Together with the matching serial number for your 2007-77G machine, check your warranty on the www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?ln
Search for that FRU either on eBay or at the German Lapstore web site at www.lapstore.de/f.php/shop/lapstore/f/546/lang/x/k
Then replace the board yourself following the detailed procedure explained in the hardware maintenance manual which can be found via the www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/migr-39298.htm
Doing it yourself is much cheaper, and you learn a lot about your machine by doing it. Unfortunately, if your machine is still under warranty, this will completely void your existing warranty, so better think twice about it.
