Suggestion: Component exchange - Need/Have- Need e1705 graphics card
So many Nvidia laptop e1705 problems. So we know now the GeForce 7900 & 7800s are faulty. And that a replacement is an ATI CG 108.
How to get one? My computer is 3 1/2 years old -- out of warranty but new enough to last another 2-3 years. Hey, the Toshiba I'm typing on now is 6 1/2 years old and perfectly fine.
I'm not paying $200. for a 30 day warranty refurb lousy 128MB ATI when the whole computer isn't worth $300.
Isn't there ANYONE out there who has an e1705 waiting for the e-waste pile? That did not have a video problem? I bet the Dell e-waste depot has one. OR 3,000!!
I'd also like a bluetooth component, without having to pay full retail.
Oh yeah other suggestion: It is not worth my time to set up another userid/password to sign into Idea exchange, and then be in a different area. So make idea exchange part of the forum and eliminate the sign-on bs.
