    AJP Nvidia 6800go graphics card replacement

    Please help. I have a 5 year old AJP D900T laptop with a Nvidia 6800 go graphics card which has started to fail every now and then putting yellow/orange lines all over the screen.

    Can anyone tell me if i can purchase a replacement Nvidia card or an alternative??

    I'd think with the age of the laptop, it would be easier to replace TBH. Failing that, probably an external USB graphics card - Scan.co.uk: Scan USB2-VGAHRS USB 2.0 to VGA Adaptor for SVGA Monitor output (Max 6) supports up to 1920x1200

    EDIT
    Just realised - you didnt say if the problem was with using an external monitor, or the built in screen. If its the built in the the issue is more likely with the screen, rather than the graphics card in which case it will need replacing, if it is only with an external monitor the graphics card I linked to above should sort it.

    Thanks for the help Chris.
    I am using the laptop screen not a monitor and when i go into the device manager when the problem happens it says that the graphics card is not working as it has a problem which is why i assumed the graphics card to be the problem. I will look at an external option as suggested.
    By the way, what does TBH mean???

    No Problem - obviously with an external card, you can only run an external monitor - may be worth trying the laptop with a monitor first to verify it is the card.

    TBH means To Be Honest
