:hello:  to everybody .
I had a Satellite 2805-S402 purchased in USA from a friend of mine with Win-ME and Bios v.1,4 I upgraded to Win-XP and Bios v.1,6 . Because
I had temperature problems I took it apart for a good clean up I notice
the thermal paste! there is not trace of it. I would like to ask to you :
if that is normal? and the min-max temperature of the CPU !in a hard-working
condition. So before I reassemble the Satellite I would like to know if
thi pc need a thermal paste.
Thank you and Ciao for now Claudio T.

Did it have gray foam pads instead? There is always some form of TIM it just comes in varying forms, thermal pads are more common when there is a large volume that they need to fill up.

Thanks for replay..........Yes it has a white foam pad glued to the cpu.
I must replace it or leave it as is?
Thank you
