Same Problem (with temporary fix)
I have the same problem with my 1.5 year old x1000. Two days ago the screen started flickering and then the laptop would freeze, after which I couldn't get the bios to even post. Of course if I applied pressure to the keyboard (esp '6','7',and 'Y' keys) then the bios would post and everything would work until removed the pressure. So just like Teckng, I put a pad (piece of white eraser) in between the metal shield and the vid card along the right side of the card. I also had to put a strip of foil in between the eraser and the shield so that the eraser didn't push through the holes in the shield. If anyone wants pics of what I did, just email me and I'll send them over with instructions.
This seems to be working just fine, although I'm sure it is a temporary solution, I've got my fingers crossed until a new vid card comes from Impact Computers
. I ordered the radeon 7500 from them for only $99. I'm hoping that the 7500 won't heat up and warp like the overclocked 9200. Do you think I should put the pad in with the new vid card as a preventative measure?
