Heatsink came off CPU cooler

I am having trouble with a laptop. It appears to be overheating and shutting down. I removed the back cover and noticed the heat pipe just fell off the CPU cooler. Does this mean I need a whole new CPU cooler? Or do you just attach the pipe back to the cooler somehow? TIA

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Just remove the old thermal paste, and put new CPU Thermal paste, and make sure the heat sink is well clipped on CPU.

That pipe doesn't "clip in " to anything. I checked on YouTube and only found two videos that cpu cooler comes off. Both are by undoing the screws that hold it to the cpu and off as one piece, or gpu whichever component that is cooling.
