I have a HP omen desktop that is now out of warranty. However, I am starting to get graphical artifacts while playing games and a whirring coming sound from the tower. Can I get a quote on how much it would cost for diagnosis and repair considering it is out of warranty? I tried messaging customer support but they told me to just post a query here.
Unfortunately, HP doesn't do repairs on their products after the warranty period.
It sounds to me like you may have a failing video card. You can test this by removing the card and connecting your monitor to the Integrated Graphics on the back of the computer. Here is a video that should help you remove the video card:
It is not the exact same model, but it is in the 870 series.
If you have further questions, please let me know.
