These threads seems to be endless on this forum. HP told me they'd never heard of this issue with my computer. Laughable. I'm sure all the threads on here only represent a small fraction of all the people affected with this same exact problem (not to mention the other places with like discussions: youtube how to cook your gpu tutorials.., touchmartdev.com, etc).
I wonder if they investigate failures at all. The common thread seems to be plain. TX computer, Hot, Dead GPU. Fix people are using? Take apart, heat up graphics chip blowdryer or something, put back together and it works (for however long?...).
This is the 12th thread of the same issue. I've only sorted through 2 pages of the forum. This thread was found at the beginning of page 3.

I agree with ^^^^. I baked my motherboard and has been working well since, but I took further steps to prevent more overheatings -- posted on last pages of: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/TX-TM-Series-Notebook

I cannot agree with you more and can feel your pain. I just spent $272 to have my screen back cause it went black. It was returned with a new problem- a line down the right hand side- and HP is trying to charge me another $300 to fix THEIR problem. I have researched other products and understand that Samsung has an excellent reputation for customer service and better product reliability. I just purchased an ASUS desktop and what's great about it is that it makes all of its hardware so don't have to worry about faulty outsourced products like the ones HP is using
