    I'm not sure if anyone else has a lead, but I'm having trouble even finding a place to get a loose GPU from in the first place. If I could find someone to sell it to me, I'd love to try slapping a...

    I haven't tried checking the dump file yet, so I'll do that tonight. I'll do the same with event viewer.

    So I've yet to upgrade the firmware on my SSD, because per OCZ, you can't upgrade the firmware via their utility on a primary drive. Once I'm able to do this using another PC, I'll report back...

    Oops... Just saw a pic of the naked G74 mobo in another thread and it looks as though the G74 doesn't use an MXM slot. So basically, even if you could find a loose GPU chip for sale on the secondary...

    From what I'm reading, it's not easy to get the GPU chips to do something like this. That is assuming you obtain one that is compatible with your motherboard, BIOS, etc.
