No problem man, I am trying to help, but if I am sarcastic, I do apologize. 8204 just did not succeed in my case, but I still am running TM803 right now which is doing great service to me.
Civbat: I have seen the HP nx9420 and ran the Tokamak there. Yes if I put my ear close to the keyboard I could hear some silent buzzing. It is the one equipped with X1600 with 256 dicrete memory. I was also running Tokamak on my old TM803 LCi equipped with Radeon 9000 and while running Tokamak I can hear the buzz. To be perfectly frank, in both cases it is audible only when looking for it particularly and when very close to the unit.
The nosie might be actually a driver/setting thing, because I was watching some video where EXACTLY the same effect like this noise was put in!! So it might be kind of filetr or something there! This is mystery so far, but the buzzing is natural up to certain point I would say. Tokamak is very demandive on graphic cards performance and some machines even freeze rahter then running it!
The LTN screen has the grey lines, but some of them reproduce them extremely visible, some of them the way you would never tell. The QDI screen is however without them. On the other hand, I have philips screen which failed the test but passed al lother NOKIA tests and has no grey lines whatsoever, so the gif is not a measure for me.
I have had four 8204 and all of them got stućj pixel and all three types of screens. As for me personally none of them was good.
But again - I am maybe too too picky, and when I look around, there is hardly a better screen with such resolution! On the other hand, the noise was extremely visible and annoying in my last notebook. The QDI screen reroduces it a veeeeeery contrast way. So basically you musta be lucky to get completely issue free unit, if possible so.
