Need tech specs/info on system configuartion and hardware placement of IQ770.

I've never been inside one of these IQ770 all-in-ones from HP and the info from HP I could find is limited.  A client has some video issues and I'd like to pull the video card.  Has anyone done this or know if it is an expansion or part of the mobo?  I'd like to get a manual that lists the placement of the card and tells if it is separate from mobo.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

Vertical lines??

The IQ770 has a bespoke Asus board with integrated graphics however there is an option for a second video out which is a replaceable Go 7600 - it is only replaceable by HP though as again it was specifically designed for the Touch Smart :(

The vertical lines issue is a known problem with the integrated card on the Asus board.

I've not seen a service manual for these outside of HP but the Drive upgrade document (see: Parts Replacement) on the HP site gives a clue on opening the case.
 
This site is also pretty good

Hi vsllc,

According to the specs here, it looks like the video card is not a separate piece of hardware. http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/hp-touchsmart-iq770/4507-3118_7-32305738.html 

Hope this helps!

Yeah.  Vertical lines appearing ever so often.  Is this an ongoing issue or something that has been fixed with a software/driver/bios upgrade?  Is this a precursor to other issues or an isolated issue with the board?

I'll check out the links.

Out of warranty.  HP is an option.  For the DIY, I found this link in the forums.  

http://www.touchsmartcommunity.com/forum/thread/164/Touch-Smart-Verticle-Lines-Screen-Problem/?page=2&highlight=vertical+lines

All repair options (outside of warranty work) look to be expensive.

Thanks for the help.  I'm going to continue this in the TouchScreen forums.
