HP DV9657em Motherboard Replacment...
I am looking to replace the motherboard as it is only 18monthes old, and cost me £699...
I have been told that it could cost me as much as £400!? Could that be correct?
Does anybody know where I could get a replacment motherboard for a better price?
Also in additon to this, the GPU was a GeForce 8400M GS, would it be possible to get a 8600M GS or an Intel Processor instead of the AMD is came with?

I'm pretty sure you can substitute an Intel for the AMD.
There was a belief that this issue was limited to AMD motherboards. Not true. My DV8408 is Intel and very dead, also.
Is that $650.00 USD to repair? Yikes! That's brutal.
I'm furious over $400.00 USD............
