Heatsink falling off

  Gosford 22:51 25 Feb 2007

On my laptop there is a small heatsink on one of the chips on the motherboard that has fallen off a couple of times and starts rattling around inside the computer.

There is some glue on the heatsink that still fells quite sticky, but I would like to put some new glue on it to stop it falling off again.

Can anyone recommend waht type of glue I should use?

It's probably stuck on with double sided adhesive thermal tape, which is near impossible to get in the UK, you could try click here but do clean the surfaces first.
