Seems I linked the wrong video. There was formerly one which stressed using small amount of paste but it seems to have disappeared or wasn't Acer.

I don't bookmark these because there are too many videos for too many brands. But almost every operation you can do now has an Youtube vid searchable via Google.

But you got other good advice to use the paste sparingly.

Good news here, too. Compaq laptop waiting at my friend's in Boston which was shutting down due to overheating took 8 hours to disassemble (twice) to repaste the processor, but I'm typing this on it now.

There are some very flimsy plastic clamps the size and heft of a fingernail clipping that fold down to hold the keyboard and touchpad ribbons in place. The one for the touchpad separated from the mobo so that the ribbon cannot be clamped down onto the connectors. Anyone know how to replace this as it appears to be integrated in mobo and the clamp won't reattach. Until then we're using a mouse.

It was a learning experience. I learned I'll never do another one.

Hey all, I'm wanting to clean out all my internal fans. My system is a Dell Dimension 9200. To clean out all the fans I have to remove the heatsink to get to them (well done Dell!). I'm going to re-apply some new thermal paste to the CPU. Just wondering if anyone had any advice on which to...

Thermal Paste
After reading some good reports on Shin Etsu thermal paste, I bought some, but am having a lot of problems with getting it to spread properly. It tends to clump together, and when forcing it out, it leaves such a thin covering that the lettering on the CPU is still plainly visible. I'm about to...

Thermal paste
Hey guys, So I was hoping to get some clarification (as well as personal opinions) on thermal paste application. I have heard many different ways of applying thermal paste, and I am guessing they all work. The real question is, how MUCH? I just have a feeling I put on TOO much on my new...

Used way too much thermal paste
This isn't that important, all it is is that I'm worried. It was my first time round putting thermal paste onto a cpu, and i sort of used an entire 3.5g syringe of arctic silver 5 underneath a zalman9700. Yes some did come over the sides, wiped it off, I'm guessing there is a layer inbetween...
