    There is no way to change the graphics chip, so we can discard that as a possible idea.
    I was going to take a couple of snips of the inside of the laptop, but I found this page, which covers about everything we have discussed in this thread.

    Y560 overheating and shutting down - Lenovo Community

    Frankly, sorry pour cold water on the subject, but I am thinking that your only alternative is, as in my first post, use it as a typewriter and buy a better laptop.
    One thing I don't understand, however, is why you should get a temporary improvement and it then deteriorates again. The thermal paste would have been just a thin smear. Sorry if I talk down to you, but you did, of course, apply it between the CPU and its mounting base? My suspicions were aroused by your wording: " applied it to the gpu and processor "

    Other than these ideas, I have run out of any further suggestions - sorry.

    Yeah i watched a video on how to do it first and then only i applied it....
    And even i am wondering y would i get better results and then it deteriorates....
    Itz just frustrating....

    And i'm pretty sure i wont b able to buy a laptop as of now, caz just recently a month ago, i bought a new phone (where I live, there are no carrier contracts, so haf to pay the price upfront) and rite nw i will haf to use this laptop for atleast another 6 mnths...

    Edit: I did everything exactly like it was shown in that post...
    Its a shame my problem wasnt solved...
    Can windows 8 be a possible reason for it?
    considering lenovo discontinued support for windows 8 for z560?
    However that been said, i do know a frnd of mine whi has win 8 on a z560 and works perfectly, though the only diff bet his system and my system is that his is i5 and 1 gb graphics card, while mine is i3 and 512mb graphics card...

    That, I'm afraid, is a BIG difference.

    If you are able to change the thermal paste on the GPU in a laptop, you have enough skill to troubleshoot this yourself.
    Don't let him charge you for it.

    So had a chat with lenovo people...
    They seem to think that mayb the speakers are the ones causing the problems..
    D thing is i recently broke down the left hinge of the laptop and had given it for repairs..
    Also my speakers were fried since the past two months...
    So i askd them to replace the hinge and the speakers as well so that it would be done with..

    Wat i failed to mention here was that this problem started occuring as soon as i gt the laptop repaired and new hinges n speakers fit...
    Caz i thot there would b no connection between the two events..
    They said they would test it 2mrow after removing the speakers and see if the problem exists...
    If it exists then they said it would b a graphics chip problem which they are afraid has no solution...

    Can any1 tell me if such a problem can occur due to change in hardware?
    Or is it crazy to think my laptop is rejecting the new speakers like a bad organ transplant...
