    Repped, thank you very much for sharing.

    On a side note, how often should the TIM be changed if I'm not planning on OCing my laptop or anything?

    I've never had to change anything with a desktop graphics card so I really don't know.

    Thanks everyone for the reps! This forum has been a great source of information for me - just trying to do my part in giving back to this forum.

    Every TIM will break down over time. I have no idea how long it takes, but I'm sure it depends on a lot of conditions. I.e. The TIM used of course (ICD7 is supposed to have a longer lifespan), how much the PC is used, the temperatures, etc. I'm pretty sure I've seen posts discussing this here, but once again couldn't find them! Man my search skills suck:D.

    Much appreciated. Great writeups and pictures. Still have difficulty to visualize the Media Bar removal. But I am real clumsy with my hands.

    I got a broken express card latch. Can I fix it or I have to send it back to Gateway?

    Thinking about open my laptop to see if I can fix it.

    :(
