Technical Issues / Re: X1000 video fix needed
« on: February 20, 2007, 09:55:07 AM »
hello,
I've bought a sony SZ330P some time ago and I left the x1000 aside. But today I decided to fix the video problem and I did it successfully.

Basically you have to but a washer in the the video card support A and B.
In the video card Shield C put two washers behind the thermal pad and the shield.





Put some cooling past like artic silver 7 in the GPU.
Thigh all the screws and you're done.

Hello, i think i've got a quick and easy (but temporary) solution. It's a very rudimentary solution, has we portuguese say: "desenrrasca" ;) (not perfect but works)

I've cuted a small piece of rubber and taped it.
Placed it under the video card GPU.
Taped it to something o avoid it to move around.

What you need:


The rubber with tape (isolating):


The final result, notice that i've placed the rubber UNDER the video card... i tryed placing above (between the heatsheld and the video card, but the result was worse) :


Sorry about my english, its a little bit rusty.

Hope it helps.

Now i can move around my x1000 without getting the black screen...

Once again its a temporaty solution and it doesnt fixes 100% the problem, but it's a lot better.

I'm looking for that same sort of work around.  Mine is around 2 years old and just started having the issue.  If anyone could post a good work-around(if I don't beat you to it), it would be much appreciated.


Same problem here, mine did that just today, the video card didnt woke up, ive done the 6-7-y thing at it's back on. Mine its 2yo... Somebody got a fix?
