    Sorry, I forgot you went to tech school and have an A+ guy to advise you.

    Have you tried taking the fan/heatsink assembly and soaking it in kerosene (paraffin as we call it over here) or JP4 if you are a Top Gun Jock

    It might flush some cobwebs out of the fan(s)................... if you swish it around and leave it overnight.

    Let it dry naturally for a day or two............... an old watchmaker's trick I picked up years ago

    Is it a standard type fan/HS assembly? if it is, then a replacement unit would be easier.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Hmmmmm,

    "Terribly sorry but I could only send $2500, please send the computer and the difference to: Abdul KoKopop, Lagos, Nigeria"

    If it looks too good to be true............ IT IS!!!!

    Never assume that people are more stupid than yourself, they generally are not?

    Hello Mate,i will like to buy your item for my friend son as a birthday gift,who i promise a gift when chatting online last night,So I will like to offer you $1900USD
    Look at the grammar & syntax?

    Take care young friend, the net is a wild place
