Thank you for the info provided, i have tried the step you have mentoined and still have no luck with the boot. I will pop off the back cover to get access towads the hard drive and try the second option , i am hoping this will be the issue since it will be an easy fix and i can just swap the hard drive. One more question i wanted to ask is about the memory sticks, is there a possibility that can be a defect or is it most likely just the hard drive ? The reason i ask is that i was having overheating problems with the unit before i have this recent trouble and it would automatically shut off plenty of times, so i cleaned up the heatsink and fan as well. I am hoping that the overheating did not damage any hardware parts .
I did and noticed it needed a cleaning on the heatsink so I did clean it. I also installed extra fans on the metal shield and still overheats and shuts off. Also the temperature overheat setting is disabled in the bios and it still shuts down. I also ser the screen to turn off when not in use cause I was thinking that the screen would throw a lot of heat as well but still nothing worked.
I believe it is not removable .
Yup it still overheats when I leave the middle cover off where you can access the memory
That I have not tried yet , does the paste tend do ware off after a certain amount of years ? Is the gpu underneath where the heatsink is located ?
Hello, sorry for the late reply. I ordered a tube of compound heatsink because I did not have any on me. When it arrives I will give that a try and see if it helps. Another thing I noticed is that if I don't use the computer that much and leave it running in the backround it does not shut off , it can stay on the whole day and night, but if I use it the next day and log in it will shut off right away sometimes. So I'm not sure if this is a overheating issue or something else and also I installed windows 8. Could this make a difference ?
