    The photo's a bit unclear, but... Is the darkness under the lifted contacts, some sort of scorch-mark / burnt area?

    Yikes.

    If those are DisplayPort pins, chances are they are for the external ePort dock DisplayPort connectors, so it won't make a difference if you are not using that capability. That's assuming that there is no other damage. The only way to find out is to try using it...

    I think that you will want to fully remove the damaged connectors, if you don't there's a chance that they could be touching each other after you insert the card and cause some kind of short.

    Actually, I suppose there's an off chance that if there is unidentified damage, using the attempting to use card could cause some kind of damage to your motherboard. Careful.

    Glad you took a photo before you inserted it into the system. You should definitely get your money back if it does not work to your satisfaction.

    The soldermask discoloration (blue -> orange-brown) would also indicate some sort of localized thermal event having happened there, so... It's iffy, at best.

    That sometimes happens with my M4800 / m5100 and my TV. What i've noticed is that it helps if i turn the TV on, before plugging the HDMI cable into the laptop.

    Can you try DisplayPort or VGA as well?

    I had trouble with the FirePro to show only pixel blocks on external monitors. That could be partly solved by installing older FirePro and Intel drivers for Windows 8.1 and block newer drivers from Windows Update which would always overwrite older drivers.

    I ended up changing to nvidia - luckily a warranty exchange.

    I have tried as your instruction, but it did not work. I don't know what wrong with firepro m6100, when i uninstall Firepro m6100 and used only intel HD4600, the connection with external monitor is work perfectly
