Laptop models equipped with an Nvidia or ATI graphics chip are likely to overheat and shutdown sooner or later.

Will this PC fix bring my laptop back to life?

These fixes have successfully repaired  a wide range of laptop models from a variety of manufacturers, but will they fix your particular laptop?

To answer this question, you need to check what happens when you try to turn on your laptop (see The symptoms you first need to check).

I understand from people who took the time to send me their feedback that these computer fixes have worked for the following laptop models and manufacturers.
