MIne has the same issue. Am I out of luck or should I call and bitch until I get a resolution?



If you're asking my opinion, I'd install a new board and continue to use it. The free repairs ended well over a year ago, so you're not likely to get anything except high blood pressure if you let it get you upset.

The most reliable option to fix them is a board with Intel graphics. They are rare for the 15.4" versions but I can get them. For nVidia boards you'd need one from august 2008 or later, which are extremely rare. If you're looking for boards on websites like ebay, be careful, most have been reflowed or baked (improperly repaired) and will fail again. I've been scammed myself.

Re: T61 Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M.. garbled display problem!

Do you know a part number for a post-July 2008 T61p motherboard?  I actually just want to get the motherboard first and then build around that.  My R61 with 570fx just died and I would like at least a 1600x1050 resolution screen.  I want to stick with an R61/T61 because of the PCMCIA slot, and I can't find any T400/T500 15.4" laptops at this resolution or higher than a PCMCIA slot.  That would be great as I'd like to get ATI graphics, but I can't find one.

 

Thanks for any help!

The August 2008 boards have the same part number as all the rest, the only way to be sure you're getting one is to get it with the lower chassis of the 08/08 system. The only difference is that the board has an updated (improved) nVidia chip.

 

Send me a list of the parts you need in a PM and I'll see what I can do

I need some information about your system. I'll reply to the PM you sent me and hopefully find you a board.

Looks like I have the failing GPU problem.  Slow death to a black screen.  

 

This is my product ID:7662CTO.

 

Let me know if you can get me the parts to repair and how much it will cost.

 

Louis

Hi Louis, I believe there is a board availabe for your system, if you'll send me your serial and date code in a private message I'll see what I can do. The model of your cpu chip would be helpful too if you know it.

 

Please don't post your serial in the public forum.
