    alright
    um
    I did a retest last night and today
    What happened was strange
    Ok so when I don't have my laptop plugged in just the CPU fan spins, then the laptop just turns off
    When I pulled it in today it was just the CPU fan just spinning right then what happened after I just shut it down and restarted?
    Not only did the GPU fan start up automatically'
    The graphics card heat up
    along with the heatsink]
    In the MXM Master slot
    This also happened last night as well
    When plugged in the GPU would heat up, and the fan would spin automatically
    I held it in a way where pressing FN+1 was impossible

    I'm not a expert but that GPU looks unhealthy. Very easy fix put a new GPU inside

    Corruption in the bios screen is usually a pretty terminal sign for the GPU. You can try seeing if there is something up with the display cable say if the corruption changes when moving the display but otherwise it's the GPU.

    Is this GPU not fixable? I'll get some pics but it doesn't seem like there is any frontal damage but there may be something blown on the back.

    The card can boot into Windows and display text but it's artifacty everywhere else.

    The main GPU looks fine but there seems to be something that's morphed I wonder if it's replaceable.
    The card displays things and functions but it's defective.

    What exactly looks morphed? Can you take a picture of the GPU itself?

    The GPU is most likely irreparable. For the heck of it you could try heating it up in the oven and see if helps in any way (although I would recommend against it!).

    My tech guy hasn't sent the picture to me yet so I'm not so sure.
    But it looks like something on the back is morphed.
    The frontal part of the GPU looks fine, the die looks good.

    Unless the thing causing the artifacts is something inside the GPU die.

    Out of curiousity though with what you have seen so far what could be causing the GPU issue.

    Would it be the die, memory, or something else on the card?
    Is that something else replacable?
