    Must admit sounded crazy but the computer had been setting for a year so I figured couldn’t mess it up anymore than it was. Tried the blanket trick ( GOT VERY HOT !!) but sure as heck worked !!! Booted up normally downloaded updates from Microsoft addressed cooling issues, and its back to normal as far as I can see…fingers crossed…….Thanks…. J

    I have an HP laptop that the screen went blank on. I tried your suggestion of taking the battery and hard drive out and wrapping the machine in a blanket plugged in for 90 minutes. The computer now works again. I very much appreciate that you took the time to post this. Thanks very much.

    Thank for the help!!
    This trick it worked!!
    You right, need a good laptop cooler to help prevent my machine from overheating again.
    Is re-bead be a more permanent solution?? Also, is it help if a copper coin (American penny)insert into the gap between the laptop original cooler and the GPU?? Since the gap between the laptop original cooler and the GPU have enough space to put a penny inside!!

    I would close with the blanket the fan outlet?

    It worked! A friend gave me his laptop to fix from “viruses”. It was simply an XP problem but the screen would turn purple. After installing Windows 8 things would heat up, and when installing the GPU drivers finally gave up with a blue screen. I found it too problematic to reflow it as opening the DV9000 is a pain. Good thing I found this article!

    […] This time I learned what might have caused the possible failure of my video graphics card – it might be attributable to the computer having once overheated, causing the solder that connected the card to the motherboard to melt (or something to that effect), thus separating the card from its source of power.  One of the recommended remedies to this situation was heating the computer hot enough to enable the solder to melt again and reattach itself to the motherboard.
