CCU, Day 2 – Laptop repair day

CCU, Day 2 - Laptop repair day

It used to play games. Now it over heats and shuts off. Last time this happened it was because the thermal pad on the GPU dried up. (There was also a dust ball the size of a hamster in the heat vent thanks to a piece of tape that HP had used to cover a gap.) So I suspect the arctic silver is toast. You have to completely take the damn thing apart to get to the GPU and the heat sink. This might take a while.
