    Hello I am back with even worse problems.

    Watched the MSI GS60 video here:

    Did everything the guy mentions until the part the mobo comes off - mine doesn't because it feels stiff/stuck at the thunderbolt port I circled in red in the pic.

    I do not want to break the mobo in two trying to lift the mobo off however I cannot see what I am missing here.

    Do you guys happen to have any experience with such a laptop or maybe pose a suggestion please?

    Thanks.

    You might want to hit up the GS60 owner's lounge threads.

    Ok, overcome that. Thunderbolt port was getting stuck under the plastic framing so, with a bit of forcing, the port came loose along with the motherboard.

    We could now reach the CPU and GPU fan and cooling block that is installed on top of CPU and GPU, however, the screws have been slackened (sp?) - I mean they do not get unscrewed, they got eroded.

    Here is my LAST of problems before being able to apply the thermal paste:

    By the way, will I apply the thermal paste over the bare part I will see?

    You can easily get these stripped screws out. you’ll need a drill with a drill bit.

    You can drill the screw with very very light pressure until the screw head is gone, which will take no time at all. Then the cooler will lift away, and you can unscrew the remains of the drilled screw out with needle nose pliers. i had to do this on my laptop.

    These factory screws are usually made of poor quality, and you could probably grind a flat head in to them with a butter knife lol. Aftermarket stainless steel screws are always a upgrade on gaming laptops.

    Good luck. And don’t give up on this. Be careful with reassembly! These forums will get you digging in to your laptop like never before, but when it fires back up after re-assembling everything it will be worth it.

    There and back again...not with a story that has a happy ending, yet hopefully, though.

    We disassembled the motherboard and the GPU/CPU fan thermal blocks applied Cooler Master Mastergel Maker and re-assembled it back.

    The GPU fan is noisy now, as in a cable inside is touching it PLUS although the machine powers up, I get no visual signal on the screen.

    Hope I didn't $½%! this rig up ):

    Oh, I guess the unit is old enough that the thread is closed. Sorry didn't notice that.
