last i touched somthing in the laptop and it made my finger feel odd, is there any chemicals i should worry about in the laptop?
or is it my paranoia
thanks for the help,
You pretty much want to do what you would normally do for a desktop. The difference is that laptops are a real pain to work on and usually you have to tear the whole thing apart to get tio the CPU. Once you tear down the computer and get to the CPU. Take a non lint cloth (coffee filters work great) and rubbing alcohol and clean the CPU until there is no more junk showing on the cloth. Then apply a very small dot of thermal paste to the CPU and screw heatsink back on. You only need to apply thermal paste where there is thermal paste already pre-applied. Leave the green pads where they are.
