Hey zzpulp, thanks I have some weird issue going on with my e1705 (GPU = GO 7900gs)
Here's the deal:
I get black screen (still have back light and everything loaded fine (ie, window start up sound, etc..)). Then I tried CD flashing method (which I don't think it worked), but somehow I got the screen back for 1 day, then it went back to black screen again. I reseated vid card many times and still didn't work.
Fast forward to today. I got a hold of usb flash drive...
