My TravelMate 7730G - 844G25Mn seems to have trouble with the graphics card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series). When i turn on my machine the screen is red (and only half the vertical lines are lit) after a short while it turns back to the original blue Windows colour. Sometimes(but not every time) the screen goes black after a few minutes and i have to reboot to start over.
Im running Win 7 Ult. - 64bit. I installed a new SSD HD from Samsung a few years back and it was like getting a new machine, now - i'm afraid the graphics card is about to die...
I took it out and theres nothing to see in terms of brown(burnt) colour. I remodelled the thermopasta and mounted it again and now its running like normal. I don't know for how long thou.
Is it possible to replace the card and if so - where do i get it..?
It messures about 8x8 centimeters and on the little chip it says ATI
PS. im able to get to it without tearing the whole mashine apart - so i should think i could do it myself.
