Nvidia Defective GPU

Hey everyone, not used to posting on Computer forum. Normally I stick to trucks! Anyway I am the unproud owner of an HP Pavilion dv9339US. I'm sure that some of you may know what Nvidia has detected a problem with some late model GPUs that are failing fast at unusual rates. There is a very popular thread that can be found here: Business support forums - NVIDIA DEFECTIVE GPUs

There is a man by the name of Lance Waidzunas. He has put together a class action suit. If you are having the same problem please e-mail him at lswaidz@gmail.com It does not cost us anything to get into the lawsuit against them. I am trying to get as many people in this thing as possible. Thanks for reading!!!

The solder on them is cheap and it will break after extreme heat exposure after about a year. Causes video card and motherboard failure. A lot of ķepole are having this problem.

Thats the thing, HP is screwing us over. They won't fix it. They are fixing the ones with an AMD board but not Intel, and its making a lot of people mad. Their support treats people like s***. I got hung up on by an Executive Case Manager, and I was actually being nice for once. At first they told me it would be $400 to fix it, then they told me $611, and now they want $1000. They are not doing anything right.
