Thanks for taking the time to read and respond to my post.
I am opening my sony vaio to clean out the dust. When I opened it I saw a piece of grey substance, my first guess is that it was a thermal compound. I think it was left in at the factory by accident. I've scoured the internet for pics of inside a sony vaio and have not found this block of clay in any other laptop. I'm almost sure it was by mistake but would like some experienced help with this before I throw it out. It has so much dust it would be nearly impossible to remove every piece of dust and lint from it.
What is it?
The measurements of the hard clay/putty structure (thermal compound?) are 4.5 x 1 x 1 cm
