes suddenly and you try to find solutions to it by troubleshooting your hardware or software installed. And after troubleshooting for hours and you are 100% sure that all your hardware and software are working just fine.

But you have never tried to look or never guess that between the Heat Sink or CPU has a solution that is put between them to be able to cool the processors/components. It is called Thermal Paste (other names: thermal grease, heat sink paste and etc.).

Thermal Paste helps the cooling off of components and draws heat away from heat sink/cpu. It is really a big help and can increase efficiency in your computer systems.

If you haven't try or see Thermal paste in your computer, try opening your system it is found between your heat sink and cpu, the substance that is applied between them.

It solves computer freezes.

I have Toshiba f30, its fans run slowly than normal. I remove, check, clean and replace thermal past them but nothing changing. Before when temprature increase, fans also increase their speeds but now they...


Ah! I posted an answer on your other question but I didn't get it right! Now it makes more sense. You cleaned up all and changed thermal paste on cpu. Might be a problem with a fan itself. Only thing that pops in my mind might be a problem with bearings, but if fan is fine i'm afraid thermistor on motherboad is fried.

Help, cpu over heating ,fan and heat sink have been cleand.


The only thing that you did not mention was fresh conductive thermal grease compound, did you take the heat sink off the processor ic and remove the old thermal compound? if you have not done this you will need to complete the repairs and apply fresh conductive thermal compound this will dissipate up to 50% of the heat and should solve your problem. If this fails you need to make sure the processor cooling fan is running properly, or the processor ic may need to be changed because of thermal runner way.

System is saying that CPU fan has failed and shuts system down. I just replaced the fan and heat sync it is still saying this.


Thermal paste is applied between the heatsink and the cpu heat spreader or die. If you removed the heatsink to replace the fan you should have applied new thermal paste to the cpu or you may have burned it up. Try clearing the bios like dageezer said. Look for a jumper pin near the onboard battery to clear the cmos.

Thermal Event


This is likely one of the following:

1) the thermal paste under the fan is dried up and needs to be redone
2) The case needs to be blown out of accumulated dust
3) the motherboard has an electrical problem (old capacitors failing etc.)

It could be all 3 issues.

If you are somewhat skilled the first 2 are easy.

The last one can be fixed in many cases

Marj,
Even though you said no pins were bent, my guess is that one of the pins either bent or broke off completely.

I am assuming that since you were inside cleaning, the computer is out of warranty.

Try examining the CPU (thingy under the fan) for any bent pins or broken pins. The alignment back into the mother board is crucial. Usually there is one corner with no pin or the corner is squared off to indicate the positioning of the chip in the pin holes.

Reseat the CPU and make sure it goes all the way down flush to the motherboard.

Usually there is a lever beside the CPU that you can lift that makes it easy to install or remove the CPU. It is called a Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) lever.

Personally, I'd recommend a professional or very knowledgeable and experienced friend help you reseat the CPU. Otherwise, you will need to replace it and they are not cheap.

However, if the CPU is damaged beyond repair, you might find a good USED one online at a decent price.

Toshiba laptop shuts down on its own


Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

My comuter won't start up properly. It stays blank right before the log in screen at start up. It shuts down automatically when I play certain video games.


Ok this could be a CPU Issue, after a while the thermo paste on the heatsink which is on the CPU under the fan the paste will dry out and when it does the cpu once starts working under load due to the games being played will shut down to protect itself and the board.

What you need to do or get someone to do it for you take out the Heatsink reapply thermo paste on top of the CPU (by the way thats what I call it) may be known in your region as Thermal grease (also called thermal compound, heat paste, heat transfer compound, thermal paste, or heat sink compound. If you need more help let me know
