Why would you want to do that?

The simplest way to make a machine overheat is to block the cooling fan.

Keeping it cool is usually the difficuly part.

On the D630 because of the nvidia chipset the machine will produce double images on the LCD -- I would like to get the graphics card hot enough for it to do that

I don't know what you've been smoking, but maybe if you do up a little more, you'll be able to see all the double images you want....

So you want to overheat the grphics card so it will produce double imagaes, which to most people would indicate a fault.

You do realise of course that if you do overheat the graphics card and manage to produce this double image you run the risk of destroying the graphics card altogether.

Electronics and heat just do not mix. That is why so much time and effort is expended on keeping them cool.

Regular Dell diagnostics do not duplicate the double image issue

Of course it wont. It is not what diagnostics are meant to do.

I dont know what you are trying to do but whatever it is you are going the wrong way about it. Ether the board is faulty or it isn't. Overheating the graphics card in order to produce a fault condition isn't going to prove anything.

So it would seem. Wants to force a failure in the expectation of getting a new laptop instead of simply applying the BIOS update as instructed.

All the more likely when you read this paragraph:

Note: if you are already experiencing video-related issues like the bullet points above, updating the BIOS will not correct them

Whereas updating the BIOS before the fault occures will prevent it.

Well, if you block the fans there is a fighting chance you will kill off the CPU as well (which is not usually supplied with the motherboard).

Whether you regard this as a good or bad thing is a matter of conjecture.

some other bloke...
