I'm trying to understand, if replacing the CPU will fix a No Display issue due to overheating?  As I understand it, the Graphics are built into the CPU, but is it like Intel, or is it shared but in another location on the System Board.  I ask because I would like to be able to fix these when this happens.  Lack of maintenance makes this happen of course, but will replacing the CPU Fix it?


I've tried everything to fix these, and always connect an external Display and that don't work either.  It's always when the Heatsink is 100% plugged up.


I'm also trying to understand what the extra pad is that shares the heatsink tube to cool with, like in the diagram below #3 and #4?  Just trying to save more of these old good Windows 7 machines.  This would be the CPU in question now.
