Overheating laptop graphics card or cpu?
\015 I have evesham aquest 640 which I think is the same model as the\302\240Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M348G.\015\012It was working fine for about a year and then suddenly I wasnt getting image. I hooked up a external monitor and got image but it had vertical lines going through it and I could never get windows above 640x480 resolution.\302\240\015\012I took it to repair shop and the guys fixed it somehow (magic?!!)\015\012but since then its been doing the same thing within the space of month. I am quite certain thats its something overheating and BSOD I noticed the error is always the nvkdm.dll error which suggests to me it is definetly the nvidia 7600 GO graphics card that overheating , even though I stopped playing games on it. \302\240I now modified by sticking lego brick underneath the laptop to allow airflow underneath the laptop as the laptop does get very hot \302\240I installed Windows Vista and it worked for a bit if I used nvidia own drivers but not if I install the MS update ones, but even those clonked out eventually. \302\240I also have also installed jaunty jackalope \302\240and for some reason that works really well, it has a graphics heat monitor util which also has a threshold that will tell the graphics to take it easy if temperature gets too high. \302\240I have opened the laptop and applied some thermal paste here and there (cpu mainly). But windows really sucks and I need to get back into windows, is there anything I can do hardware wise to keep the temperature lower or am I going to have use linux and play crappy games ( love you linux :-x )\015

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem. I noticed that the laptop does get really hot, even with a cooling unit underneath it. The computer is now not wanting to turn on after restarting due to recent updates. I get a power light on after pushing the button a few times, no other lights are on, the CPU fans does turn on and the cd rom does spin. F 12
