It ain't hard. Look up a video of your model and use a spatula, IIRC them consumer HPs have a tendency be a bit fiddly. As for thermal paste Arctic MX4 is cheap and good.Mm I might have to open it up myself then. What's "bad heatsink compound" please?
Sure, once the thermals are ok and if the cooling system actually can handle the components during sustained loads. I don't know how well that particular laptop handles heat, but some consumer HPs have definitely had underwhelming cooling.
