    Please help -- Im getting all kinds of flickering green and red pixels on my N53SN. Its a quad core i7 model with 8bg ram and a GT550M GPU. The GPU drivers are the latest from NVidia and this problem has been getting steadily worse. When I use CPUID HWMonitor, there is no GPU temp listed, but all temps are under 45C. With speedfan, GPU is listed as "0C" but all temps are under 45C.

    Is the card overheating and just needs new paste, or is this a lost cause? Are replacement cards even available?

    It could be the soldered gpu is damaged. What happens if you uninstall the graphics drivers and don't run with any? Do external monitors have the same issue?

    I tried uninstalling the drivers for the Nvidia card and for the Intel integrated graphics but the problem persists. HOWEVER, there do not seem to be any artifacts when I use an external monitor through HDMI. I do not know if the HDMI port is run through the dedicated nvidia card or the integrated intel card.

    For what its worth, my computer is also telling me that the battery is going back and I should consider replacing it. HWMonitor says the battery wear level is at 60%

    Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this issue? The picture is fine through HDMI, but a total mess on the built in monitor. Could the screen be bad? Do I need a new battery? Should I reinstall Windows?

    10.8V
    5200mAh
    56Wh

    Hello guys,

    I planned to upgrade the RAM, since I'll begin working soon with heavy software.
    Mine is an N53SV with i7 - 2670QM / GT540M 2GB
    I looked at the following RAM modules:
    I would like your opinions. Thank you very much!
