I'm not being rude to you kid but you appear to have little to no knowlage of the guts of a computer. In my opinion you best better take it to a shop and let them remount the heatsink if that's what you think it is. Myself and shops in my area only charge 20 bucks to install a new or remount an old heatsink.
But my money's on it's just needing a good cleaning.
