Did you try the drivers? My 330m was acting up, doing the same exact thing you were experiencing. Itended up being the Nvidia drivers that were bad
THe ones that came out a week ago gave me a black screen, and the version previous to that cause random crashes with no BSOD after random periods of time. If I kept trying the playtime decreased to the point that I couldn't get through menus.

Anywho, if you are still having the problem, try nvidia drivers that are at least 3 updates old.

Yep I updated all drivers, and I do mean every driver. I even updated drivers that had nothing to do with the CPU and GPU. For instance I updated the fingerprint reader and the webcam. I disabled most of the drivers to see if there was a conflict between drivers, but nothing seemed to work.

But, did you try to use OLD drivers? I don't mean to beat a dead horse, and it very well may have been a problem for specifically my old GPU, but try nvidia drivers you know to be stable with your GPU rather than the newest.
If you're still experiencing the problem when the laptop returns that is. Do let us know how you made out.

OK, got my laptop back today and guess what? It was a bad motherboard. They didn't tell me exactly what was wrong with the mobo, probably cause they don't know. But yep that is what it was. I been testing out my system all day by playing some really intense games without the fans on turbo and now it works like a charm. I knew something was wrong with it! Now I just need to replace my hard drive because all those unexpected shut downs have damaged sectors on the platters. I just want to thank everyone for all there help. Hopefully this post will help out others that have a Sager laptop.

Just so everyone know's I do not blame Sager or XoticPC for this. It could have happened with any laptop or desktop computer it just happened to be mine and I went wiggy. lol...

I ordered a Sager 9150 and am concerned with cooling. I did only get the stock thermal compound on the build because they wanted 30 extra bucks to install the IC diamond thermal paste. I ordered my own IC diamond thermal paste from amazon with no tax and free shipping for 7 dollars. I am also going to add some extra copper to the heat pipes and use aluminum tape to seal the top of the heatsink to improve air flow like a previous person suggested. I already use a laptop cooler and have made modifications to the Acer 7740 I currently use. If you are continuing to have heat issues, get better thermal paste and try that, but since the laptop is new and still under warranty, then your answer is apparent. Good Luck!



I JUST READ YOUR POST ABOVE!!!! BAD MOTHERBOARD. NEVERMIND!!!!!! LMAO

The cooling on Sager's is some of the best in the industry. I personally get better temps than my buddy and he has a M18 Alienware. So I wouldn't worry to much about that!

Hi. Also purchased this computer from XoticPC. You have 100% guarantee on all parts and labor plus shipping--I would suggest you use it. They also should do a full testing of this computer for you at no charge. Please call XoticPC asap and tell them what you need. Good luck!

Posted before seeing that you did send it in--did they know HD was bad? They should have replaced it free. Good luck on your use. I'm just starting with mine that arrived today so I may be back with questions for you all--a good group here. Thx for sharing!
