    If you bump things up slowly as you go, small voltage changes are significant.

    Looks like my 980m is toast. Pretty sure it's the VRM as I can smell burning around there, but there is no visible damage on first impressions.

    I wish the 3940XM had a death smell or visible wound of some sort. Would have saved me hours of troubleshooting and part swapping across 3 machines...


    At least years ago when the 3920XM ES died (within a week of arrival from Chynah) had a black scorch visible on one pin that helped the refund process go through

    Sadly the magic smoke can escape in very stealthy ways ;) transistors are tiny so yeah not always obvious.

    So I started to strip down my P775TM1-G to check the thermal paste and I have a stuck screw in position 7.

    I never stripped this laptop down before so this is down to the retailer.

    Edit: I already tried with a small flathead screwdriver to no avail.

    Any advice/suggestion welcome.
