Compaq presario CQ-45,removed thermap pads and applied paste
ati HD 3200 GPU
AMD Turion X2 RM-70 Dual-Core Mobile Processor
My laptop has heating problem..
I took apart mine, sadly my GPU thermal pad was very old, dusty and sticky...So i removed the pad applied some paste on the GPU and the heatsink surface that touches my GPU.(to be clear there was no paste before only a thermal pad).. But my cpu had old thermal paste dripping of.. So i removed it and also reapplied new paste.
Temprature diff. is not very much. here are the results:---
With 5 chrome tabs and yahoo messenger + Hardware monitor utility --- Core temps- 61, Mainboard temp- 55, Hard disk-48 [Celcius]
With 5 chrome tabs and yahoo messenger + Hardware monitor utility + ANgry Birds Space--- Core temps- 86, Mainboard temp- 67, Hard disk-48 [Celcius]
These are almost or you can say SAME as before
HELP... If applying copper shim between my gpu and heatsink will do any good ? Also the part of my heatsink that covers my gpu does not have a copper(yellow) surface .. its surface is normal as in -->(grey coloured..)
I can post a picture If needed !!
Thx in advance

Here is the pic before applying thermal PASTE !!!
these 2 pads as you can see look pretty . ...square one(right) is for the GPU and the rectangle one(left) is for two little squares on my motherboard(Can any body tell me what are those ? look below in the image)
