horzaborza Posted April 20, 2009 Report Share Posted April 20, 2009 Hello everybody, and thank you to exist! I have a friend with an amilo M3438G. It's Magic Christian, (not the bulgarian one), and he is french, like me. So i'll call him MC. MC graphic card is almost dead : He can go to windows, and do small things, but if he use 2D accelerator, some artefacts appear, and with 3D, the blue screen of death appears. Then, MC bought a HD3650 256Mo mxm card at the MXM Upgrade begium site (delivery in a week :) ). Already succefully tested by Kris Verbeeck on this notebook, MC (and I) were dreaming on a perfect installation. So, we follow the installation description step by step, using dremel for the first and (i guess) not last time. The time to boot came, and we push the buton... 1 The screen stay all black (no bios nor logo) 2 No screen's backlight 3 Hdd activity, and windows boot up sound ! 3 MC Cryes (he has sold his son to buy this card, wherease he just has begun to bring back money!) We tryed without any card : no screen, no hdd, no windows sound, BUT, backlight is on! We put the old mxm card back, and it works like before. We tried to change the motherboard bios 1.06c=> 1.1, but it failed. I did a bios reset too, same conclusion. MC is a good guy, so, i mailed Kris Verbeeck to ask for his holy help. But, like with god, more than one week later, no answer comes... Today is a new day, and it's monday. So, i try a new idea : plug the DVI card into an external monitor, and play with fn+switch buton. No answer, but somes new questions. The new "symptomes" are : 1- the notebook's monitor's backlight turn on! Nothing to read or understang, but the backlight isn't uniform. 2- No video signal received by the external monitor. So, the new question is now : "hu?" I don't have more ideas, so, for MC, please help me! I seriously guess i could send the card back to MXM upgrade, but i don't know if MC'son can. Sorry for my bad english, feel free to ask me texplain another way. Thank you. MC and I Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
