Answers :

If one of the components on the motherboard has melted, I hope you have warranty to get it repaired.

won't be cheap outside of warranty, probably the motherboard will need to be replaced.
1. buy some transfer compound
\015\0122. replace the fan and heatsink over the compud do not spread compound with finger.
\015\0123. Reset the unit by takeing out the battery and unplugging it from AC source then after a few min. plug everything back in.
\015\0124. if that does not work you may have a overheated cpu and this would need to be repaired at this point seeing that the compd was melted off.
