how to fix scratch on processor

I had an unexpected accidental recently. I just replaced my laptop ram and I was curious with my cpu, I turned the screw and take the processor and see how it looks like, then I put it again. Unfortunately I make a line scratch on the processor with my screwdriver. Well, now that scratch make changes to my laptop, the fan sounds so loudly, and my games feel laggy like never before. my cpu is intel p6100 with integrated graphic, is there any way to fix this?

    If you removed the heatsink from the CPU, you'll need to clean it and apply new thermal paste.
  2. Small scratches are OK - the paste will fill them. Bigger ones need to be sanded smooth.

    On a laptop CPU, there is no IHS. Thermal paste is applied directly to the die. A scratch on that could be bad news. A scratch elsewhere... depends on the depth.
  5. Yep - Pics please!
