    So you know how I hate my laptop, basically because it keeps failing. (My Inspiron 1520) I am betting this is why.

    Apparently G84 and G86s are all bad. If this is indeed true, it explains why I need to keep getting my motherboard replaced. The graphics chip resides on the motherboard, it is soldered. Nvidia drivers on my laptop definitely fail a lot, and the performance sucks in DWM. Now I'm stuck with a laptop that keeps failing (service call tomorrow) and is now proved to be faulty. This is great stuff.

    Try this:

    1. Put on a long sleeved baggy shirt.
    2. Hold your hands up in the air.
    3. Quickly slap them together as you shout Abracadabra!

    Let us know how it works out. Wink

    If it's been failing repeatedly, why didn't you call Dell support a long time ago?

    Hardware failures are never normal.  A machine with obvious hardware failures should be RMA'd.

    I did call them a long time ago. Last september I had my laptop completely replaced with another machine. Then in February I had my Motherboard replaced. Then in May I had my motherboard and memory replaced.
