I just resurrected my laptop today. Repaste your cpu at the same time. Some drilling, cutting, sanding, and mounting later, this is the end result of the custom modification: Basically, a hole was cut where the fake sticker used to be. I think the next step would be using the heat gun. But after one month it sows the same problem. Knowing that first requires a lot of knowledge about your computer, which is something that sometimes is not really on the internet if it is not very popular.
With some luck you can boost gaming performance and frame rates by 20 % or more, making a previously unplayable game playable or allowing you to turn up the details in demanding titles. While these steps may reduce some of the heating, the issue still occurs during high demands on the computer. I used some liquid stuff for improving soldering results, put as much as I could under the nvidia chip. If anyone knows of a way to fix this another way, I'm all ears. I like your idea of using screws to elevate the board. So if you have a computer system that starts working slower and slower and then switches off for no apparent reason, overheating could be your problem.Next
It keeps crashing and failing and restarting, even though I have updated the drivers. Till now i have done this 7 times and my laptop shows the same problem again and again in near about 1 month of time. Now you are free to start adjusting those clock speeds, but be careful! Again, thank you all so much for the feedback! Product does not come with warranty unless stated otherwise in product description. Why should I the consumer have to pay more to get it fixed or try myself to fix it and risk further damage after buying a costly item. To protect the motherboard from the heat I used a regular cooking aluminum foil. Not a real vent, but something that is supposed to look like one.Next
Use your laptop on a hard flat surface. It would seem as if excessive amounts of thermal compound could cause your system to heat up slightly more and if it is running close to the maximum allowed temperature it might cause overheating. After that it was working fine. From there, a new silver color metal vent was secured to the plastic, and the laptop was reassembled. It seems like arctic silver5 is very common and recommended, so was going to pick that up.Next
Although the tests are not 100% lab proven the do give and idea of what to expect. They gave me the board within 15-20 days. However, today I got most of the necessary things flux, heat gun and did it for 53 sec without removing anything other than the keyboard on the other side. Product may includes warranty, and accessories found with the original product. When was the last time you took a can of compressed air to it? Cut it too wide and you cant secure the mesh and ring, too skinny and you will be able to see the black plastic through the mesh.Next
I have found that if after I turn on the laptop and it powers on without booting I just leave the laptop on a pillow or any other surface which is a poor conductor of heat and let the laptop get very very warm for about an hour, the laptop will work when I power dowm the laptop and reboot. The warmer they run, the shorter the life span of the chip. All this to get rid of the heat and make the system run faster. This video was made for Xbox 360 motherboard but should apply to any laptop motherboard too. This creates a frame rate cap which can significantly reduce the amount of heat.Next
I think this method is more reliable and the repair should last for a while. I used a slightly hotter heat gun from a longer distance away. I blasted the chip for 50 secs on the lowest heat gun setting from a distance of around two inches moving the gun around slightly. First, I would try removing memory modules one by one. Furthermore, this step is optional so you can move to another step.Next
I have a g7-1075dx with an Nvidia chip that I too believe has a bad connection laptop turns on and just sits there and does not boot. Also I would recommend a laptop cooling pad for longer play times to keep those temperatures in check. Thanks again so much guys, big help here. I took a duster to it for the first time in the 20months Ive had it a few nights ago, but surprisingly didn't see very much dust build up. That's money I'd like to not waste again.Next
