Nvidia usually makes just the GPU (Basically the brain) of your video card.
It is likely your card was made by a 3rd party that designs the board around the GPU. there are several out there (PNY, ASUS, BFG, EVGA and several others) If you want to return it for repair you need to first find out the company that manufactured YOUR particular board.

However I think a better solution for you might be an authorized repair facility. Here in the US I would recommend Best buy or Circuit city etc.....

Or a self repair (If you feel up to the task) you can purchase an "Aftermarket" GPU cooler that you can find online or in specialty computer shops (Here in Milwaukee, I like Milwaukee PC for this specialty parts) Then you can remove the factory cooler from your card and replace it with the aftermarket one. (When you purchase the aftermarket cooler they should include a sheet with detailed directions on how to perform the replacement) If it does not, or if after reading the directions you feel hestant at all please feel free to post a new question here and we will try to help you through it.

THANKS
Dave

Is it under warranty? If you still have the packaging or warranty info, you can look for a support number there. Nvidia does not usually provide direct support for their products, since they make the chipset but do not make the graphics cards themselves.

If it's not under warranty, it's fairly easy to replace the fan yourself. Replacement fans can be found at http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=576&name=VGA-Cooling You only need to unplug the old fan, undo any screws or clips holding it in, put the new fan in its place, and plug it in.

UPGRADE of CPU and graphics card in HP Pavillion 9000?


The HP Pavilion dv97072ea Notebook PC?

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3308945&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Nope.
Doesn't use the MXM technology, with using a separate graphics ->adapter card.
The graphics chipset (GPU) is soldered directly to the motherboard. (GPU on a small circuit board, that is)
It's Integrated Graphics,

http://www.ascendtech.us/hp-434659-001-dv9000-laptop-motherboard_i_mbhp434659001lm.aspx

Scroll the page down to the larger photos.

The Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 mobile graphics chipset, is the darker OD green circuit board. (Generally speaking)
In the views you are looking at the TOP of the motherboard.

You see the white rectangular Processor socket, with the square hole in the middle.
Next to it is a green square circuit board, and next to that is the darker, Olive Drab green square circuit board, that is the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 graphics chipset.
{Circuit board and GPU, is referred to now as the graphics chipset.
That is why I stated - Generally speaking, above }

[GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

You can see the Nvidia GeForce GO7600T chipset, and circuit board, more clearly here,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-new-nVIDIA-GeForce-GF-GO7600T-N-B1-GPU-BGA-IC-Chipset-with-Balls-/190698089722?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c667decfa

It's mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain the Ball Grid Array surface mount, simply;

In the photo of the chipset in the Ebay link above, you are looking at a green square circuit board, with an Nvidia 7600 GO, mobile graphics chipset, in the middle. You are looking at a TOP view.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_Go_7_.28Go_7xxx.29_series

The GPU ->Nvidia GeForce GO 7600, is mounted to the green circuit board.
The bottom of the green circuit board has Solder Balls.

The Solder Balls take the place of Contact Pins.
(Contact pins, such as on the bottom of an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket)

On the motherboard are matching Copper Pads.
(The copper pads are coated with a gold plating)

The Nvidia graphics chipset is set down on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up on the matching Copper Pads.
Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This action makes the solder balls melt, and solders the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 to the copper pads.
(Which in turn solders it to the motherboard)

This demonstration of a BGA Rework Station, shows you more about the above technique,

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Go down towards the bottom of the page, and click on the Red -
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Just for edification;
If it indeed did use the MXM technology, and a graphics adapter card for a laptop, that is based on the Nvidia GeForce GO7600 GPU, it would look like this, and plug into an interface, (Connector) on the motherboard,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/nVIDIA-GeForce-Go7600-Go7600-N-A2-G73M-DD2-256MB-MXM-II-VGA-Card-35G1P5310-10-/330758557353?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4d02bf0ea9

(There is also a model with 128MB of graphics memory, besides the 256MB model shown above)

More in a Comment. Don't give up on increasing graphics 'power', just yet............................

DISTORTED VIDEO IQ700


This is a typical issue with this computer due to overheating. Its a design fault that HP is not willing to acknowledge. You can replace the graphics card with an original NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600 if you can find one. Unfortunately, the overheating problem will still be there, and your new card may not last long. Alternatively you can disconnect the graphics card, and connect the monitor to the slot where the card was. The 3D graphics capability will no longer be there. But for everyday use it may be fine.

Which is better????


This is really a user preference choice. Both ATI and Nvidia are the top video card manufacturers. I have used and liked both. 1 of my machines has an ATI and one has a comparable Nvidia card. Both are equal in performance and stability.

Choosing a card depends on what you need. If you want a gaming card I'd say Nvidia Gforce.

Hope this helps

Distorted graphics


The 7600 gt can work on an agp 4x motherboard only in a 4x bus speed, if your just using the cd driver that comes with the video card try updating it by downloading the latest driver in www.nvidia.com, first uninstall the driver then restart the computer then install the latest driver you downloaded
