So I watched a whole bunch of videos last night on cleaning laptops and some people even mentioned about washing the heat sink with soap(is this true?).
I have done this before but I got it heated up again after about two months of using it and when I sent it to someone else for 10$ it lasted more longer.
So correct me if I'm wrong all I need is to:
Cleaning Heatsink with Compressed Air
Don't let the fan turn(by using a tooth pick?) when using the Compressed Air
Replace Thermal Paste
Use brush to get some of the residue stuck at heatsink
Hold the compressed air upright
Anything else I'm missing? How do you remove old thermal paste that have hardened? I've seen people using screwdrivers after applying thermal paste remover/isopropyl alcohol is it advisable?
