I got this e-mail today (I live in Florida, USA) and I want to know if anyone has heard of this.
----------------------
If you purchased certain models of notebook computers containing an NVIDIA graphics processing unit or media and communications processor, you could be entitled to benefits under a class action settlement.

This is a summary of the Full Notice. Click here to visit the settlement website to obtain the Full Notice. Do not reply to this email. Replies will not be read.

The United States District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division, authorized this Notice.
This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A settlement of a class action lawsuit (The NVIDIA GPU Litigation, Case No. 08-cv-04312-JW) relates to the NVIDIA chips inside certain Dell, Hewlett-Packard (“HP”), and Apple notebook computers. The lawsuit claims that NVIDIA sold defective Graphics Processing Units (“GPU”) and Media and Communications Processors (“MCP”) 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.

Who is Affected by this Class Action?

All United States residents who purchased in the United States a version of one of the Dell, HP or Apple notebook computer models listed in the Table of Class Computers containing an NVIDIA MCP or GPU. These individuals are referred to as “Class Members” in this Notice.

What Can You Get From the Proposed Settlement?

Class Members who file an approved claim will be entitled to:

1. Replacement of the NVIDIA graphics processing unit or media and communications processor, which are referred to in this Notice as the “chips” if you purchased a version of certain models of notebook computers manufactured by Dell, Inc. or Apple Inc. containing one of the NVIDIA chips; or

2. A Replacement notebook computer similar in kind and value if you purchased a version of certain models of notebook computers manufactured by HP containing one of the NVIDIA chips; or

3. Reimbursement of amounts paid for repairs related to problems with the NVIDIA chips. NVIDIA will fund $2 million from which reimbursements will be made. The amount paid may depend on the number of reimbursement claims received.

NVIDIA is providing these benefits to members of the class, and is funding the settlement. Dell, HP and Apple are not parties to this lawsuit.

How Do You Receive a Benefit?

You must first qualify for filing a claim, and then file an approved claim with supporting documentation during the Claim Period. To qualify for a replacement as described in numbers 1 and 2 above, your notebook computer must be one of the Dell, HP or Apple notebook computer models listed in the Table of Class Computers, contain an NVIDIA MCP or GPU, and be exhibiting one of the symptoms listed in the Table of Identified Symptoms. To qualify for a reimbursement as described in number 3 above, your notebook computer must be listed in the Table of Class Computers, contain an NVIDIA MCP or GPU, and must have been repaired because it was exhibiting one of the symptoms listed in the Table of Identified Symptoms. The Claim Period will begin after the Court grants final approval of the Settlement. Whether or not the Court has granted final approval, the Claim Period dates and further instructions for how to qualify and file a claim will be posted at the settlement website (www.NVIDIASettlement.com) and at the toll-free telephone support line (1-877-440-7557).

Register Your Email Address To Receive an Alert When the Claim Period Begins.

To receive an email alert when the Claim Period begins, between now and December 20, 2010, visit www.NVIDIASettlement.com and register your email address. If you previously received an emailed notice about this settlement, there is no need to register.

What Are Your Options?

If you are a Class Member and you don’t want to receive a replacement or reimbursement as described above and you don’t want to be legally bound by the settlement, you must exclude yourself by November 5, 2010, or you won’t be able to sue, or continue to sue, NVIDIA about the legal claims in this case. If you exclude yourself, you can’t receive a replacement or reimbursement under this settlement. If you remain a Class Member, you may object to the settlement by November 5, 2010. The Full Notice describes how to exclude yourself or object. The Court will hold a hearing in this case (The NVIDIA GPU Litigation, Case No. 08-cv-04312-JW) on December 20, 2010, to consider whether to approve the settlement and attorneys' fees and expenses in the amount of $13 million. You may appear at the hearing, but you don’t have to. For more details, call toll-free 1-877-440-7557, go to www.NVIDIASettlement.com, or write to NVIDIA GPU Litigation Settlement Administrator, P.O. Box 6177, Novato, CA 94948-6177.

This is only a summary of the Full Notice. Please visit www.NVIDIASettlement.com or call
1-877-440-7557 to obtain a copy of the Full Notice.

Hello,

Well, I have to say that this is the first I have heard of a settlement in this case.

The internet is a little scarce on information as well and the only site to be presenting this information is nvidiasettlement.com

Not sure about it but will look into it a little further.

Best wishes

Paul

Unfortunately I'm pretty sure its a scam. Sucks because I paid for HP to fix my laptop because it was barely out of the extended warranty, and then I signed up on the nvidiasettlement site as I thought I got the email because of using that email address when talking to HP. I did some whois lookups on the site and this is what I found

Also, the lawsuit in question was filed in 2008 or 2009 originally. That address shows up quite frequently in scam sites after looking around. If it was legit why would it be registered from some small island near Portugal...

I signed up for credit monitoring through USAA after reading this, just a for a little while in case of identity theft. I mean all they took from the signup is your name and address, but that might be enough.

I too received the email notification of this too. (Im thinking they may have pulled my email from a service ticket I opened a while back regarding my affected laptop with the wireless card not being detected issue)

Looks like it might be legit. Heres a c/p from another forum post

http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread ... p=32862113

"I just wanted to point out that the domain is registered for 5 years according to the whois lookup. [networksolutions.com]

Also, I just signed up for email notifications (what's the worst that could happen, more spam?), and the header was:

Quote :
from NVIDIA GPU Litigation Settlement Administrator <[email protected]>
reply-to [email protected]
to
date Tue, Sep 28, 2010 at 5:14 PM
subject NVIDIA GPU Litigation Email Registration Confirmation
mailed-by mps3.rosenthalco.com
So it was mailed by this company [rosenthalco.com], who are "class action settlement administrators."

I think we can safely say this is legitimate."

If you go to http://rosenthalco.com/ and click managed cases you'll find one of their settlments cases listed as Apple Ipod Settlement. So it looks legit.

I was a recipient for one class action case a long time ago (it had nothing to do with technology), but anywho, I was notified of the settllement and about 2 months later I got a check back (well a better term would be a refund). If all is good with this, you better believe Ill put a claim for my HP.

I emailed one of the lawyers on this case and got back this reply: "Notice of the settlement is real. Hope it helps you out." It doesn't confirm or deny the reality of website. I guess only time will tell, but I wanted everyone to be aware.

What I can verify is that the phone number didn't work.

I hope its real too. Though I blame HP. Everyone has some bad chips and such time to time, but HP never admitted it, and didn't inform anyone of the extended warranty because of the problems, I found out after I reformatted and was looking for the wireless card drivers, seeing if that was the issue. I was a few months out of the extended warranty and I had to pony up I think $130 to fix it. That should be criminal.

What I find odd about this is that the compensation is only $2,000,000.

Surely for all the defective models that are listed they would need more than that to settle claims?

There must be thousands upon thousands of laptops within those models listed so I wonder how much everyone will end up receiving?

Unless the amount of compensation is raised it won't be very much.
