    Contact Customer Care and let them know and they will return the LCD and then you can order the MB.

    Customer Care from who?
    I bought the LCD on Ebay. Ditto for the MB.

    Did you make sure that the extended warranty wasn't still in effect? After the nVidia issues came to light, Dell extended the warranty on the component.

    After you replace the board, make sure the BIOS is up to date.

    Yes, it has been out of warranty for over a year.

    Too bad. I may have been lucky. The laptop I dealt only had a one year warranty, which had expired, but the program that Dell instituted for the issue was still in effect. The system was a few years old, and we had the replacement done a few months ago I thought.

    Got the replacement motherboard in today and it's fine now.
    Thanks for all the help.

    Remember to check the bios revision, that may help keep it from happening in the future. Though it may also reduce the life of the fan, as it is on more.
