Question about Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook
My Pc started to show colored dots during startup. Then it started to have slow prefonrmance. Today the computer self shutdown due high temperature. I ran Dell Systemdiagnostics and i had the following errors:
I googled those errors and i found on many forums that i had to replace the Video card. Is ther another way to solve this?
I have had a few Dell's through my shop with this problem. I have tried the recommended bios flash, and updated video drivers, with no success. Unfortunately, the only sure fix for this is to replace the video card. Now keep in mind, that this is a major undertaking, the video card is integrated into the motherboard. This is a job for an experienced components tech, and is usually cheaper to replace the motherboard. Most computer service shops won't even attempt it, and will tell you motherboard replacement right off the bat.
