What causes a GPU fault?

There are many contributing factors to this fault. The first is the use of lead-free solder. Much has been documented online about how lead-free alloys are not as durable as leaded solder. The APU is bonded to the motherboard by a BGA (Ball Grid Array) method, which is a grid of tiny solder connections. Over time the solder connection deteriorates through heat stress. Also, the motherboard slightly warps with use through the heating up and cooling down process and this can cause the solder connections to break.

You may also experience an overheating message or the laptop may turn on and operate normally for a short period of time before it fails. This can be due to the fact that as the laptop heats up the motherboard expands with the heat and then pulls the connections apart. The laptop may also freeze when this happens or show distorted graphics.

Poor ventilation can be another cause. Keeping the laptop in an enclosed area can restrict the airflow and cause it to overheat. We have seen before that just moving the laptop from a warm environment can allow the console to run like normal.
