    Hello again. being bad the nvidia, I can test the computer (to check the rest of components) with the integrated graphics card? if this is possible, what would it take to make the clevo p170em boot using the integrated graphics card and forget about the dedicated? start normally?

    That's the thing, you don't have an integrated GPU, optimus first came out along with the ivy bridge. You're completely stuck with the dedicated GPU.

    chances of your dedicated GPU coming back to life with the oven is insanely high. So don't worry to much about it, I would however play around with the voltage and maybe considering applying some really high quality thermal compound like liquid metal or if u're to scared of that kryonaut. If u keep your temps really low, you could actually run the card for years.

    When considering a new graphicscard for your P170EM, you should try and get something like an AMD HD 8970M, its the best price per performance card and is still rather beastly. It would mop the floor with your old GTX 670M. Even a GTX 675M SLI system would not stand a chance against the AMD Card.

    Considering ur sandy bridge CPU and your system as such, i'd strongly recommend you going for that update, it would boost your performance in games massively.

    You could buy it from here:

    I doubt he has the money to spend on such a card. Since he's likely one of the guys who would want to get the best performance per buck. In case of price per performance, the AMD card destroys the GTX 1060.

    You can read of his post:
    That he obviously does not have the money to spend on. So going for the AMD Card is by far the best choice he could make, given his situation.

    may be but my post was only a useful information if OP would like have same performances (+350% more than 670m) of a new laptop with a gtx1060 :)

    yes, I do not want to spend more money because I bought it second hand and in theory the laptop worked but this problem has appeared. so I'm not interested in spending more on it, but would have bought something new.

    Pretty sure that the GTX 1060 is more than only 350% faster than the GTX 670M. The AMD is already around 2.5times the performance of the GTX 670M, while the GTX 1060M is twice as strong as the AMD, meaning the 1060 is probably more than 500% faster in reality.

    However, the GTX 1060 is 575USD while the AMD card is 152USD. Also I really don't know if the GTX 1060 won't be bottlenecked by the sandy bridge CPU as well. I honestly think that the GTX 1060, unless we talk extreme edition CPU might be wasted.

    Clevos are actually extremely durable, the only issues that are happening are that the GTX 4xx - GTX 6xx series had weak solder and therefore are dying right now, not only that, but the AMD HD 6xxx - 7xxx series are also dying as well. Both companies started to use higher quality material to build their GPU's so basicially cards from the GTX 7xx series and HD 8xxx series upwards are really hard to kill.

    I would not be suprised if the previous owner actually scammed you, by repairing the GTX 670M in the oven and then sold it to you. As I already mentioned, the oven fix is only temporarily, that's why i suggested buying a new card like the HD 8xxx so that you not only have something that actually lasts way longer, but also something that runs newer games.







    As you can see, the card is still VERY capable. So i'd defnitely consider it as a "last update" for your used notebook.
