Possible to replace nvidia nvs140m motherboard with intel graphics motherboard on a T61?

2009-03-12, 22:50 PM

Hi!

This is the third time I've got issues with my T61 during the past half year; garbled display, flickering, looping audio, BSODs, nothing on the screen, GPU overheating like crazy etc. I'm guessing it's the defective nvidia doing it.

 

Kinda tired of this. So I was wondering if it is possible to replace the nvidia motherboard with an intel one?

 

If it's possible, I'm considering calling support and let them replace it.

 

My model:

7664-18G

T7300(2GHz), 2GB RAM, 120GB 5400rpm HD, 14.1in 1440x900 LCD, 128MB nVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11agn, Bluetooth, Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, 4c Li-Ion, WinVista Business

You'll have to do it yourself, since support services are not allowed to alter the machine's original configuration.
