I am running a onboard graphics due to a driver malfunction still, all of this started when updating the drivers,
I tried rolling back, I tried uninstalling amd completely, which worked for a small amount of time,
I have vertical lines in my boot screens, someone said this may be a slightly disconnected monitor cable as the artifacts are uniform and unchanging, booting using the card as the primary causes BSOD’s
Should I open up my notebook and check? when it first happened, video turned off completely for monitor but hdmi was fine… so I was thinking it’s some sort of recording prevention system.
second off I need to know what the best thermal paste is for my cpu/gpu as I am suspicious it came unstuck again,
and third off, I have a dell 1558 notebook and the heat sink is in a very silly location,
anyone know of a way to get rid of the fan and make it external somehow? portability is not a issue, but the thing is nested in so deep, it always gets clogged with dust and you have to remove EVERYTHING to get to it.
right now my solution is to use air conditioning output through a silica packet system to remove moisture, and then I dump the cold air directly into the air intake…
I have a Ati 5470
