    I bought this AW17 in non-working condition from a local seller on Craigslist. It had a shorted motherboard, so I ordered a refurbished one from Dell. As soon as I installed the new motherboard and put it back together, I noticed smoke coming from the bottom air holes. So I tested the new motherboard and seems the sound card is gone, and part of the GPU. It will turn on and load Windows. It won't run Unigine Valley with DirectX API, but it will run with OpenGL API.

    I'm not sure the full extent of the damage, but it's possible the GPU may work at less than 100% with a BIOS flash. I can send the motherboard back to Dell, but I'm checking if there is anyone interested in buying in it's current state. I'm looking to get back what I have in it which is $500 (minus shipping and PayPal fees). If there's no interest I'll send the motherboard back to Dell in a couple days.

    Hi, I would highly suggest you send the new board back if you have a chance of a return for a refund. and other than that I may be interested in its dead corpses state anyway with its original dead board installed and all that came with it. Please feel free to PM me if you're willing to post to Ireland. Thanks
