Well I have a new one coming in 5 to 7 days $99.00 for it.
If you look at the motherboard you will see I am R
Motherboard is a Aspire 8730/8730G/8730Z Series. Model M52255
And the Video card is a NVIDIA Geforce VG.9PG06.009
You are correct skip !!! Video card is removable via 6 screws. Remove top 4 first lift up on the heatsink and then the final two and wiggle card out. (easy to do)
I am looking for the same card for the 2 - 8730G's on my workbench and both cards have fried chips on them - they are actually burnt. One of them still works, but its probably only a matter of time before it fails also.
The reason i contact you is to find out where you sourced them as I can only find them from alibaba doing a google search and everything is over a $100 even from china.
