Has any 8790 owners with a dying or dead motherboard ever attempted to open the unit up and replace with a new motherboard? I've just ordered a new 8790 (D87P) motherboard as the screen even seconds after powering from cold is filled with random color horizontal/vertial snowy effect lines. Sager confirmed this as probable artifacting. Am wondering how easy a job this will be or whether to return it to Sager and pay for them to do the new motherboard installation.
