Thanks bud, unfortunately it's toast. I have it sitting in original shipment box from Eurocom. It made it about 3 years so it definitely served me well. Unfortunately it was still a beast and played games great and I wish it was working so I could at least sell it. Luckily I found a decent deal on a BGA book and I really do love it's portability and weight. Unfortunately I find myself gaming very little on the road and would actually get by fine with a cheap $500 laptop. I might even look at a cheap-o Zen 2 APU based book with just enough power for some light gaming.
