Hello all!!! First post.
Well I work tech support at Midstate College and a student brought in a funky lapto. It boots ok, but after running for a bit, the screen begins to get discolored and the image on the screen seems to pull the bottom right hand corner. I attempted to run various spyware programs but after a few minutes the screen would get very screwy. Since she had little to no files to save, I decided to reformat it. In which was a failure. I noticed that the laptop is hotter than other laptops I have previously worked on. Can anyone give me any more advice? I believe the heatsink could be the cause of the problem and I pray that it is not the motherboard. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
