    Re the Heat -- The G6's were known to have several heat related problems. One common was all Graphics go AWOL - Caused by the internal Graphics literally melting / losing the Connections.

    If you want to put on New Paste - Its not a quick job, its a complete Teardown of the base, removal of motherboard as the CPU in under the board as its constructed.

    Heres How https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3b7eYFgEwg4

    New paste at approx. 4.35 in video

    Thanks, wainuitech for the links. May do it later when I am free. It's a complete tear down, no doubt about it!

    From the vidio, you reckon that they are applying too much of the thermal paste, esp the first link? Aren't we supposed to apply only a very thin layer of the paste?

    Usually with I put on a Blob and spread it out carefully with a Old Card or some applicators have one with them.

    Interesting Video shows different ways. I use the Spread as I mentioned. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofyNgJyhGuc

    This Video actually shows how the Paste Spreads when the cooler is reattached https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn2ln04dquM

    If you ever look at the factory amounts pre loaded on Heat Sinks it always overflows slightly past the edges once its been clamped down, you dont want to little or to much..

    Thanks.

    I disassembled it, have a good clean up and reapplied the thermal paste. put all the bits and pieces back. Booted up and it works ! hahaha. Temperature wise, little improvement!

    Don't laugh at me, I broke a few plastic clips. otherwise, a 'good' job done. hahaha

    Did you brush all the dust out of the fan fins and the heatsink?

    Clean the channel after the fan and heatsink that the air goes out to the vent and the world.

    Good work taking it to pieces then getting it back together working again.

    For a brush use a thin child's paint brush and take your time.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    It happens, depending on the laptop, some get very brittle while others are not really designed top come apart easily. a Handy (universal) "tool" is an old Credit or other type of plastic card.
