I didn't know where to put this (first post here), but I opted for this forum since I suspect something is wrong with the graphics card on the laptop(?). So, here's the case:
I have a one-year-old Packard Bell laptop that has a cracked screen. I planned to use it as a media player connected to my 32'' LCD via an HDMI cable. However, it's pretty useless since the video is choppy and sometimes slow.
I have tried just about everything: Re-installed Windows (even tried Linux), installed the latest driver, cleaned up the fan for dust. Same problem persists. The only thing I havent done is to check the motherboard where the graphics output is, since it is very very hard to take off the black thingy under the laptop.
According to Speedfan, GPU runs at about 55c and has a hot icon to it. Can this be a problem?
These are the specs:
AMD E-300 processor 1.3 GHz;
AMD Radeon™ HD 6310M;
4 GB RAM
Help would be very much appreciated
