Yes, it is then the GPU that is failing. It could be a thermal issue when it gets hot it shuts of.
Does it sound like the heat problem is causing the gpu problem or the gpu problem is causing the heat problem?
I've read that replacing a laptop video card is a project, but since the unit is useless at this point, I'm willing to try. Where do you suppose I can find a card for this old pc and what do you think it might cost.
The model is HP pavillion xh365
Thanks so much!
