Is there any solution to this or am I dealing with a lost cause? CNET’s Forum on laptops is the best source for finding help, troubleshooting, and getting buying advice from a community of experts. Cleaned the top of the cpu also denatured alcohol. I keep all the latest and greatest of just about everything and have learned it is better to uninstall old versions and then install the updates. Disassembled unit and found the cpu heat sink was not completely flat against the cpu.

Gateway YGR 15in. Notebook/Laptop – Customized | eBay
My YGR was locking up alot and running hot and the fan ran pretty much all the time. Reattached the heatsink and reinstalled everything Thanks for the help Kenzbo. Dont try to over-run the capabilities of the device’s like gaming with a max integrated video memory of 32 meg’s and running a game that requires this just to operate. The pem nuts protrude too far past the board so a screw won’t hold them securely, thus the slight grinding. I believe your processor overheats, you have to open up your laptop with a screw driver, and check if your cooler didnot cliped off the mother board, If it didyou have to take out the motherboard and to faster the broken attachments of the cooler from the outside, fortunately, you can use the same kind of screws, BUt dont forget to clean up the processor and apply thermopaste, it helps for cooling down.
I like hearing these stories as well and hope to be doing this for a lonnnngggg time. Fans move air through a system.
Gateway 600ygr Problems
Track this discussion and email me when there are updates. A good tech can clean this up in under an hour. Promote cracked software, or other illegal content Offensive: I have a couple year old Gateway ygr 1. Not too complex is it? They probably would have resoldered or replaced the MB with a used one that would have exhibited the same problem later. Sadly I see no web pages explaining basic mechanics of how to tighten loose nuts.
Sorry but basic mechanics appear to be in play here. Basically it expands and contracts at a much lower temp causing the joints to crack and fail.

Everything has to come apart to effect this repair. It will crack when twisted or stressed. My warranty was still good until june however I refuse to send my life blood away for many, many weeks while they attempt a repair. You are reporting the following post: Unit still working as designed. I removed the heat sink and removed the MB. You can however resolder these But it vvideo a good hot iron to heat the hold downs enough ivdeo actually flow the solder correctly.
Cleaned the heat viideo and applied silver heat sink grease.
Can’t remember the name but it is one the MB. Did it exceed the warranty period? That’s how I did it and you will see what I mean when you get inside.
