After 5-30 minutes the screen breaks up in flickering (or just black) and system freezes. I need to turn off computer. After restart the error occurs again quickly.
This occurs regardless if I boot to windows or into a linux bootable dvd.
Remote desktop connection to the computer and it works fine for days .
Thus I believe it is the intel 4000 graphics that has some hardware failure which is not invoked upon remote desktop.
I wonder if this is a known issue?
I wonder if only a replacement of the intel 4000 graphics will fix this (this probably means replacing the main board entirely?)
If it is in any way likely that it is _only_ because maybe thermal paste between cooler and cpu/graphics is slipping?

Intel I7 + Intel HD 4000
No additional graphics
