Big surprise here. So my dell xps m1530 gpu overheated the other day and now I need to replace my motherboard. I know dell is offering people with my model a free year of warranty for this problem but that's only for systems bought before 2006 and unfortunately mine was not.

What I need to know now is what kind of motherboard I have. Here are my system specs:

Not sure if it is listed on here. If it is not is there a way I can find out? I've tried looking in the manual but doesn't seem to be listed.

How do you know the MB is bad if the GPU overheated? Also, I assume your warranty has expired? I don't think it is exactly easy to get a replacement motherboard/etc and replace it for a laptop.
