is there a better way to cool my computer?

I was given, a few years back, a compaq armada 7400. my brother took it apart (because he accidentally hit it with a sledgehammer and damaged the scroll knob mouse thing - don't ask) and decided that this "wire" was unnecessary. he proceeded to cut this wire. turns out, it was the heatsink. so, now I need to know- what is the quickest, dirtiest way to cool my crappy laptop? I want to make it a digital picture frame.

Fit a big heatsink, or see if it will underclock? L
Try a laptop stand or a cooling pad. These can reduce your temperature by 10 degrees

put it in the fridge water cool it or just re-solder the wire
