How to repair laptop graphics

Overheating is a common enemy of notebooks and small devices. It often causes physical problems in the hardware, especially in the CPU and GPU solder joints. Today we will show you how to troubleshooting overheating faults in your laptops.

How to repair laptop graphics

Perhaps the most famous error caused by overheating was that of the console. XBOX. This console, due to a factory fault, was prone to overheating due to lack of cooling. The welds of its CPU y GPU The console would melt at very high temperatures and the console would end up failing due to faulty connections.

This same error is often the cause of graphics card failures in laptops. Being computers that accumulate many components in very little space, the slightest factory defect causes overheating. The solution to this problem is melting the soldering irons and getting them correctly positioned. To do this we will use a tool called stripper.

Paint stripper

This tool blows hot air and makes the surface we want to heat up. In this case we will apply hot air on the CPU and the GPU of our laptop. The temperature at which we should calibrate our paint stripper is approximately 180 degrees (melting temperature of tin).


Once the stripper has been calibrated to the right temperature, all we have to do is blow the hot air out to the CPU y GPU by continuously rotating them. After about 3 minutes, let everything cool down and test if the laptop works again. If it does, we just need to spread a little bit of thermal putty on the CPU and the GPU so that the heatsinks act efficiently and we can start to enjoy our arrangement.

  1. I used the same method
    But between the heatsink and the GPU I used a piece of aluminium from a heatsink and cut it down to 1mm and added thermal paste.
    It is about 10 months old and the temperature reaches 65°c.

    Friends, I think that this idea is not a good one, as the heat from the stripper will certainly damage the microprocessors, transistors and microcomponents of a computer, whether it is a laptop or not.

    I think that instead of fixing one thing you spoil another by giving it high heat.

      According to what I've seen on the internet, they start at around 20 euros.

      Best regards.
