K8S-LA mobo heat sink fell off.

On my K8S-LA mobo the heat sink fell off of a chip right beside the CPU chip, sink and fan. Don't know what this chip is, but it overheated and shut down the CPU. I have stuck it back on, just using the remaining heat transferring glue, but it may not stay put. The sink has press-down handles on each side, but there is nothing on the board to latch it under; it seems to be held just by the glue.
What is this chip and how can I adhere the heat sink firmly?

That is the 'Northbridge' chip that provides the I/O interfacing for the main chip. The heat sink is normally held on with glue as you surmised, and should be re-done with a thermal conductive glue. The glue (a silver filled epoxy) is available from MCM electronics or from Mouser. Be sure to thoroughly clean the chip and heat sink before re-gluing.

    There are two small round wire hooks diagonally from the hooks on the heat sink. probably one or both of them have come loose and fallen off. I have a neighbor's computer I looked at that did the same thing. I tried powering the computer up and must have burnt the chip up doing it without the heat sink. if you look you might find one of the wire hooks on the mother board that is left or the holes where they were...

you need the right heat sink for the cpu that you are using for the board check on board for cpu plug in, then plug the fan in make sure that you have enought heatsink paste on cpu not to much just enought to do the job. if that dose not do it then the board is bad.

[Let's take a look at a Motherboard Diagram, that fits the technology of that Asus K8S-LA (Salmon) mobo,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply - Processor - for short.

As you can see the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

HIGH-speed graphics is AGP, and PCI Express.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot; or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

A) The PCI bus. (And Integrated Graphics)
B) IDE bus
C) SATA bus
D) USB bus
E) Ethernet bus
F) Audio (Sound)

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is a SiS 760.
The Southbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is a SiS 964.

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/chipsets_d/SiS/760+964/

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

Driver: A small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Device in question is the Southbridge chip.
Operating System is Win2K (?) ]

hi,
you may even find a new graphics card won't help. you are most likley suffering from an overheated northbridge. there not usually monitored for temp this is on the MB so, not good news as this will eventually go dead. and even re- greasing at this point won't help. however. by disassembling both the video card and northbridge heat sinks. you should find one of them pretty dried out.

hope this helps

Cpu fan not working


If the CPU fan is actually spinning (make sure you're looking at the right one - it should be the fan mounted directly onto a big circular heat sink near the top of your motherboard), then it sounds like your mobo has a faulty sensor. If it's still under warranty, get it changed for a new one.

Intel DG965RY CPU Overheating


Check the clamp of the cooling fan. If the clamp is not engaged, heat sink didn't take the heat away from the micro processor causing CPU over heating.

Pentium D problem


Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!

How to remove the cpu from mobo.


Was the heatsink screwed into the mobo or was it clipped to the plastic? If it was screwed on the processor is soldered to the mobo and cannot be removed. If its a ZIF socket then more than likely the lever has broken off and the socket is pretty useless now, time for a new mobo.
