I have an HP Pavilion DV6. It is 5 years old with an SSD drive and extra memory. Recently, I noted squiggly light blue lines (like a bar code) on pictures while browsing the internet. I had someone apply artic silver under the CPU about 2 months ago. Could the silver be wearing out that quickly or is this getting to be a graphics card problem? I know how to apply the silver, but I don't think the blanket method is safe and I don't know how to solder whatever part it could be. Any ideas? Thanks.
I just tried it and I didn't see it on the TV, nor did it happen again lately as I was surfing on the TV or off (It's pretty random). I have a feeling it may be the monitor.
:( Is this a common thing for laptops to do after being this old?
