I am replacing the fan & heat sink on my laptop and I have never done it before and don't l know what to look for... I have already found the parts I was just wondering if I should be looking for anything specific when it comes to thermal paste? Is there a certain brand that works well?

If you're not overclocking your computer, they are all pretty much the same. Make sure you buy the right thermal compound as some are intended to use for certain parts while others/most are for CPU heatsink/fan.

You go girl! I'll tackle household appliances, but I'd be nervous having to crack open a laptop.
