Delighter,

 

Only certain models are covered, and I don't believe the R61 models are included.

 

Please see my related PM.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

I  had the same garbled display problem last week. I called the customer service and mentioned "garbled display in BIOS" and got free replacement of the motherboard even I was out of warranty. Now I have received my laptop and it works as fine as before. So glad! I think lenovo has admitted this GPU problem and provides free repair to some type of machines.

Hi Mark,

 

I have same problem with my T61 7662 CTO. I think the nvs 140m GPU is dead now. Mine is out of warranty .  Can you give us a instruction of how to deal this issue, espcially for people don't have the warranty?

 

Thanks,

 

Ron

Hi

 

I have the same problem with my T61 (6459-CTO). It has the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140 GPU

After few minutes starting, it had garbled display. then I got blue screen and the T61 auto restarted.

And then things were messed up on the screen.




I bought my T61 on 11/2007. It's out of warranty :(

Currently I don't know how to explain this problem in the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140 to the tech guy at Lenovo Service Center to get the fix or the replacement for this

 

Could you pls advise

Thank you

I called the customer service and they told me I have to pay for repair, because it's out of warranty.

The point is how much you will have to pay to get this problem fixed permanent

 

I'm afraid the price will be high and I'm not sure this problem can be fixed permanent  :(

i guess you can get the laptop fixed under the post warranty warranty (Thinkplus), which should be more cost effective than using an aftermarket service or getting the board from places like ebay and doing it yourself. You can get the post warranty thinkplus by calling Lenovo customer support in Vietnam.
