No, I`m sorry. John also tried the 7900, for some reason it won`t work.

Hello Mr. Duck :)

The 1559 is a Type I notebook, which is supposed to handle Type II as well, but I`ve never seen the cavity or card. So I don`t know if the card would pass. Compatibility hasn`t been confirmed either. If you are serious about this, I think you should open her up and measure her up first. Check your power supply, too to see how many watts she can deliver.

Keep in mind you`re voiding your warranty, though...

My warranty is already voided, I'll take some pics of the cavity and check the PSU.

Thanks :P

edit : here's the pics :

I cannot find information about the PSU, all I know is that my AC adaptator can hold 65W... but, the "7" geforce did not consume less current than the "6" series ?

edit 2 : I made a "simualtion" (with... ms paint :) ) to compare the 2 cards, and It seems that the 7900gs will fit :P

You must check room available. Example:

pict0004hy4.jpg

Can the card pass beneath the fan assemble to the left? How much room is there to the memory banks> Or can the card pass over it? Basically how much room is there before the bigger card hits anything. You`ll have to check this for each side.

The fan shown, is this the only one in the system? If so, I don`t think it will handle the 7900GS. Furthermore, the power supply won`t be able to handle it for sure. The 7900GS consumes about the same as a 6800, at leat 10W more than the 6600.

There are 2 fans, the one on the pics is the GPU fan, the CPU fan is hidden. I've just finished a call of duty 2 session, and the gpu was not very hot when I opened the laptop.

edit : no, there is not enough space on the left side for the 7900gs...

I was afraid you might say that. I`m trying to mod an Asus card to turn it into a Type II compatible card. Not sure if it`l work, but if it does that might be something for you...

The heatsink has to be addapted like with the x1800, the other changes are not nessecary.

Yeah, delays and more delays. I currently keep the very few cards I have for those with broken vid cards.

New to the site....

Will this work in my AW 51m 5700? If not, any idea where I can get one that will work? My card is shot and I'm mechanically inclined enough to mod a heatsink if necessary. Thanks for your help!

Just some quick question, Can I trade my 7600 512mb with 7900 GS from my Asus Z84J? Pictures is available in this MXM cards thread. :)

I don't know if the 7900GS fits though.. just interested for future upgrade if I''ll do intensive 3D graphic or gaming.. right now I don't play games much.
