We have seen a steady increase in heating issues on many laptops with high end graphics cards. Most of these laptops have upgraded Nvidia graphics chips over the standard Intel 3000, 4000, 5000 integrated graphics chips. Nvidia has acknowledged these problems on some of their GPU’s, but has made it difficult for consumers to get their laptops repaired with a non-faulty chip. Our recommendation is to search for your specific laptop model and see if there is a class action lawsuit or recall you can participate in. We have successfully submitted claims for clients in the past and had success.
Overheating can cause failure of the graphics chip, motherboard and other components within the laptop. If you are unable to get your laptop repaired, we recommend a cooling pad and keeping your laptop on a hard level surface in order to facilitate proper cooling.
