    yeah, stupid nvidia!!! why'd u have to release the 485M right after i bought my NP8850?!? why?!?!?! *hitting ground*

    hopefully a 485M or higher will be going into my NP8850 by the end of this year/beginning of next year. :p any fellow NP8850 owners thinking about upgrading their GPU's down the road also?

    Definitely, I am 100% positive the GTX485M is compatible with this laptop already and any newer MXM3.0b card should work. The only thing is I'm moving back home in a few months from college so I have yet to decide the fate of my laptop :) I'm big in overclocking and I'm starting to miss it lol! I don't like overclocking mobile i7, the thing runs too hot right off the bat and clocks down.

    The waiting game never ends though, the GTX480M remains a powerful card.

    Hey did you ever find a solution for this issue? Im BELIEVE Im having the same issue. I tried reapplying thermal paste and clean everything out pristinely. The temps look very normal to me. i run a steady 43C with no games or hard app running. When game or graphics app running it hits 64C-79C but it shuts off abruptly. The heat of the actual laptop isnt too hot either..

    Tell me something...
    Does your power brick have a built in LED power indicator?
    If yes, do the following:
    Do everything you can to reproduce the problem, keep an eye on the LED all time. When the laptop shuts off, does the LED flicker, dim or switch off for a split second?
    If yes, then all you need is a new power brick. Sadly my reseller didn't consider my problem as a faulty power brick even though it was since it couldn't handle gaming load. Since then, I've bought two aftermarket 180W power bricks and they handle the load flawlessly.
