So over the last few weeks every once and a while my screen on my laptop would go black, then come back on and say "display driver nvlddmkm has stopped working and has successfully recovered" however a few days ago I got BSOD saying that said driver had stopped working and had not been able to be recovered, (im using an 8200 GS BTW) since then I have reformatted the hard drive updated the bios, and updated my video card drivers. However the blue screens seem to happen on about 75 percent of startups on my computer. Additionally the HP logo that is displayed on start up has thin blue lines through it, there is no other visible artifacting or graphics errors though, either in windows or in BIOS so i'm not sure what that is.
Additionally if my computer runs too long then i start to have problems connecting to the internet through wireless networks. Or connecting to them at all. If I just restart after losing connection I still have the problem, If I restart wait half an hour for it to cool then turn it back on it runs swimmingly.
Also and im nto sure if this is significant when openign up the case today i noticed that a thin clear plastic film was sitting on top of my processor, i didnt touch it but i also noticed that about a quarter of it had turned a dark opaque black that i could barely see through.
I'm guessing this has something to do with overheating, yet im concerned about how much of my laptop is now currently wrecked, and also what i can do to fix/minimize any more damage (as in clean out the laptop, or replace a certain part). any help would be great
