Question about HP Compaq nx7010 Notebook
It is almost 15-16 months I have been using this laptop. now it has started showing a new problem, ie, multiple displays. I have searched throughout the internet and have found that many other people with the same model laptop have similar or exactly the same issue. I have also found that the problem is related to the NVIDIA graphics chip. The problem has occurred due to over heating of the system throughout the time period (overheating is yet another problem of this model). The only practical solution possible is to get the graphics card repaired or replaced with new one (which is very costly).And it would be better if you guys get it repaired from local technicians as this issue is not considered under your guarantee and HP will cost you a lot.Apart from this another fact remains that HP Service is one of the worst service I have come across in my entire life. It is their hobby to test your patience and waste your time. It took them two months to replace my battery. Anyways, even if you get it repaired, there is a chance of re-occurrence of this issue. Well, my idea is to sell off this system once i get it temporarily repaired, as i think, there is no use of spending a huge amount on an outdated laptop. Well the choice is yours !
In my dealings with HP and their supposed high end laptops....I'm astonished you got 15-16 months out of it. I refurbish them and go to extremem lengths to make sure that they don't come back with ptoblems and knock on wood I have yet to have a return because of a part or system failure. Sell your laptop on E-Bay and at least get some of your money back from the experience. I usually end up buying the laptops with problems and tearing them down and rebuilding. My focus is eliminating the over-heating issue. There are some changes out there, HP is releasing new BIOS updates for its laptops...these new BIOS instructions contain new algorythims to make the fan more efficient and run faster and longer to help cool the unit. Copeer sheeting is also used on the processor and graphics to augment cooling. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

This is a known fault in the Nvidia mobile gpu chipset. The only fix is motherboard replacement as there is no seperate video card. You can find a replacement mother board for about $120 on Ebay and a few other places, If its good then you have a usable system again but for how long is the question. You may want to consider just parting it out as the price of repair and your sale price isn't going to add up to being worthwhile. You won't be ahead of the game.
