I have a S10-3. On http://www.s10lenovo.com/ forums I found that If I remove the thermal pad and use thermal paste instead, It can decrease the temperature. So I did that many times to test different kinds of thermal pastes. Disassembling and assembling was successful every time. I knew what I was doing. But this time, after disassembling and assembling, it didn't boot properly. Blank screen. No lenovo logo, No beep. Power status and battery status LEDs light up and HDD LED lights up for a moment and then it parks its head. Wireless LED blinks once at start. Cooling Fan stops after a short moment. CPU works OK because I can turn it of by pressing power button 3 Secs, Last time I disassembled that, I also removed the RAM to see if thermal paste fits under heat-sink. Is my RAM dead because of unsafe touch or it may has another reason? (Whatever I read in Internet that was similar to my issue, was because of upgrading RAM with an incompatible one. Before I tried a 4 GB RAM and I'd gotten same results like what I have gotten this time. [If sentences are a little strange, that is because I'm not English ]
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes. It had same results as inserting a 4 GB RAM. But I'll try another RAM tomorrow. I hope it be RAM. I can't change the mainboard. No Lenovo support in Iran, No Replacement.
GPU and CPU seem are not soldered. It seems they are sticked using thermal glue. Anyway I didn't do anything except pasting thermal paste on GPU and CPU. The only part could be damaged was RAM, because of unsafe touching and static electricity. Let's see what's what's the cause of it by replacing the RAM.
