Please do do you have the fix tutorial with pictures as mentioned for this problem that you can send to me. I want to have a go and fix it myself. Thanks for your help.

I recently acquired a dv6700. At first I was disappointed it had the intel gpu. Until I started reading all the trouble the nVidia had.
The one issue I did have was the all too common bent/broken power connector. Was glad to discover HP realized this was a problem so they made it a separate board. Upon further inspection HP decided to save $ on connectors and soldered the cables to the usb/power board. This lame move by HP required mobo to be removed. So I thought while I was at it might as well dump the lame merom for a supported penryn and clean fan heatsink.
To my amazement the cpu seems to have been properly seated but the intel gpu looks as if it has never touched the pad and pad looks perfect and unused. IMHO I would say the heatpipe assy was a poor design.
I am almost tempted to shim the intel gpu even though they do not have the heat problem.

I read another post that he tried a penny. I was wanting to see if a penny is a good subsitute for the copper shim that you mentioned. I have tons of penny's that I could use and it definitely would be faster than ordering any online. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have had the same problem with my dv9500 and got it repaired twice..one I paid almost $400 for and the second time it was still under extended warranty. Now I am trying to fix it myself, but have a question: My motherboard has the two chips connected to the main heatsink, but then has another chip (marked "nvidia") connected to a second heatsink just below the fan. Which of these chips do I heat? and can I add the copper shim to either of these?

no way guys till this Nvidia chip not replaces with new unused chip your problem will never fix. this chip is have a certain age and after that it must be replaced.......no heat no reballin, no refurbished chip will help you
