does this work with the P-7805u i stopped trying to look for the 7811 after i found out that the P-7805u has a 1920*1200 hdmi compliant resolution, also anyone know where to find singular part for laptops, namely a video card, trying to special order one 280m from nvidia is turning out to be a failure :<

I don't see why not, have you tried eBay or are you looking for new?

I do not recommend getting a 1920x1200 screen, at least not if you want to game with your p-7805u. While these machines are very powerful as far as laptops go, they are not powerful enough to push 1920x1200 resolutions in really any newer games, so getting that resolution will mean you will have to lower settings and/or run non-native resolution (which looks fuggly).

On a 17 inch screen I don't think most people can tell the difference in game between 1920x1200, so don't bother, at least IMO.

I ordered a P-7805u from bestbuy.com, not even realizing there was a 1920x1200 resolution floating around out there. I *luckily* got one with this resolution, and I gotta say it plays games superbly at max res (using Windows 7 build 7077 btw and Nvidia Prerelease drivers). I've played Crysis, Burnout: Paradise, and World of Warcraft at very high or max settings without issue.

Yeah, I'm sure it would still be awesome if it was 1440x900, but I just wanted to let people know IT CAN HANDLE IT.

Unfortunately, it can NOT handle my Firewire audio interface, which is the primary reason I bought it...I get 2-3 second dropouts in audio quite a bit, even with a "bare bones" XP install (I dual-boot).

Does anyone know if there is any way to unlock/update the Phoenix SecureCore BIOS that is on this thing?
