Exacerbating matters, NVIDIA is trying to avoid a recall by having its OEM (“Original Equipment Manufacturer”) partners recommend consumers download and install a “BIOS update,” which turns on the computer’s fan more frequently or continuously. This is a grossly inadequate “remedy,” as it results in additional manifest defects, including, without limitation, further degraded battery life, system performance and increased noise in the Class Computers. Worse, this “remedy” fails to solve the actual problem. Instead, this measure only ensures that the Class Computers will fail after the OEM’s express warranty period expires, potentially leaving consumers with a defective computer and no immediate recourse. Finally, even after using this purported “update,” video and system performance is still degraded due to unacceptably high heat and part failures.
