I was worried about that.. Those high end graphic cards generate a lot of heat.. Let me ask this… was there a lot of dust on these boards. That's really a rhetorical question. HP built a laptop, the dv 9000. with a high end graphic embedded in the board with a hot running AMD processor///fast, powerful…after about 2 years in service they stated failing by the thousands…By then most of them was out of warrant and the cause was discovered.. excessive dust build up blocking air flow thought the heat sink… HP made a half-heated effort to correct it but they where convinced with the disclaimers issued and disregarded. it was there problem, and they where right. A class action law suit was file and every one jumped on board for the ride…this would have dragged on for years but HP, in the interest of keeping good relationship with future customs, settled. Bottom line is…a little bit of horse sense or common sense, will take you a long ways in this World. Im a Retired A.S.E Master Certified automotive Tech and 90...
It overheating…..Take the back off. use a can of compressed air and a soft paint brush and carefully clean and blow the bust build up off the circuit boards ,,,clean air vents on back panel.. Nake sure it has good air flow…Bust is a real killer to electronics.
Dryers have several thermal switches for overheat protections. . Locate them, test with ohm meter right after it shuts down. Its a long shot but thats where i would look first. Gas…There may be an intermediate air flow restriction , gas regulator resetting.. careful evaluation.
A year old. Its probable under warranty. . If you take it apart and they discovery it, they would love nothing more then to charge you dearly… Careful …call them let them come out to you as a service call.. its free..
