Geforce 8600 died

Postby wp_legend » Fri Feb 05, 2010 4:17 pm

I have an Amilo Xi2528 and I believe my geforce 8600 video card is on the fritz.

I believe it is the infamous GPU failure:

However as I bought my laptop over 2 years ago it is no longer under warranty. I know other manufactorers have extended their warranty. Has FS done the same thing?

kind regards,

Erik

You can ask them, but I doubt it :(

They have extended the warranty period, and my laptop is now under repair!

This is what I call good service from Fujitsu Siemens!
