I have an Aspire 5920G and i'm interested in the matter of this thread.
I've read on several forum that many people tried to upgrade their 5920G from the 8600m GT to the 9600m GT unsuccessfully, because, probably, also the latest bios of our motherboard doesn't support this video card.
Now, I ask you a question: since the Aspire 5930G is almost the same of the Aspire 5920G, might we use its bios on our laptop?
I noticed that the most important differences between the 2 laptops are limited to: the kind of processors (but i changed successfully my old T7300 with a quickier T9300 without any bad consequence, though i kept the same bios !!!) the Express Chipset Mobile Intel (but we have a dedicated video card so we should not mind it!!!!... i guess..), the Intel Wireless WiFi and the video card.
What's your opinion?
I've read that the code name of the 9600m video cards is NB9P, but are you sure that the video card you ordered is a GT and not a GS version?
Why is "GS" in the code name of your video card?
