I recently took my computer apart to clean after a spill I had. On my motherboard there are two black plastic films/sheets/covers (not sure what they do) stuck to the underside: one covering components on one corner (about a 1" x 3.5" piece) and one covering the underside of the processor (about 0.5" x 0.5").
The problem I have is that I accidentally set both sticky-side down on a towel and now there's lint all over them. I figured I can remove the stickiness with nail polish remover, but I don't know what this adhesive stuff is. They don't seem like important pieces, but I don't want to use the wrong adhesive and damage the mobo.
I've looked all over google and most people talk about appropriate glue or tape for heat sinks or holding important parts together. All I really need is a glue or tape that is motherboard safe just to hold these things to the board that doesn't chemically break down, leave goo on the components, stays sticky (like scotch tape), and doesn't make super strong bonds (just enough to stick it). And cheap would be awesome.
I've looked into normal scotch tape, but others say it could melt with high heat and leave a residue.
thermal tape too, but I got the vibe that it makes a pretty strong bond
rubber cement, but I read that over time it releases sulfuric acid. yikes!!
Hope I didn't write too much, just want to be thorough. Any advice would be awesome.
