Hi guys, I have the above mentioned laptop and the problem is that once in a while, the display becomes distorted. The display behaves like what happened when you distorted the controls of an analogue monitor beyond the resolution that it was capable of displaying. I believe the problem is hardware related, but before I can commit myself to opening the laptop, I need to be sure of what am looking for. It also gets very hot on the top right corner between the keyboard and the display bezel. Don't know what to make of it. Thanks.
