I think you are saying reinstalling the drivers. The hardware I doubt you physically took out of the system.
Can you tell us what the make and model of the system is if it is a branded system. If it is a custom built then we would need to know the motherboard make and model. If you don't know then we can use a program to egt the information.

Well it seems the nobilis laptops were made by several different manufacturers so they are not making it easy.
Try this:

Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...



DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"
