Hello Tomshardware world!

I have a very sweet laptop with a very unsweet problem.

My graphics card blew out and I'm going to replace it myself but I don't know where to buy mobile graphics cards in the USA.

Sager 9262
NVIDIA GeForce Go 9800 GTX 512MB GDDR3 SLI (Up To 1GB Video Memory)

Can anyone please help me??? :cry:


Thanks in advance.

Thanks but no. I need to buy new, used and working (same card), or refurbished. Where can you buy video boards like that???!

That's a really good question. I've not had much experience with replacing mobile components. Did you check with the manufacturer?

At one point I found a few sites that would let you configure the parts you wanted with DIY OCZ laptops...you buy the shell and put in the parts. I can't find them right now, but something like that may have it.

2 things, why are you sure it's the video card at fault for whatever is happening? And 2, does the computer have a removable video card? Laptops are a different breed, you can't just swap out a video card in one like you can on a desktop for the most part.

Yes I've already opened it up, blew out the dust and removed the card. It's a stand alone card. Funny how you can't really find laptop parts around the country, when the tread is moving that way as a more popular way of computing. Where's Newegg.com on this one!
