I have here an Acer Aspire 5630 WLMi series notebook that has a borked gfx. Symptoms are corrupting display after it has been on for a few minutes. So far tested with linux and windows live cds and the problem is exactly the same as when in the installed windows. Also happens at the bios screen. Also tried with an external monitor and the symptoms reproduce on the external display.
So looks like it needs a new mainboard.
Mainboard is an HBLA50 LA6 with onboard Nvidia 7300 go gfx, part number MBAXY02005.
I thought EMPR did Acer but I must have mistaken that for ASUS which they do(plus toshy and hp).
So anyone got some contacts for where I could source a new or refurbished mobo in Australia?
It is out of warranty by about 3 months otherwise it would be a warranty return. :-(
Specs are half decent and it has not had a lot of use (keyboard even looks brand new still).
