Intel 4000 graphics failure both windows and linux on thinkpad edge s430

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?
