    Hello .

    My laptop (clevo p170em) have a problem. When powered on only show the power button light in white and the bluetooth in orange. Then show three blinking lights (num lock, caps lock, scroll lock) and the fan runs, and past few seconds then the laptop powered itself off. The screen always black

    you tell me what happens, or what does that code indicate?

    Best regards

    Ignacio

    You can try and bake it in an oven. The blink and fan spinning is basicially happening because your notebook can't detect the temp sensors of your card.

    Also upgrading your card might not be a bad idea tho, you can get much more performance in games with an upgrade.



    here is a video on how linus was doing it.

    I've never used an oven to do this, always used a heatgun instead. So i'd say you should do it like this:
    - Preheat oven to 200c
    - Clean you card with isopropylalcohol
    - make small aluminium balls with aluminium foil like this:
    [​IMG]
    - Put card into 200c oven for around 7 minutes
    - Take out the card
    - Let it cool down for 20-30mins
    - Check if it works on notebook.

    Post your results here on the forums.

    removing the graphics card does exactly the same as with it.

    I will do what indicated Danishblunt next week and I will tell you if there has been luck
