Actually "Katie" is from the family guy movie and it's a joke between the three of us, Don Rico is another friend "involved" in this project
Anyway, thanks for the support guys. The original plan was to take the heatsink off the X600 and put it on the 6800Go so that it'd fit inside the laptop. The cards are the same size, and although the X600 has a smaller cooling solution, it should be adequate for a stock 6800Go and even some mild overclocking. The 2.13Ghz pin-mod is stable as can be, even undervolted to 1.244v, so I'm happy there
. On a side note, holy shit does the cooling solution suck on the D810, friggen CPU loads at 60C at 1.244v
, I might try a different approach on the AS5 application when I open the laptop again.
Anyway, the Dell service manual shows the M70 as being identical to the D810, even the same cooling solution on the Quadro as the X600, so I think we're gold in the cooling department. To explain further, here is the exact problem. I hit the power button, a quick, very distorted image of the Dell load screen appears at the BOTTOM of the screen, then a split second later the another very distorted image appears, resembling the load screen for windows, then the screen goes black. Now, has anyone ever flashed a D810 to an M70? I'd have to FUBAR my friend's laptop because there's no confirmation on this
. I definitely think it's a BIOS issue and the card not being accepted. I dont think modding the card to a Quadro would help any, as it seems to be Windows based rather than flashing the card, and the current problem exists in the BIOS recognizing and accepting the hardware. Anyway, I'll look more into this. I think a 2.13GHz CPU and a 6800Go on a 1280x800 would friggen own, not to mention the 4 hrs.+ life he gets gaming with the extra modular bay battery. Anyway, any information here is greatly appreciated. I'll look more into this as I'm flashing and overclocking my brandy new 7800Go
