Does Lenovo G510 20238 and G510 80A8 compatibile switching motherboards?

 

Hi, my GPU of my laptop lenovo g510 20238 doesn't work any more resulut of that i get black screen, i decided to buy a motherboard online.
Lenovo g510 80A8 motherboard has a better graphic card and motherboad is a bit in different shape, so i am wondering if i could buy a motherboard of 80A8 and put in my laptop which is 20238 type
______________________________________________________________________
1.(20238) I found the same motherboard as i had with integrated GPU intel 4600 same as this in aliexpress  My motherboard type 20238
______________________________________________________________________
2. (80A8) I found a motherboad for g510 80A8 with a AMD GPU on it in aliexpress Lenovo G510 80A8 with AMD 


I like to buy that one with AMD graphic even thats in different shape, i think must be compatibile because all the ports and holes are in same position

Hi dlajqi96,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking the design of the board itself shows possible conflict fitting it on the casings. I would rather suggest sticking with compatible 20238 boards as listed on the hardware manual (page 85) if not the same Part number as your original board.

 

It is also expected not all features of the laptop would work similar to this case.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Here are boards numbers (page 85), there are many of them but are they for different models of g510?

Please do not start multiple posts on same issue as this only splinters the discussion. Instead, keep your current discussion updated with any additional information. Thanks !

There are several different models, each with different mount points, attached hardware and daughter boards.

The exact same motherboard as your current one is the best bet in this situation. Also - it may be more cost effective in the long run to have a service center look into the video issue - it may not be the motherboard causing it.
