I have a toshiba satellite A205-S5853. Lately the computer has started acting strange. It just shuts down by itself at random times. I thought it may be overheating so I opened up the laptop, cleaned the vents and fan, and reapplied the thermal paste. Two questions here, generally there are two things under the copper heat sink, do I need to apply thermal paste on both of them or only one and if so which one. Second question, one of the chip has a thermal pad or something between it and the heatsink. Should I replace this also with thermal paste
I did wonder that if the computer was over heating, then after it shut itself off, how was I able to turn right back on?
