  • News: Repair Hassles: Who Will Fix a Defective Graphics Card?

    I have a four-year-old 17-inch Sony VAIO laptop. Everything worked great until I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. The laptop crashed, and even after I formatted the drive and did a clean reinstall of Windows 7, it continued to crash. Whenever I got it to boot, it produced lines in any video that I ran. After doing some research, I found that Nvidia had listed my laptop's GeForce Go 8400 GT graphics card as defective, but my particular laptop model was not on the approved recall list. Nvidia could not help because of contract restrictions with Sony, and Sony said that it would repair only recalled models. Is there anything you can do to help?

    The past year has been an exciting time for mobile phones. We've seen an abundance of phones with dual-core processors, 4G connectivity, and bigger and better displays--all of which has led up to the first wave of 3D smartphones. Sprint has introduced the HTC EVO 3D, and LG has unveiled the Optimus 3D, which will be rebranded as the Thrill 4G on AT&T.
