I dropped my laptop the other day and It started a line down my screen then i disassembled it and the whole right side is white and black lines, gone.

I got one of these to replace the 1440x900 screen, it's a LG and very nice screen.

Damn it Gateway! Stop putting slow quads in there and give us one with a P9700 2.8GHz or, at the least, a P8800 2.66GHz.

...and a GTX260m


**Now I love the refurbed FX 7805u I got for $750. But if ASUS can sell laptops with a P8700 that OCs, a GTX260m, and 6GB RAM for under $1200 and you are selling $1600+ laptops with worse specs... then, Gateway, you're so out of the running for having THE bang-4-the-buck gaming laptop when that is what the FX has been and is supposed to be. I'm just sayin...**

Indeed, I could not get over 570 Core, and once doing that, i reached 630+

I think it is possibly that there is not enough power through the battery.

How is everyone, new to the forum. I wanted to pose a question. I currently own one of these laptops, Standard widescreen version 64 bit Vista etc. I have the 8800GTS gpu.

My question is, is there anywhere I can purchase the "PM45 Chipset with NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTS with 1024MB of GDDR3" so I can get more performance out of it. Or If I could just swap GPUs.

Also, I know I should search but this thread is over 100 pages and it would take forever to lool through. I wanted to ask what would be a good choice for a processor upgrade on these machines...mine is 1.66 GHZ, and to me I think it could use more. Thanks!

I don't know that you could upgrade the GPU as it probably isn't worth what it would cost to do if you could. I think the best Price/performance CPU is the T8300 2.4GHz/3MB L2 or if you're willing to spend ~$330 the T9300 2.5/6MB L2. The extreme CPUs aren't worth it in this case.
