I am with Xylene on this. I see a lot of people try to fix the heat issue on these older laptops and it is pretty near impossible. I know it could have been designed better but you are also talking about a 7 year old computer. rolleyes.gif

I would also recommend redoing the TIM and making sure it is minimal and making sure the heat sink is seated properly.

<--- ACMT as well.
