See this old post for history.
I finally got Dell to replace the GPU today. I was mistaken about them replacing absolutely everything except the nVidia GPU. Apparently the heat sinks and fans were not replaced either. I found out that there is one heatsink and fan for the CPU and another for the GPU. Well, of course they replaced the GPU and heatsink and fan for the CPU but for some reason DID NOT replace the GPU fan. My guess is that should definitely be replaced and with talking to the tech on the phone it sounded like they would replace it. Of course they only sent the CPU fan for replacement.
So, this computer is basically completely replaced except for the GPU FAN. We’ll see how long this goes before the next blue screen.
