Tried it, but it didn't work. I even waited a full day... I guess I have to replace it, but I just don't know where in the world I could buy a replacement. It isn't integrated into the motherboard, I can take it out, but it's this little chip about 3x3 centimeters with nothing special about it at all! Every other video card I've seen looks fancy -__- I'm doomed :/
It's been a couple weeks now and I've grown increasingly frustrated with this issue. I need to replace my gpu for my laptop because it has failed. The problem is, I have NO CLUE what to look for online or in stores as far as what would be a suitable replacement. I have taken pictures of the hardware I suspect to be the gpu. This is so someone can maybe guide me to the proper search terms when I try to find a replacement.
Here is a picture of the hardware right side up facing forward:
Here is a picture of the hardware facing backwards (still right side up):
Here is a picture of the compartment that held the hardware above in place on the motherboard. The compartment has a locking mechanism for the hardware:
Here is a picture of the copper heat sink in place on the motherboard over top where the hardware (presumably the gpu) above would sit:
It would mean the world if someone could find me the answers I need. I just want to know what the hardware depicted in the first two pictures above is, and where to find a replacement, as the one above has failed....Thank you in advance!
