It overheats causing 'thermal stress'...there's a reason why Nvidia told their stockholders in their annual report about a huge charge they will have to take, roughly $200 million, yes. HP knows about it and the limited models numbers are bogus...its way more models they have listed on their website and they know. there is a class action lawsuit, just google it. Otherwise you gotta buy a new motherboard. However the problem will arise again until they fix the defectiveed Nvidia GPU.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Also I would replace the Thermal Paste on the Processor (CPU), and Thermal Pad on the GPU. (Graphics chipset)
In fact I would do away with using a Thermal Pad, and use a piece of copper sheeting, that is thick enough to take it's place. Use Thermal Paste on the top of the GPU, and top of the small piece of copper sheet.
[Respectively, VGA stands for Video Graphics Array,
Scroll down to the third post for a better photo of the graphics card.
Replace? I think you would much better off with a newer laptop, that has a better graphics 'engine'. (Graphics chipset)
Don't believe your motherboard chipset will support a better graphics card, IF you can get one that will plug in. Dell made (HAD made) those graphics cards, and the slot they plug into on the motherboard; a Proprietary item.
This model of laptop has an overheating problem. This problem affect the Nvidia GPU and cause that issue. You have two options, one cheap and one expensive.
The cheap one is that you must overheat the Nvidia GPU, in order to resolde it again. This procedure you can make it with a Heat Gun. I mean you need to extract the motherboard and apply the heat directly to the GPU 90 seconds max. Put all the pieces together again (dont forget to apply thermal paste to CPU and GPU) and when the laptop turn on again, go to the HP website and download the las Bios update to your model.
This solution give you as long time as you work with your laptop fresh. You can download the CORETEMP application, to keep watching the CPU temperture.
Cost: $ 20 Heat Gun (harbor freight), $ 7 new thermal paste (for the CPU and GPU)
The expensive one is send your computer to a authorize service center and ask for a reballing repair to your GPU. Cost may be $ 200.
Try reflow technique. It could work. Its might be a GPU problem. It can be overcome by doing reflow technique. You
need to do following. 1. Uncover ur PC casing 2. Locate the
nVIDIA PCI-E Card. 3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU
fan. 4. Remove the pin. 5. Switch on ur PC. 6. Still u may get
scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes. 7. Press
reset button on ur PC. 8. Ur PC might work. 9. Switch it off. 10.
Connect the power supply pin back as it is. 11. Power on ur PC. thats
Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a
reflow technique. Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink),
as it may be in higher temperature. Try this, it works most.
Hi mate GPU is short for Graphics Processor Unit and nVidia is the type of GPU they may use for that desktop or laptop, by the way I am a firm believer of G-Force nVidia graphics cards they are very awesome very fast and awesome graphics being displayed from them I'll definitely go for that option if I were you.
Nahh...you can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.
