Answers :

Yes, this is a very common problem with the M1330 due to a flaw in the\015\012Nvidea graphics processor chip. It also affects laptops from several\015\012other manufacturers, including some models of Apple laptops. The chip\015\012overheats and fails. Dell has supposedly extended warranty coverage by\015\012an extra year for this particular problem only. My daughter's M1330 was\015\012repaired under warranty for this issue. See here for more information:\015\012http://en.community.dell.com/blogs/direct2dell/archive/2008/09/12/nvidia-gpu-update-limited-warranty-enhancement-details.aspx
I agree with what CSX321 says,i have just had mine repaired by Dell.They fitted a new motherboard. I phoned them up told them the issue with the graphics,mentioned about the extended warrantyand they sent a courier to collect it,did the repairs then returned it within 8 days.It seems it is a common problem and that is why they extended the warranty.I believethe graphics chip manufacturer may be footing the bill.It cost me nothing for the repair.
