Asus NV56VZ laptop is not stable.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I dont think the heat sink is on properly.

The short version of the story is my brother messed with the bios and broke it. We sent our laptop in to be repaired. It was out of warranty so we had to pay for it. Anyways we paid to replace the mother board. About 1 month later I received the fixed laptop.

When I move the laptop I hear screws moving around inside. However that is not the biggest problem. The problem it is over heating while installing programs and in some cases the laptop just turnoff. So I tested my theory and ran prime95 and 30 seconds in it shut off again. After turning off I can't turn the laptop on until I let it cool down for about 20-30 seconds.

Do you guys think the heat sink for the cpu is not mounted correctly? What should I do?

It definitely sounds like that could be the cause. If I were you, I would send it right back to ASUS and tell them to fix their poor repair job and that they are going to pay for 2 day shipping both ways (like they would if you were still under warranty)

If you don't want to do that, you can always disassemble it yourself and properly seat the heatsink with some good thermal paste. IC Diamond is great stuff that is super easy to use, but whatever you do, do not get Artic Silver.
