I have and Acer e5-774G-754Y it has an i7 7500u cpu,8gb of ddr4 ram and here is the problem an nvidia gtx 950m its a pretty good gpu dont get me wrong but before a year or so i noticed the laptop took longer to respond from sleep mode and after that the gpu just went wild spinning the fan doing absolutely nothing. Task mngr says its a system interupts program and it took 99% cpu load too, after few minutes it frezees and then I have to restart it. I have managed to install windows 10 a few times to try to fix the problem but nothing, i have to force disable the gpu in the device mngr so I can use the laptop normally. I think windows update fucked my gpu somehow so i tried later versions but not that much late tho, I also tried putting the whole mobo into the oven and that didnt help aswell so im looking for some suggestions to try anything that could work. (I have a multimeter but not so much exp with it,myb the vram has gone bad and I can check it somehow ?)
