GPU overheated on a dell

  1. Big surprise there. So my dell xps m1530 gpu overheated the other day and now I need to replace my motherboard. I know dell is offering people with my model a free year of warranty for this problem but that's only for systems bought before 2006 and unfortunately mine was not.

    What I need to know now is what kind of motherboard I have. Here are my system specs:

    Not sure if it is listed on here. If it is not is there a way I can find out? I've tried looking in the manual but doesn't seem to be listed.

    There is a sticker on the board that tells you what it is... nearly in dead center, and again on the edge of most XPS boards...
    If you order the refurbished board from Dell, you will not need that detail... just your service tag number. But it is not cheap... the last one we purchased was $139 including shipping.

    That sounds like laptop system specs, is that right?

    I've looked at the mobo can couldn't find anything that can tell me what kind it is. My dell doesn't have any stickers on it that could indicate the motherboard.

    My warranty has expired so purchasing a motherboard from dell is quite expensive. $499 for service and the board itself iirc and that's just not worth it. I'm looking at ebay for some refurbished ones and that's why I need to know which one I have.
