So the other day I got a cheap 'gaming' laptop of gumtree for £250. It is an ASUS K550JX with i7-4720hq and a GTX 950m 4gb with 8gb RAM. I installed a SSD and reinstalled windows and downloaded a game. My CPU and GPU was getting over 90c! So I took the laptop apart and replaced the thermal paste, bearing in mind that I've only ever done this with desktops. I believe that I've correctly replaced everything, now getting 50c in games, but my WiFi card isn't working that great at all, it works for about a minute then after that it just doesn't load up anything. Chrome sometimes pops up with an unresponsive error, so I've reinstalled drivers and chrome but no go. Ethernet works fine.

Kind regards, Kai
