Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

GPU heat sink standoffs came off

\015 A friend brought me a computer to repair. \302\240After inspection the DC jack on the motherboard had broken all but 1 or two of the solder points. \302\240But all solder pads were in tact with no damage to the mother board (yay!). Easily fixable.Then I noticed one of the screws was not holding down the passive heat sink (I'd assume for the GPU). \302\240Its the only other large heat sink on the board. \302\240Turns out the heatsink is screwed into two standoffs (one of which has broken loose). \302\240They appear to be non threaded and soldered on standoffs.\302\240I've tried to get them resoldered on there but they dont seem to want to stick, at least not with a normal iron. \302\240Does one need a surface mount hot air gun to heat the large area of solder to seat this? \302\240Any ideas on repairing this?\015

Answers :

To do this i use my aoyue hot air gun and, a lot of flux however; there is an eaiser way: get some two part epoxy glue mix it properly and, it should hold quite well or, use clear silicone automobile adhesive sealant by permatex (you can get it at an autoparts store) wait 24 hours before you handle the motherboard i prefer the permatex

I was adding a 512MB card to a Compaq Presario that has an ASUS K8S-LA (or Compaq motherboard: Salmon-GL6E) and discovered what looks like a heat sync loose inside the case. I can see where is was connected to a part of the board that is next to the large CPU Heat sink. What is this part and how does if effect the motherboard? How do I reattach it to the motherboard?


The ASUS K8S-LA main board has a variety of chips on it, however only the CPU is large enough to justify a dedicated heat sink. \015\012\015\012The most likely location that your rogue heat sink is came from is your video card's processor ... PC Desktops
