I think you answered your own question; it was not dead at all just need a CMOS clear. However, keep running ATI Tool etc on it and that may no longer be the case.
well at least someone caught on too what i was saying

I am seeing people that let overnight their computers and LAPTOPS streesing them and that's fine?
And I am only testing taking care to avoid overheat (temps don't reach 60º) with a fan for minutes with the exception of atitool (1 hour, 3 days) and that's bad?

You didn't said that you simply swore and saying that I am trying to kill it intentionally. Very different

Well sure some people do that but, first of all, rarely on a laptop and even so they are testing the stability of an overclock in most cases. And overnight is overkill IMO anyway; I sure don't like to put my expensive components through that much stress.

I think you have determined already that this laptop has no real hardware malfunction but if you keep messing with it like this instead of simply using it that could easily change.

agreed keep playing with furmark and OCCT and i would bet that you end up delaminating the GPU from the PCB

^ What he said - f*****g with a laptops r srs businessez and best left alone unless you really dont want the laptop and just want to destroy it for the hell of it. otherwise it could be a lengthly RMA process if they need to swap the board out.

best not touch anything. if you want something more powerful for games - get a more powerful laptop.

Nope I never stressed anything for more than 1 hour, in the desktop or laptop. I don't overclock anything. I only run at maximum of 10 mins because I'm afraid that some component could fry or something. The damm memtest was the exception because when I ran it first time in the laptop it artifacted like crazy but only sometimes...
Anyway I finished testing and use it until breaks..

GPU temp = 55º, CPU temp = 50º.

LOL if I would overclocked it and play some HD video or game for 2 hours on it, some people in this forum would come home, kill me, and "save" the poor mistreated laptop :mad:
For games I have my desktop comp.

I think you should just be happy it seems to be working at this point. If you want to mess with it further as a means of testing install Ubuntu on it or some shit. That scans and puts load on most/all of the components but doesn't greatly stress it.

Nah I just finished with it and I will enjoy it ;). I formatted it to clean the mess and reinstalled Windows 7 though I have driver problems

Me - my laptop was able to run a lot of games before the screen went south (pending repairs) Was running Oblivion and CoD2 on it but I mainly just use it to play guildwars. I cant remember if i tried to run CoD4 on it

LOL I want it, though the battery is dead and the case is a bit deteriorated, and isn't very powerful but I love it, it cost me none so I should be happy anyway...

Anyway I doubt you can get much stuff on it: 2 GB RAM, DVD Multi Drive, screen, a keyboard with the ESC key missing, a worn touchpad, dead battery, the Hard disk was missing... and considering if they will be compatible with your laptop...

It's not my case, nor either I bought it nor I will use it for gaming. For gaming I have my desktop PC. I was only testing its GPU to make sure it's fine...

Mine ran even Crysis demo, though a crappy frame rate and some rendering glitches on it, but AOE3 FC2 Battlefield 2, Cod4 MW, NFS MW, ran fine on low-medium settings. And never overheated.

It should be fine derek12 ati tool is very very demanding it will heat up even cards with much better cooling tbh, and is often buggy too with some it was with my x1900xt used to crash instantly. I think its just a case of low end graphics struggling with very demanding software,And laptop cooling is never going to do it justice just hasnt got the space or airflow. Just run some normal games with low to medium settings and see how it preforms, You cant really ask for much more. I have 2 dualcore laptops both with independand graphics ati4530 and they do a decent job if i dont bump everything up stupidly, But i dont really use them for gaming, just internet and occasional movies.

Bad Drivers can somtimes cause artifacts,

The kind of games for laptops are games like world of warcraft, sims , Rollercoaster tycoon, monopoly tycoon etc.

Games like crysis are just too FPS hungry really to have a decent game.

I managed to play tomb raider underworld ok on mine just as a test didnt really try any others i guess the technology is getting better.

I just dont belive in gaming laptops lol its just wrong, If you are a hardcore gamer you build a propper gaming rig.

Many thanks :), I now understand that properly, I stopped struggling the GPU I even disabled Aero...

Yeah crysis frame rate was 0.5 - 1 FPS at low settings totally unplayable :laugh: besides some graphics glitches like the sky turning solid blue...
However AOE3, Warrock, nfs mw were playable at low quality. Just Cause works fine on laptop but artifacted on desktop (crazy shadows) :confused:
I am not a hardcore gamer... yet, even my desktop comp isn't as powerful as yours it. Until recently, I was playing with the IGP now I reusing my geforce 9500GT and currently the only game I play regularly is Warrock...
Thanks :)
