Lenovo laptop running hot

I want to know if my 6 yr old lenovo laptop thermal pad can be replaced with new thermal paste. Its been running hot recently and i think its due to the heatsink and paste dried up or something.

SLS ppl can help to replace the thermal paste?

Yes. At second floor. There are few shops doing this. Cost about $30.

This can easily be performed by yourself. You have already opened up the base, so its a matter of removing the 6 screws holding down the heatpipe to your CPU and GPU, and the cooler should be free to remove.

Then you should also try to clean the fans. They look dusty, and not unexpected after 6 years of usage.

Not as easy. Need rubbing alcohol to wipe the previous paste away. Then buy thermal paste and apply it.

It is not hard. But if you are not comfortable with it, better get someone else to do it for you. Considering it cost $30, that's not too bad.

I don't get it. How does wiping old thermal compound and repasting make it not as easy? You don't need alcohol to remove dried thermal compound.

It is down to your confidence level. I am just letting you know that it is a simple process, though you will need to spend money to buy thermal compound.

stock thermal paste tends to be low quality.

I used Thermal Grizzly for my XPS and it made a big diff. It never goes above 85 even when I OC the GPU.
