Well iv had this computer for about 5 years now and i opened it up to put more ram in it and clean it with a duster when the two things that were holding down the metal cooler thing for the bio's chip came loose now when i turn on the computer it overheats and shuts off, is there anyway i could glue the two things back down to keep the bio's cooler from coming up and letting the bios chip overheat? i would really appreciate it becuase i have spent alot of money into this computer like graphic cards ram and things like that and would hate for it to go to waste becuase my other computers cant use the items i got for this computer

This thermal tape would i be able to put it on the bio's chip becuase i lost the little hooks that keep the part ontop of the bio's chip. and anyways they go through the board in little holes. (by the way i took it to bestbuy's geeksquad which i knew was a waste of time and they said it would cost 240-300 dollars just for the little parts which were only two little chips of everyday plastic and a thin metal rod going through them. i will post a picture of what i mean later on.

The adhesive tape should be able to hold the heatsink to the chipset by itself, without a clip. If needed i just replaced a compaq motherboard that had gone bad. It has the heatsink in the below picture. If needed i could extract the clip parts and mail them to you for a small labor fee Of $5 + shipping costs($2).

I will chop the whole thing out with my dremel moto-tool as the MB is dead anyway.
