This is a Compaq Presario CQ60-215Dx laptop which was badly overheating. I repasted the Athlon processor but am still getting 90c CPU temp readings with CoreTemp.
I noticed there were two other chips having their heat dissipated by heat sink, one an Nvidia display chip and not sure about the other. But these were using a foam pad on heat sink and not paste. The pads were in good enough condition I left them although thought about using paste. I don't think they're responsible for high temps because these are dual core CPU readings.
Any suggestions of what to look at. The CPU fan is blowing very hot air.
