Are Graphics Cards Replaceable in Laptops?

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by davilama2682, Nov 23, 2019.

    Hi.
    I managed to overheat the graphics card on my laptop. Someone called me when I turned it on - and I forgot I left it on the bed. The system still works - it was a lower-end laptop when I purchased it. Already over 1 year old from time of purchase. Are graphic cards something that can be repaired/replaced on laptop? Or, laptops are usually integrated circuits - I should get whole new one? Thanks.

    If it was a lower-end laptop it likely has integrated graphics which is attached to the motherboard. You couldn't just replace the graphics card.

    In most cases, it isn't possible to upgrade a laptop's graphics card. ... The vast majority of laptops have integrated graphics, which means the GPU (graphics processing unit) is permanently attached to the motherboard, and not removable as it is in a desktop PC.

    It was advisable to indicate the model / brand of the laptop in order to answer you.
    And so, if the video card is integrated -> replace the processor
    If discrete -> replacing the motherboard or re-soldering the video chip (undesirable)
