H.P./ Nvidia Settlement

I have just been notified of the Nvidia settlement regarding a laptop i have. The golden part of it is that the settlement is supposed to include REPACEMENT of the laptop. The settlement is because of a defective Nvidia Graphics Processor and/or Communications Chip.
I had a DV2100 laptop that had to be sent back to HP once for the wireless system crashing after it was out of warranty. Now the entire system is doing the same thing, not locateing a wireless signal, and when connected to a hard line will not aquire a I.P. address. Other computers companies are also haveing issues, but are only applying repair instead of replacement. From what i can find on the internet......this is because H.P. knew about the issue and tried to cover it up using a "bios" update, which made the systems overwork itself by running the fans faster, longer, and componets got hotter, thus the life of the computer went down.
Look at the website if you have a laptop with Nvidia equipment. Nvidiasettlement.com
Good luck to all,
