Where are the cpu and the gpu located? I need to re apply heat paste.
I recently bought a used Dell 5510 and it worked fine for the first couple weeks and suddenly it started getting hot below the top edge of the touchpad. I took the battery out and ordered a new one thinking that must be the problem. It was not, as it still was getting hot, too hot to rest your palm on it when typing. The seller recommended replacing the thermal paste on both the cpu, and the gpu, but I’m not positive where they are located.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Does the fan spin?
