Solution to Faulty Laptop Graphics Cards

This an important notice about PC laptops! I just heard on the news that laptops made by Hewlett-Packard, Compaq, Dell and Mac; may have an overheated NVIDA Graphics Card, which can damage the main logic board. Symptoms of this problem are weak wireless signals and a blank screen. If your computer is affected by this, file a claim and send your laptop back to its manufacturer and they will either upgrade the graphics card, repair it or even offer you a new laptop with no cost. The reason why this is free is because this situation is so costly, the manufacturers are going to take up the cost of this. If you have been affected by this, doing this procedure could save you $400.00, the amount it would cost for this repair if it was taken to a repair shop. Hurry up! This offer ends March 14th, 2011. Make sure you back any information on your computer before sending it away. The new laptop will arrive in 6-8 weeks.

Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it. You also might want to get a laptop cooler.

It may be an internal hardware issue. Possibly overheating or a damaged component on the main motherboard. If you have a warranty for the notebook, I recommend using it.
