Hey all,

I have a G73jh and the video card is dying. I am here to ask if the only replacement is the same card (60-ny8vg1000-c02)?

Or is there another card I can put in there?

Thanks

Limeyness

People have reportedly been able to upgrade to newer AMD cards, such as the 7970, but they aren't officially supported. If you can find a newer one with the standard MXM slot - of the beauty of open standards!!! :) - then you should be able to put it in, install (update) the drivers, and things should work. Sorry I'm too familiar with this situation, as I don't have the G73JH, and I am going on hearsay from the forums (and internet at large).

Thanks for the reply, I will take a look and see. I really dont want to spend $200 on the same card.

Fair enough, I'd say. :D Let me know if you find anything!
