    Ok guys :(

    Well I saw a gx630 from ebay and it was a non working one, I bought it for $150 USD 4 weeks ago, I wanted the media bar, the dvd drive and perhaps the 9600gt mxm card to sell it later:rolleyes: ...

    It took 4 long weeks to arrive! but it arrived today, the pieces I wanted worked perfectly the mxm card was working (I tested it with my other gateway laptop) so I thought Ill list it this night at notebookreview and get some extra cash...

    Ok I was ubber happy it couldnt be better my fully modded almost PERFECT laptop WAS COMPLETE NOW!

    Then I was preparing the post to sell the 9600gt I went to dinner and suspended my laptop.

    When I got back I turned the laptop on and the devil shows his damned face... I got a black screen... I knew something was wrong with the video card.

    I quickly turned off my laptop and restarted it and it DIDNT POST! MY HD 3870 DIED :cry: I couldnt believe it! this was supposed to be a great day for me and turned out to be a sad day...

    I had to install my "new" 9600gt no extra money for me.

    The temps of the HD 3870 were more than PERFECT never went higher than 82C it used to iddle @ 42C. What was wrong? I dont know.

    But if you are trying to upgrade your msi with a mxm III card that is not a 9800gs or the 160m think it twice!.

    Pretty F%$#ed up isnt it?

    lmao:cry:

    If I was close by I would hug you...

    A video card dying will always ruin your day, or week, or month even.

    What are the chances eh?

    i doubt it was the oc that killed it since temps were good. I am sure it was bad when he got it but took a while before it really died. Now if my 4850 would to die, you can guarantee I would find someone to die with it, lol.:p

    Also, I don't think it's common for cards to just die without any signs at all. Usually people get some problems or issues before the card completely goes down.

    I CAPTAIN ALWAYS GOES DOWN WITH HIS....GPU...
    lol

    Its a shame, it was overclocked nicely (3870 that is) and it seemed like it would last a nice long time lol.

    Sorry to hear that had happened.
