My heatsink has come unstuck from the graphics chip in my laptop. Any idea what I stick it back with? (No chewing gum answers please!)

This is the stuff click here Once it's on though and set, it's on for good, any attempt to remove it will rip the chip from the board (been there, done that).

Or you could try Thermal Adhesive tape click here
perhaps a bit easier to use than the glue but also difficult to shift once in place.

Thank you lovely people. Have ordered the tape as it is cheaper. Well done!
