(Believe it or not)... Put it in oven.
In my case computer (acer aspire 5520) turned off few seconds after i turned it on. Did some googleing and it turned out that these were the simptoms of gpu being passed away from this world Sad. But... I found some info about this and there it was - the solution is simple - putting motherboard into the oven for few minutes. I did some calculations, potentional success would save about 80 Ls.
And here i am. Using my notebook which was dead for a few months.

Lots of compaq notebooks had this problem with desoldering gpu becouse out of heat.

the problem with the oven, is that the components of the other side of the motherbord (faced down) could fall down when the motherboard is heated.

Its better to use a hot gun. But hell, if the oven can do the work, greate !

I have an IBM too and the only solution is to solder my GPU so it does not loosen.

Yes, there was something about soldering (i do not know this kind of english very well, so cannot tell you much in details).

There were comments that the effect will be temporary, for about a week, but this is allready second week and my acer is still working.

sleepsleep, i doubt if microwave will do the work. It is about the temperature in the oven, not the water molecules going crazy.

I'm pretty sure a microwave would induce a strong current in, and thus fry, anything electronic you put in it.

In fact, the effect are not permanent. The GPU will overheat again, and dissolder again.
It's a question of heat/gpu usage. More you use it, less time it will be soldered. And you can't keep it resoldering forever. It will overcook in the oven.

Next time, put some patatoes inside, and serve it with fresh cream. Laughing

After such thing is better to replace thermal paste. Arctic Silver or ceramic type,what's the best?
Also on some notebooks there is used some thermal pad.It is good but not best.If you replace thermal pad with thermal paste then will be a little gap between CPU-GPU and heatsink.Heat will not be dissipated by heatsink and problems are big.

In that case exist some copper sheets designed for that.
Also keep vent holes clean and clean heatsink from dust.
