I like hearing these stories as well and hope to be doing this for a lonnnngggg time.. This will eventually reap havok and be the downfall of the board. It will crack when twisted or stressed. I removed the heat sink and removed the MB. Hi, Anybody can tell me how I can reach the motherboard of this laptop, in order to fix the CPU heat-sink problem as described, for example, by Mr. I believe your processor overheats, you have to open up your laptop with a screw driver, and check if your cooler didnot cliped off the mother board, If it did , you have to take out the motherboard and to faster the broken attachments of the cooler from the outside, fortunately, you can use the same kind of screws, BUt dont forget to clean up the processor and apply thermopaste, it helps for cooling down. Read your post and was able to get the machine working again by securing the pem nuts 3 and 4 were detached from Motherboard and applying some heat sync grease from Radio Shack.

My YGR was locking up alot and running hot and the fan ran pretty much all the time. Dont try to over-run the capabilities of the device’s like gaming with a max integrated video memory of 32 meg’s and running a game that requires this just to operate.
Gateway 600ygr Problems
I have been an electronic technician for many years and I beleive that I can do as good or better of a job than they could.
I’ve noticed that the fan is kicking on alot more and staying on alot longer than it used too. I have a couple year old Gateway ygr 1. Vudeo to have a large work table so you can put the screws, etc. Reattached the heatsink and reinstalled everything Cleaned the top of the cpu also denatured alcohol.
Promote cracked software, or other illegal content Offensive: They probably would have resoldered or replaced the MB with a used one that would have exhibited the same problem later. Pay close attention to cable routing, etc. Sorry but basic mechanics appear to be in play here.
Everything has to come apart to effect this repair.

Keep em cool and if it aint broke? A good tech can clean this up in under an hour.
CNET’s Forum on laptops is the best source for finding help, troubleshooting, and getting buying advice from a community agteway experts. These laptops have a warranty period and unless refrigerators and such are designed with finite lifespans.
Unit still working as designed. It would be fine except for the fact the heat from the CPU heatsink and related areas heat the joints up and the result is expansion of the solder as it has a lower melting point than the slugs that it holds. Proffitt Forum moderator January 13, If more people would do a simple weekly maintenance on the laptops.
Can someone please explain what material i need to use in order to secure these nuts back onto the board?
Basically it expands and contracts at a much lower temp causing the joints to crack and fail. Repair is holding vidso just fine. Not too complex is it?
