256MB ATI Mobility� Radeon® X1800 help


Recommended Posts

I called alienware and they told me my motherboard is a uniwell p531a. and that it is a m5550. I asked why the difference in number from my bios and said was upgraded to m5550.

Can a ATI Mobility Radeon X1800 256 MB work in my supposed m5550 laptop?

Hi, I got a Uniwil p531n (the n means it had an nvidia 7600Go the a at the end means it was shipped with an ati video card)

And I successfully upgraded to a X1800!!! (although it has some veeery weird pixel bugs (moving red/green/blue pixels on the screen, could be do to a memory failure of the card))

But one thing though: the notebook gets EXTREMELY hot! and crashes afert extensive 3D games playing..... the heating pipeline was never supposed to cool down an core2duo 2.0GHz and an X1800!!!!!
