THE DEADLINE TO RETURN ORIGINAL MALFUNCTIONING

NOTEBOOK COMPUTERS IS OVER. 

The deadline to return the original notebook computers was July 18, 2011. We are unable to accept computers sent after July 18, 2011 or provide any replacements for computers sent after that date.

The purpose of this website is to inform Settlement Class Members of the proposed settlement which may affect their rights, to provide information on important dates and deadlines, to collect email addresses for those Settlement Class Members wishing to be contacted with future updates, and to inform Settlement Class Members of the options available to them. You may be a Settlement Class Member if you are a United States resident who purchased for your own personal use and not for resale one of the computers listed in Section 7 of the Full Notice during the corresponding time period, which contained one of certain NVIDIA chips that were incorporated into some versions of those computers. A list of the models affected can be found here. You can also click here to see if your specific model is affected by this settlement.

Common Questions:


1. I have questions about the technical specifications or warranty on my replacement computer. Who can I ask?

Your replacement computer comes with a standard warranty. For further questions about the warranty or technical information, please click here(specs) or contact the manufacturer of your replacement system.


2. What should I do if my replacement computer is damaged by the carrier making the delivery?

You should check your computer immediately upon receipt, and, within 48 hours of receipt, you must notify the Settlement Administrator at 1-877-440-7557 of any damage to your computer. Packages that arrived damaged should also be noted at the time of receipt. To do so, any damage needs to be notated by the consignee at point of delivery and recorded by the delivery company (i.e. FedEx) using the scanner and on the delivery record were the consignee signs. If the laptop is damaged during shipping, the class member should call settlement administrator within 48 hours from the time of receipt to begin the resolution process.


Note: Damage in these scenarios refers to external damage, not to internal functionality of the computer. Any internal functionality issues must be addressed to the manufacturer.

The lawsuit alleged that some of NVIDIA Graphics Processing Units (“GPUs”) and Media and Communications Processors (“MCPs”) contained a defect that affected the performance of some of the notebook computers in which they were incorporated. NVIDIA denies all allegations of wrongdoing and has asserted many defenses. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.
