Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Graphics card has failed on Toshiba Qosmio G30-175

\015 I am seeking an economical solution to get this machine up and running again.It is possible to buy a whole new laptop with HDMI out for the same money quoted for a relacement motherboard.The machine goes through the boot up process as indicated by the illuminated symbols and the sounds that window make when logging on and off. However the screen is permanantly black through out the whole process. The screen works ok because the Qosmio player which runs independently of the processor displays the Qosmio logo momentarily just befor seeking a tv signal. It would be a shame to have to ditch this machine.I would be gratefull for any sugestions. Thanks\015

Answers :

The graphic card of qosmio g30 is built in to the board you need to change a mother board of your computer this is the dis advantage of g30 or you buy a pci videocard and plug in but the monitor of you laptop is become useless bcause you need to plug in a external monitor to the pci videocard..

A solution that worked for me with this exact model, follow steps below:
\015\0121. Wrap laptop in a towel (Lid closed)
\015\0122. Plug charger into laptop and turn on
\015\0123. Turn laptop on
\015\0124. Let the laptop overheat until it shuts itself down
\015\0125. Leave to cool for 5 mins (At this point it wont turn on anyway until at a acceptable temp)
\015\0126. Turn laptop on...Graphics card now working!!
\015\012I appreciate this is probably not the best solution and may not permanently fix it but so far so good for me. :-)
