G35-av650 GPU solder problem

I have a question, I have a Qosmio G35-AV650 and I have had a problem with the NVidia GPU on the motherboard. Whenever it heats up, it fries out the solder on the board and looses it connection. I sent it in one time and all they did was swap the motherboard with another refurbished one(I could have done that), but when the computer gets intensive tasks going after sometime, it will give me the lines in my screen, and then not give me any screen at all into bootup. I know they re-solder the chip, but is there a fix for that, and how do you re-solder the chip etc etc?? It's a great laptop if this doesn't keep helping.

As far as the solder question, it's done with something that looks like a big meat tenderizer (picture a whole bunch of soldering iron tips heated all at the same time). Very intense to do with something of your own. You'd have to find a soldering iron with a very small tip. You might try finding a heat sink that's the size of the chip and saw off the fins until it fits between the motherboard and chassis (or wherever). For fun I took apart an old laptop. They used a fan similar to one that connects to the card slots in the back of a desktop PC. The fan exhausts along the one edge of the blades. Check out a computer store that sells used equipment and see if they have a PCI/PCIe graphics card that's got a fan for cooling you could use. I know it's going to be hard to find something small enough to fit inside the laptop, but that's a possibility.

    I can't see highest[32-bit] scn resolution in my system(D845epi


    This motherboard does not contain any integrated graphics (Built into the motherboard)
    Thus no driver from Intel's website will help you.

    You need to determine What the manufacturer of you Video card or at least your GPU is. You can go to that manufacturers website and get the drivers that you need.

    The two big name manufacturers for videocards are

    ATI you can find their drivers at (Which will redirect you to one for AMD. AMD merged with ATI a few years ago)

    Nvidia Their drivers are at

    There are several manufacturers that produce boards with ATI & Nvidia chips among them are
    PNY, ASUS, EVGA, BFG, and many others.

    There are other GPU manufactures but ATI & Nvidia are the most common.
    If your card does not contain an ATI or Nvidia GPU please post the manufacturer and model and I can find the appropriate driver for you.

    Hope this helps

    Boot Problem

    It sounds like you are stuck in the bios. There is several way to reset it


    1 - If you have your motherboard manual look for instructions on how to reset your bios. The is a jumper (set of pins) on the board that will reset it.


    2 -  Unplug your unit from the AC, open the case. Look for a lithium battery and remove it. In the battery socket short the led?s for about 30 seconds. replace the battery close the case.


    Note - Be careful when removing the battery.
