    Thanks, it may seem like that...

    I have input the new RAM, and I've ran some tests with good results.

    1) no more screen tearing when playing games (this used to happen with my old RAM installed)
    2) I have not had any crashes(yet).

    If it was RAM the whole time, that'd be very unfortunate... But I suppose sh*t happens.

    1) Very odd, ram usually has no impact on this. G-sync now enabled?
    2) Always good.

    Yesterday my p650rp6 graphics card seams to have died (1060). After a reboot (because the laptop display stayed Grey again (backlight on, no picture, old problem for more than a year, open and close mostly did the trick) I rebooted... Splash screen showed, dots rotated.. Next screen (black before windows login) showed some white dots on the bottom, jumping crazy.. Windows login shows for 10 seconds, I can type my password. Than it freezes the screen. Laptop is working in the background but screen is frozen. Updated the Nvidia drivers to 430.86 a week ago. After the freeze problem I went into safe mode, everything works.. New drivers didn't do the trick. A normal driver update did the same failure, a clean update after ddu let's the notebook freeze on driver update directly. Bios reset didn't work, hardreset after unplugging the battery didn't too. Seems like the graphics card died and I have expansive trash now. Any ideas? Any hope a professional repair could be economically reasonable in a range of 300euros? I'm rly angry. Most expansive notebook I had, died fastest of all after 3 years.. So sad. Hope you guys have any ideas

    If it's the Nvidia chip that has died then a repair would involve a BGA replacement of the chip.

    This means replacing the whole motherboard platine with processor and graphic chip and video ram for about.. 600euros? Or do they just replace the graphic chip? Can you say what this would cost?

    The GPU and CPU are soldered so the obvious answer is replace the board that has those chips on it. A more specialised repair shop could replace the chip for most likely less.

    Cost is going to depend on where you are and who you ask.

    Look around for electronic repair shops and see what they say.
