Inspiron 8100 Video Question

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I have an Inspiron 8100 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (64meg) video
card.  Last night the video started acting flaky (distorted / random
lines in the video display, etc.).  I've narrowed the problem down to a
bad video card and plan on replacing the card myself.

I've saw a new 7500 ATI 64meg Mobility Radeon card on EBay for $80.  The
description states it is a new card for an Inspiron 5100. My question is
- will the ATI card for a 5100 fit into a 8100??

BTW, if anyone has another source of video cards for the 8100 besides
EBay let me know.

Thanks in advance,
