Well well well. I have caught up on this thread after a few months away. I seem to be the first lucky owner of a completely dead notebook. I went to Brazil for 6 weeks and left my laptop with a friend. He didn't touch it while I was gone. When I returned a couple of weeks ago I pushed the power button and nothing happened. I called support and they said maybe the battery had caused a short. Ridiculous. However, I got it RMAed in about a week's time. Nothing huge. No charge on my part. They didn't wipe my drive which I'm happy about. I have no idea what happened, but the little paper insert I received back with my notebook had mechanical failure and motherboard checked. If this happens to you don't worry. Just send it back and wait a week. It sucked but warranties are handy.
The video card in the zv6000 is the Radeon Xpress 200m, which has 128 MB of dedicated memory and can share up to 128 MB of system memory (this sharing is called Hypermemory). Since most graphics cards are designed to fit into a notebook, the zv6000's card should not be upgradeable.
