    The DM2 can take a 1060 or 1070? It has a 1070 but it hasn't gamed at all.

    Can the ZM take a 1070?

    Can the DM2 take a 970m?

    For testing purposes.

    If it has an eDP yes to zm so long as it's a standard mxm shape (not clevo)

    No to the dm2 due to shape.

    For the ZM, shutting down, if the GPU is removed, then the laptop is powered without a shutdown, this would pinpoint the GPU and a possible short?

    Without a gpu it will shut down after 30 seconds.

    OK, GPU not eliminated. That would have worked as a test if it didn't power on at all, removing it and then powering on for 30 seconds. I misunderstood what I read in another thread.

    The behaviour suggests that a component the ECU monitors is not returning temperature/speed data. Usually this is the gpu. It's hard to confirm without having one to test.

    Yes, finding one to test with is the current dilemma.

    The DM2 went to a different repair shop yesterday. It is up today. They did a reflow on the 1070 and are stress testing it.

    Is reflowing a GPU just a stop gap measure? Should I plan on replacing it in the near future or wait until the next failure. Is another failure inevitable?

    That was a funny phone call. :D
    "You know you have overclocking software on your machine?"
    "Yes"
    "You should remove it. We don't recommend overclocking."
    "I underclocked with it."

    I may need to inform them that the "overclocking" software (CCC, XTU) was put on there, standard issue. :D
