Acer Aspire 5003 Thermal Module

I have a replacement Acer laptop thermal module assembly (integral fan+heat pipe+CPU heat sink) for the subject laptop. The heat sink surface that will contact the CPU already has what appears to be a black plastic mylar film attached tothe metal plate with a rectangular silver pad inlay in its center. Is this to be used with or without heat sink compound to assure intimate thermal contact with the CPU surface?

Greetings,
I believe that the 'silver pad' you are talking about is likely a thermal pad which creates intimate thermal contact in the same manner as a thermal compound. As long as the pad has not deteriorated then you can reuse it. If that helped please rate me well.

Heats up quickly and fan is very loud


When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I have a dell Dimension 8400. The cooling fan


Hi:
Your cpu might be getting too hot...
If you have not done so, it would be a good idea to get some quality thermal compound,such as Arctic Silver, and carefully remove your heatsink/fan, clean the surface of your cpu, and the bottom of the heat sink, and re apply an even, thin coat of thermal paste. Reattach the heatsink/fan assembly, and reboot the computer. On start up, enter the BIOS and check the hardware monitor to see what the cpu temp is..Hopefully you will have it running cooler than it was.

Computor shuts down. screen goes to black. turn back on and get siren sound and screen says shut down due to thermal event. hit F4 to resume. had same problem a couple years ago and they replaced fan


try applying new cooling pest between cpu heatsink and cpu. Heat from cpu surface should be quickly transferred to heat sink. Either coolent problem or heatsink doesnot properly fit on cpu. But be carefull, you need an 'EXPERT' to do this, or you end up damaging everything.

Emachine heating issues


Hi rebecca_fran,
Well the system is shutting down for a reason but before you run off & buy a new CPU fan I want you to try something.
Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case & ground your self by simply touching any bare metal. (The bottom of the case will do).
Please remove the memory currently in your system. If you have never done this before please check within the manual for your eMachine. (There should be a section on how to install memory).
You can also click on this uTube link, it’s a bit long but you can skip through the video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsXNT6fnHmM&feature=related
If you have some canned air blow out the memory slots.
(Do not place your fingers on the memory contacts at any time).
Re-seat the memory, firmly but gently. Leave the case opened & plug in the power cord. Turn on the PC. See if the fan runs & the system doe’s not shut down. If it still does replace the CPU fan.

Your PC uses an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ / 2.3 GHz CPU.
Here is a replacement AMD CPU fan & assembly.
http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/std/sku=dual_core_cpu_fan.html

The CPU will come with thermal tap on its underside. (No need to buy thermal grease).
(Make sure you remove the old thermal grease from the top of the CPU). Use a clean rag with a little alcohol on it. (Not dripping). Allow time for drying. Do not scratch the CPU surface.

Good luck rebecca_fran!
Mike
