Having problems with your Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 Notebook ?

Thermal cooling assembly replacement or Thermal paste

\015 I'm trying to fix a bad DC Jack of my Dell Inspiron 4150 and have gone through several online sites on how to repair it. One site says that I should replace the Thermal cooling assembly when I open the laptop. I'm a bit confused since I only needed to fix the DC jack. \015\012\015\012Do I have to replace the thermal cooling assembly or do I just need to replace the thermal grease as advised by another site that I came across?\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for your help.\015\012\015\012Jun\015

Answers :

Frankly there is seldom a reason to replace either. The thermal grease is not damaged by removing the assembly and, as long as there is still plenty, you can just reassemble it. There is absolutely no reason to replace the assembly.

Startup issues I recently ordered a new processor cooling assembly in order to replace the two fans.

It did get as far as the HD spinning and it acted as though it was working for about 10 to 20 seconds and then it shut
