Hate to be the harbinger of bad news, but the GPU is built into the mobo, so the only way to replace it is to replace the mobo. If you have an extended warranty, call support and go through the motions to get them to take it in for repair. How did it go out, do you know? I ask, because I have the exact same video card in my notebook and I live in fear of mine going out all the time. I have an extended warranty (accidental damage type) but it takes them about a month to fix it, or replace it, and get it back to you.

Sorry to hear that your GPU has died. You might want to try the System Restore, back to factory settings it might work and I think they will ask that you do that before they will take it back. Problem with HP is that they have not provided a new video driver in nine months for our notebooks. I have written HP; called, wrote emails to Mr. Hurd (and exec with HP) and done everything but back flips to get them to update the driver to no avail. I wish you the best of luck and really hope that you bought an extended warrranty... it's a wise thing to do with notebooks, for just this reason.

yeah. you have onboard grafix, so there is no way to change your GPU, unless you replace the motherboard. (even then u are stuck with the same as you just had.

very misleading... but i guess it would have its uses...

I just wish MXM cards would all have a standard size and power usage instead of all the bloody types they have.

have a read of the article. 8600 and 8600 SLi. Not very good GPU right there. i mean its middle of the range. but not for enthusiasts.

With upgrades possible, it may be ok. but currently its not an option for laptop gamers. And with internal gaming laptop technology and GPU performance, i dont see it helping.

Maybe if someone had an older laptop.
