I have this old notebook sitting around and i think the gpu on it is toast, I cant seem to find a replacement for it. I think it was a Alienware M7700 D9T nVidia 256mb Video Card 33-D90T3-05X but are there any others that i could get instead or does it have to be this exact one.
It would have to be the exact replacement chip. It isn't worth the trouble try to replace such a complex electrical component, you could easily rip off a contact and completely destroy the computer. I would recommend trying to contact Alienware and see if they will replace it, if they want to charge, it will probably be worth it in my opinion.
If I where to send it over to them it would probably cost me more than the computers worth! See as I found a similar card and they are still over 200$! Which is crazy. Looks like I might just have to salvage it oh well.
