Graphics replace

Postby Shadowcek » Fri Jun 18, 2010 1:47 pm

Hey everyone, my friends laptop graphics ceased to work. He has got the XI 2528 with 8600 graphics inside. I read throught the net its a common issue but I was unable to get the replacement graphics card with the exception of radeons HD2300/HD2400 on ebay with acceptable prize. The thing is, will I be able to replace 8600 with HD 2400? If so, will I need to flash laptops bios to some other? Thx a lot in advance and have a nice day ppl

The Xi 2528 uses MXM, so a replacement card has to be a MXM card, too. But unfortunately it's not that easy, there are different MXM types, the cooling system is not standardized and there may be problems with the BIOS.
