It was working fine and had been for a couple of hours, at the time I was only browsing the web.
Then suddenly (all at once) I got blue stripes across the LCD (a WUXGA one (1920x1200)) across the whole screen about every 3rd pixel row. The screen the stopped updating (no mouse movement).hard power off, upon turning on, I could no longer get anything on screen (No BIOS. Nothing. Though HDD LED was flashing).
I have tried using an external screen, the screen received something (because it came out of sleep), but beyond that nothing on either screen.
Assuming this to be a GPU issue Where can I get a replacement Quadro FX 3500m (or suitable replacement) for this laptop?
Dell doesn't have any, and googling around can't find any either.
