Hi, i've been asked to look at a pc for someone, who said its not booting. After taking it apart, it looks like they've got thermal paste between the pins in the CPU socket. Is this repairable, or dead now?Thanks for any help
click here may be worth a try, but some thermal pastes are fair insulators.
I've cleaned them in the past with copious alcohol and a toothbrush. Must be left to thoroughly dry afterward - a warm place helps (airing cupboard?)
Go to a Electronics Shop and ask foe Switch CleanerAutoSolve
Spray so it blows out other side it evaporates. You can be liberal with it
PS do not forget to have the lock lever up, when you do it
