HP Pavilion dv7 1150us - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - graphics controller is dead, apparently. Anyone know what motherboard is used in this model? And is it possible to get WIITHOUT having to go through HP directly? Thanks in advance
Other than going directly to HP, I think your only real option would be to try and find the same/similar model refurbished or offlease, preferably stripped down. Which you can then use your old units parts in. I saw the DV7s in similar configurations being sold used for around $600-$700 on eBay. There are many Laptop outlets though, you'll have to google them.
