SOURCE: My Packard Bell ixtreme m3720,

I had the same issue with this motherboard and afterchecking all of the obvious stuff, PSU, RAM etc it pointed to what I suspectedfrom the start - The Nvidia onboard GPU.
This is the same type of graphics BGA (Ball Grid Array) chip that is constantlyfailing in laptops and I have seen it fail on an ASUS PC motherboard and nowthis Packard Bell / NEC MCP73PVT-PMmotherboard too.
You can repair the laptop motherboards (albeit mostly only for a limited timebefore it fails again) by reflowing the chipset with a heat gun (£10 - £20) availablefrom most hardware stores like B&Qsparkyuiop_0.jpg.
There is plenty of info to be found via Google and YouTube by searching thewords "Reflow Nvidia GPU". It is important though that you remove theheat sink (see picture) and cover the board in tin foil, exposing only the Nvidiachip for heating.
It is also a good idea to get some liquid flux first and dribble it under theNvidia before you heat it. The most important thing to remember is once it ishot, DO NOT PUSH DOWN ON THE CHIP!! LOL! That will be Game Over....
You may also find it a good idea to heat the entire board on a concrete flatsurface once you have reflowed the GPU so that it retains its original shapeafter being pulled about by the CPU heat sink. Heat the whole board only somuch that you can still touch it with your fingers and stay away from theplastic PCI slots as much as possible.
It sounds like a right mission but it is actually pretty straight forward andcan be done in under 30 minutes. Give it a go, if you toast your board at leastyou can be safe in the knowledge there was no other cost effective way torepair it.
Just to add, mine has been on for 3 hours now and it is still running sweet. Iam using a PCIe plug in graphics card though in the theory it will take theload off the Nvidia chipset.
Good Luck!

Please rate this if it helped. Thank you.

SOURCE: can i upgrade my packard bell 5090 motherboard?

No. And old isn't what your PC is......it's ancient. Packard Bell machines from that era were in proprietary cases, making upgrades difficult if not impossible. Additionally, the power supply will probably be underpowered and will may not have the correct power connectors for modern mainboards . It's time to part with the old relic and get a new one.
