why don't you find the cost of the average fully working second hand model, and then subtract the cost of the GPU replacement. parts and service.
#2
yh but the cost varies on who you use if you use a local bloke about £50 acer however about £200

then take that average, if you know its £50 at cheapest, why not get it repaired and sell it working?

:?

no money left to get it repaired as just went out and brought a new one so was just going to flog this one off cheap but possibly keep the hard drive for a caddy

worth about £50 if u r lucky.

no-one is gonna take your word that its might just be a gpu failure so they are basically taking a risk, even at £50

Where did you get it from? is it not still under warrenty? i had a laptop from PCWorld that was faulty but out of warrenty. I spoke nicely to the manager and he got them to do a repair out of good will. 3 weeks down the line they couldnt fix it and ended up giving me a like for like replacement.
If you could get an independant report done (most PC repair shops will give you a no obligation quote for repair) id be interested if you were listing on a FS thread in 7 days ;-)

if you can manage all that, why not just fit a new cheap gpu?

sorry some of these acers come with seperate gpu cards and with you saying it needed the gpu replacing i assumed it to be one, if its not one of them forget it, its a mainboard replacement.
