The service tech came out to my house today to replace the(Sharp) LCD and the Radeon video card, when he called he said he would be at my house in less than an hour.
When he got here he asked what the screen was doing and I told him it had a bright white line on the top and bottom of the screen, he said this was normal for LCD's because it was where the backlight was located but he would replace it anyway. It only took him 20 minutes to replace the video card and LCD and I was back up and running. The first thing I tired was the Unreal Tournament 2004 demo, it looked beautiful I couldn't believe the graphics coming out of a laptop. I played at max details everything ran perfect no slowdown at all. The new Samsung screen looks great no dead pixels or bright lines to be found.
Overall I am very happy with my 8600 and happy with the service I have received.
Thanks for everybody's help and if you have any questions let me know
