how much does the service center charge for cleaning up laptop?
i tried opening up mine but couldn't get 2 screws out, they are way too tight.
HP charges 1400 just for opening the laptop.

How much it will cost to buy the paste?
And what about heatsink? Cleaning it with spirit won't damage it?
...The instruction video is good but when the hardest part comes, all he shows is PICTURES. Im really scared ill destroy the keyboard...Pushing it like crazy, not coming out.
depends what component, and yes 98 is high for any component.
So- what did you use to scrape it off?..
Problem faced: I think a fan stopped working or something, I just hear whirring and there's extreme heating under normal load, the laptop just "thermal shutdown"s... It happens so often that I've gotten used to it. Which is probably a bad thing . Need to solve the problem asap, so please help me out with the final piece of information I need. How do I scrape out the existing dried paste before I apply the new one?

The Arcticlean kit seems to cost 1K+ on ebay..
Spirit / Acetone (nail polish remover) / Deo are good things to spray to remove the dried up paste?
Awesome.The best is 70% w/w isopropyl alcohol sold for 70Rs in local Pharmacies. 90% w/w isopropyl alcohol is better but rarer to find. 70% is good for everything except IC Diamond thermal paste.
but, what would you choose between:
Deepcool Z5 Tharmal Paste @ 400 INR
Noctua NT-H1 @ 620 INR
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G @ 550 INR
Considering this is for N5110 which is doing bl00dy 60 at casual work & 90~autoshutdown @ gaming.
I don't intend to open the laptop again - for as long as possible!
Would you like to share a link (to order in india) online? - couldn't find it on fk/sd/amazon/regulars.For laptops, I would choose nothing but IC Diamond. That stuff is the best in the world.
I tried Arctic Silver V but that is very bad for laptops.
