There has been a class action lawsuit filed because of this. Search the web for information.
I have a Dell XPS M1330 which is affected with a bad graphics card, that under the NVIDIA class action lawsuit you can claim a replacement for
Thing is I am not in the US, and my Dell is outside the warranty period. Under the waranty period my entire motherboard and LCD were replaced due to the same graphic card problem, now I have had the same problem and had to pack away my laptop just when it was 2 yrs old.
I want to know is there any recourse available for affected customers outside of the US? To me its very blatant that Dell will replace the faulty card for US customers free of charge, while leaving the non-US customers with the same problem with a hefty charge.
Model: XPS M1330, Code Q510957
