    Does anyone know any well regarded laptop board level repair services that accept laptops worldwide (in this case, from Spain)?

    I've got a Sager NP7850/Clevo N850HP which a non-functioning dGPU. Everything else about the laptop still works, but as soon as I try to enable the GTX 1060 from device manager, it bluescreens. I've contacted the seller, but it's out of warranty and it seems the repair would be a full board replacement (they estimated the cost would be anywhere from $200-1000).

    Given the gtx 1060 is still detected, I think the dGPU chip itself is fine, and maybe the VRM's fried or something. Anyone know any board level repair services they'd recommend?

    Thank you!

    Full story below:
    A few days ago while gaming the laptop suddenly shuts itself off. After rebooting it, all games would run in the Intel iGPU, upon forcing it to switch to the Nvdia dGPU, the system would freeze up and blue screen. I've tried reinstalling drivers and even reinstalled Windows 10. Any time I tried to utilize the Nvidia dGPU (running any benchmark, running MSI afterburner), the system would lock up and blue screen. Eventually device manager would show "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)" preventing the Nvidia dGPU from being used.

    The UK has a fair selection of places but sourcing the BGA could be tricky.
