Overheating - Clamp
I apologize in advance for not being able to give specific details as to the parts involved in this problem. Hopefully my descriptions will be enough.
My computer appears to be overheating. It shuts off on a whim when it's working hard. It will run indefinitely when doing mundane tasks like just running a browser, but games for instance will cause it to just shut down (no warning, just powers off).
I have a heat sink / fan combo sitting on top of the chip. There is a square, plastic frame that sits on the outside of the chip, and it has 4 posts with "hooks" on top where the clamps attach to hold the heat sink firm against the chip.
One of those hooks broke during a move, so only one clamp can be affixed. The other side of the heat sink / fan is not being held firm to the chip.
It's just a plastic hook, but obviously the plastic frame with the posts is firmly attached to the board, so I don't know how to replace it, and I can't come up with an alternative solution to hold the heat sink / fan combo in place. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
