HP Pavilion dv9000 NVIDIA Geforce Go 7600 - Fixed With Black Voodoo

09/05/2009 07:40 PM — Apparently the problem is with the solder joints. I called HP and determined even if they cover the damage, because I am past 24 months, the replacement motherboard would only be discounted $150 so the cost of HP repair would be $250. I googled the issue further and saw some advanced / expert users (a category I classify myself in) attempting some black voodoo. I also googled and found replacement motherboards that I could use myself for $185 - so I knew I could try some manual repair techniques myself.

All of a sudden, the game started getting incredibly slow. Everything was very laggy, but I noticed that the only thing having problems with the response time was the display / video output.
