Nor I but I have printed out the disassembly instructions and the
special part on cleaning and prepping the heat sink. About 10 pages
of useful information and ads for a shop in Augusta.
Oh and in case you wondered this notebook is a Compaq Presario
CQ60-215DX with an AMD Athlon X2 and it is about 3 years old now.
It can get hot enough to hurt the hard drive and the motherboard. Then
I would have real problems.
Now it is a bit cooler so maybe I can run it if I leave it alone
for a while.
