    No, it does not. The rear panel is held down by two screws... it is the only way to get at some of the internals without taking the WHOLE laptop apart, and taking the whole thing apart would void...

    Try this driver. It is for the GTX 460 (desktop version) which is that same card as the 460M, just for desktops. I use this driver on my 460M and have had no problems.

    That isn't what I said at all. I said simply that Nvidia cards and Intel CPUs handle heavy loads better than AMD chipsets do. You do not need to get a new laptop, you could simply repaste the GPU or...

    ATI cards, like anything from AMD, run very hot. Hotter than most Nvidia cards and chipsets, and it has been that way for a long, long time. I would suggest repasting the GPU, or sending it into Asus...

    Tell tale sign of a failing HDD. Make sure you are able to keep the HDD up in order to copy any important files/documents before it fully dies.
