My dell xps m1330 came with a nvidia geforce 8400m gs, can i upgrade

i would like to replace the motherboard for my dell xps m1330. Has the nvidia gpu ( 8400 m) been resolved on any replacement board? No one seems to be willing to give me a straight answer, including dell. I could reball or rework the chip on the baord that I have, but will eventually be in the same boat. Thanking you in advance for your help.

    No, usually it isn't upgradeable. Even if it was, the C2D would bottleneck it.
  2. Eventhough you can, I would still not recommend it. Get a new laptop man :). Only I recommend to people who has laptop that has the feature of replaceable graphics.
  3. Thanks for the help. Found a replacement mobo with intel graphics. Going to givr that a shot. With all the problems with the 8400 GPU, you would think there would be a class action law suit out there. I guess this chip fails across a lot of platforms. Thanks again for the help.
