No, you told the OP 'not to buy such a good laptop' when he is having problems because his laptop DOES NOT WORK.
It is not somewhat warm .. the laptop DOES NOT WORK.
I'd repeat the same phrase in capital letters but I doubt you'll catch the hint if you haven't already done so. His hardware doesn't work because nvidia fubared this generation of their laptop graphics chips and he has every right to complain and to warn others about the problem that he is having.
Ok, so maybe I got carried away. The title of this thread is 'Nvidia Sucks', just because this guys laptop 'happens' to not work, does not mean that Nvidia is to blame.
As the other guy said before, it is probably the manufacturer of that laptop.
Uh. Shit. Look dude. GET. IT. THROUGH. YOUR. HEAD. Nvidia IS to blame for this. Nvidia has taken responsibility for it. It IS a hardware issue. And Nvidia does SUCK when you've just paid $1000-1500 for a laptop and the friggin thing overheats and underperforms due to a BAD GPU.
Your options in this situation will be limited to whatever the manufacturer of the laptop decides. Most likely, it will work like this:
1. Your laptop HAS to fail. The GPU HAS to die before they will even consider a remedy.
2. Once your laptop has FAILED, you will be required to open an RMA ticket with that company and mail them your laptop....should be at the company's expense.
3. You will WAIT for a stupidly long amount of time befor eyou get your laptop back.
4. When you get your laptop back, it will have one of the following:
a. The same part number motherboard with another 8400/8600GS GPU.
b. A new part number mobo with a different Nvidia GPU.
**Note** This part may or may not be comparable in performance to what you had originally.
c. A new part number mobo with a new ATI GPU.
Unfortunately, the customer will suffer the most, as usual. There will be attitudes, bitching, moaning and groaning. And much of it will be understandable due to the customer bearing the brunt of the suck in this. But the reality is, unless someone spearheads a class action lawsuit about it, the options will remain slim. Even after a class action suit, the options will be slim. But perhaps a tad better.
Hopefully, Nvidia and her partners will surprise the hell out of everyone and simply give up a bunch of 8800GS like parts that perform better than the original parts and do not overheat.
But don't hold your breath.
