Question about Samsung N150 Netbook
Sounds like crappy solder on th gpu. Basically, you need to take a hair dryer to the GPU and reseat it. HP had this problem on a bunch of older DV models. Without knowing your model, I can't post specific instructions.
Thermal paste, I recommendArctic Silver as it has better heat transfer properties
Strip the chassis to the motherboard, pull the heatsink from the GPU and set the board on a heat resistant surface. Clean all old thermal paste from the GPU. Heat up the GPU with your hair dryer while using the wooden spoon to press down on it.. When you see the solder turn shiny, turn off the dryer. Continue to press down on the GPU until the solder changes back to a dull color. Let everything cool down before reassembly. During reassembly, make sure to clean the old thermal paste off the heatsink and reapply a fresh layer. Reassemble your laptop, and turn it on to see if the fix worked.
I know at one point there was a bad batch of solder that made its way onto assorted motherboards, so this fix may work for the same issue on many laptops. Good luck!
