    Did you try to disassemble the laptop and check the chip itself?

    I have only disassemled it for the purpose of repasting cpu and gpu a couple of times, upgrading ram and ssd:s and of course when I upgraded the gpu but as I understand it it is located near the gpu.

    Would my brothers laptop be worht saving
    MSI GT70 0NC damaged Vid Card and i suspect a bad SSD which leaves me with a 500 GB HD
    Cant get to factory default no idea what my brother did to it, and currently installing drivers to see how it runs.
    Was wondering if it be better to just buy a new one or try to upgrade this one.

    I asked this same thing in clevo, but I bought a damaged 970m MSI ms-1w0j1, the seller refuses to admit fault and as a result I need the resistor value for this resistor.

    It doesn't make anything actually not work, instead it just causes odd stability issues.

    Many thanks to whomever will be kind enough to let me know.

    Could be SSD, or SSD board. It's acceptable if you are able to confirm on the root cause of failure and source the part, otherwise it won't be worth it to repair it. On the other hand, you can replace the 2.5" HDD with a 2.5" SSD (with limitation of 300MB/s).

    Hi i just put a 970m 6gb in my 1762 barebone. I updated the bios to 71x with no issues from 30J. the card is detected and windows installed drivers, boots fine etc.

    Only issue I got is i cant install the nvidia drivers as a compatible device is not found, I have tried the links for drivers on the 1st post but none work.

    Do I need a modded vbios or update my EC?
