I have a acer aspire laptop. It keeps shutting down to desktop or i get a grey screen sometimes blue. I paid for some computer company to look at it. They said the video card is going out. The problem is the video card and Motherboard are built with in each other so I would need both replaced. It would be very expensive for them to replace. ( meaning the labor Price ) I never thought to get a price for just the parts. I have been looking and cannot find anything I just want to make sure that this company is telling me the right thing. As I always say getting to much information when your dealing with computers is never enough in todays world. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. The model number is in the subject line.


Thanks,
Bigd7106

Probably looking at close to 200 for a new mb based on a quick ebay search.

A few questions

  • Does it only happen when in Windows, or will this happen if you leave the computer on in BIOS?
  • Is the laptop under warranty? Open up an RMA ticket if it is.

It should say something on boot to press some key to enter setup. Usually it's either F2 or Del, but it differs.

Boot into safe mode in Windows and let it run. And if it still fine, then reinstall the video card drivers. If that doesn't work, then we can say your GPU is toast. Though you should probably just save up your money for a new laptop if this is the case. You could find a board for cheaper, but you're also taking a larger risk.
