    Euro's First Bake - Pavilion DV9000 (Help?)

    also forgot to mention , i cut out the fan exhaust grilles a bit to help the heat get out of the back of the laptop

    Euro's First Bake - Pavilion DV9000 (Help?)

    i used a heat gun on my dv9700 , went around the gpu in a circular motion for about 5 mins or so . i used a foil tray on mine which i cut out a hole the same size as the gpu chip to shield nearby components from the heat. 2 years on and mine is still going strong

    23" IPS or 24" TN

    i have both 19" ips and a 19 inch tn side by side on my desk , the ips is so much more vivid and less tiring on the eyes , there really is no comparison ips wins hands down !

    Artifacts while using web browser?

    if you have updated your drivers , roll back to earlier ones , graphics anomalies can be tricky . check all connectors , cables etc . remove any overclocks , cpu and gpu use memtest , memory corruption can be an issue might be worth swapping out psu if you have a spare to test run it in safe mode , see if you still get problems sorry if this list is a bit random but pinning it down can be real hard , i wish you luck

    Benchmark Metro Last Light - crash issues

    its the drivers , 320.49 has lots of known freezing and crashing issues . i would try beta drivers or try 314.07 as they are the most stable
  10. ha ! i shut mine down straight after gaming , temps hitting 60-70 celsius and have had no problems.

    Problem with gtx 650 temperatures

    use evga precision x or similar to over ride the fan speed and set to max speed when gaming !

    In a world of crap

    i would definitely try removing the cpu again and look across all the pins side on and double check that all the pins are straight , then pull everything out - memory gpu and power connectors and re-seat them all . if that doesn't work try a substitute cpu if you have one and see how that goes . it pays to check everything over thoroughly and also it might sound silly but have you tried resetting the bios or changing the bios battery . i hope you get it sorted dude
