M5500i-R3 Problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, gonna buy an alienware m5500i-r3, the seller says that the laptop powers up sometimes but then shuts down randomly and then someimes it doesn't power up at all. He also says that there are lines on the screen but he says this just needs a new graphics card.

Any ideas what the fault could be?

Pretty sure I told you, its not worth the trouble. Even if its the graphic card, it would be pain the arse to get a graphic card for cheap (they are not cheap for laptops), and it may not even be a graphic card issue.
I went into your profile, and notice you are drolling over the m5500i laptop, just get something that works, like msi gx or asus g series. Both are cheap too.
