Repairing an overheating Acer all in one computer at Leamington Spa in Warwickshire

We are now with a customer on Albert Street, Milverton in Leamington Spa,Warwickshire, the customer has an Acer all in one Z5600 computer system, the customer had asked us to repair it as the issue here is that the computer will power off after 30 minutes of use.

We checked the Bios set up and this machine had a computer heath check section which was suggesting that the processor was running at 70 degrees C , we disassembled the computer and found minor debris in the copper grills of the heat sink which we cleaned out, we then removed the heat sink from the board and found that the heat transfer pad that was fitted as standard had started to disintegrate so we removed the old pad and cleaned the processor with Isopropyl and then replaced with heat conductive paste,
