G75VW: Random shutdown and reboots

Recommended Posts

You wanna know the recipe for success?

Don't wait any further, click below

2 years of various trouble shooting

A cup of anger and despair

3 pounds of thermal pate

One broken ffc-cable

...

Lets cut to the chase, none of this worked.

So as a last resort I put both the motherboard and graphic card in the oven.

8.5 minutes

200 celcius

And now the laptop works flawlessly. I can finally play at original speeds WITHOUT any shutdowns. :Banane57:

The thing that caused these problems were probably some solder joints that got overheated. And most likely made them prone to loose connection.

Now we play the waiting game, to see how long this fix will continue to work.

Disregard this, the problem came back. :52_002:

I did some research on this kind of problem, and found some new info.

 

It seems to be a problem with the graphic-chip. If you heat it up in the oven like I did it will restore some functionality, but only temporarily. So for a permanent fix I have to replace the graphic card or the chip.

 

Here's a clip of Louis Rossmann explaining more in depth.

The problem is now fixed. I bought  a 660m from a G75VX-model and had to buy the heat sink that fitted G75VW. Both from ebay with a total cost (shipping included) of 1000 sek.

 

That might be a lot for such an old card, but now I have a computer that finally work.
