HP lists 24 notebooks with messed up Nvidia graphics

Written by Fudzilla staff

Knew about the issue since November


As expected,
other vendors are following Dell's lead and finally acknowledging that Nvidia's mobile GPUs used in their machines are defective.

Today, it was HP's turn, the company listed a total 24 models from its Pavilion and Presario series which are potentially at risk. Like Dell, HP is also offering a software fix for the issue, which sounds like putting a band-aid on a gunshot wound. If the chip's packaging is faulty, it's unlikely a new BIOS will ever make things right. We suspect that a bios fix will slow the chip down and prevent it from overheating.

The symptoms are wide ranging, anything from not booting to no video on the LCD or output on VGA. You can find the complete list of affected models, as well as warranty terms, here.
