Tekst:

Felt like I should add that I tried all of the soft options above but none worked for my sudden 3 beep death

So I took the brave option and removed the logic board as per the ifixit guide

Baked it for 8 minutes at 180C

Put new thermal paste on and reassembled

IT WORKS!

I was super skeptical but 9/10/18 is day 1

Hopefully it lasts a while.

Interestingly when I removed the heatsink the old paste was dry and like chalk, and can’t have done much

Prior to the failure, I recall about 6 months of the computer getting really hot in the lap and the fan going overdrive

So perhaps that was sopmething to do with it as well.
