How about the 3dmark06, if you want to compare your scores to others. BTW, welcome to the Forums.

I've also had the plug head short out, so I needed to cut it, reconnect it, and re-make the black plastic casing out of hot glue. It works quite well, actually, but it took a lot of work (still better than paying >$100 for a new one).
Thanks for the reply, sorry it took so long to respond but the system wouldn't take power right after I posted here. I ordered a new power adapter for $16 from amazon. Not sure if I am allowed to post the link here. It works for now, but it is still kind of loose. I'll have to try the loop of wire trick.

Sorry to hear about the power adapter problem. I think laptops should start using macbook type power connectors that's magnetic. That would be pretty awesome

Thanks Martee, I'm downloading it now and will post the score when I get a chance to run it.

Alright, ran the 3dmark06 and got a score of 10299.

http://3dmark.com/3dm06/15515500

I could've sworn the P-7805U came with factory 4Gb (2x 2Gb) DDR3 @ 1066Mhz. So why is mine showing as 2x 2Gb DDR3 @ 533Mhz? Did my laptop get robbed at Best Buy before I bought it? Or is there something wrong?

Another question. What is the benefit of running my 2 320Gb HDD's in RAID0 format as opposed to having them as 2 separate drives? If I decide to set them up as RAID0, will I need to clear everything off of my second HDD in order to set it up that way? Or can I do it without losing anything saved on that drive?

Disregard the RAID0 question(s). Found the answer in the forums lol.

my 6860 gets a score of 9250 but it has an upgraded cpu and the GPU is overclocked for reference to your score.

I actually just replaced my Asus G51VX-RX05 (That thing was an oven waiting to catch on fire...) for one of the 7805u's with the 1920x1200 screen and 1gb vid ram cards..

Question I need a decent not too expensive back pack for it. My targus bag I had for my Asus is super super snug with the gateway.

hello i have a question if anybody can help me out. i killed my gpu on my p-6860fx by overclocking it i was getting the blue screen everytime windows started so i formatted and i get a code 43 on my 8800 gts so i need to change my motherboard but i cant find a 6860 motherboard but there are some p-7811 motherboards out there. so my question is can i put a 7811 motherboard on this 6860 laptop i have been looking at the pictures and they look identical sot it seems that it will fit in this chasis apparently i can use my intel t9500 since its the same socket but it will run at 800 mhz fsb instead of the 1066 i would only have to buy the 1066 memory so will it fit? and power, monitor cables wil work with this one also the battery and stuff? thank you for reading this .

I think a T9500 should work and you will have to get new ram. As for if it will fit the chassis I do not know. I hope you get everything figured out man

From all the angles I have look externally at the 78xx and the 68xx series laptops are the same. all the connections are in exactly the same place. As for the inside I could not tell you. There may be a difference in the screw placements. I am unsure o that. Best thing you could do is to google motherboards for both models and see if the screw placements are the same.
