G580 totally dead

2021-04-26, 18:09 PM

Hi, I've got a g580 ideapad, which has a Intel i7 quad core (8 thread) cpu, which recently just quit... I was gonna scrap it, but see lots of replacement motherboards, my question is, can I upgrade at this time buying a new motherboard with Nvidia 635m GFX on board, a new i7 3632qm, new SSD drive, and SSD tray, put it all back in and have a still very good laptop for a decent price? I don't see why this wouldn't work, as all parts would be new? Oh, I was running 16gb ddr3, and would buy new ram as well, if required. Thanks for now, Doug

Hi Ginnz,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

 

You could, but it would probably be cheaper and easier/safer to just buy a new pre-built laptop.

 

Regards

Yeah.... I did a bunch of research... Board, cpu, ssd's still pretty cheap... Nuts an i7 3632qm at the end of the day... 635m GFX... So. I shopped, and think I'll get a new Asus zenbook duo 4k i9, with 32gb ram.... Upgrade proof for a while. Cpu, unlocked. Serious GFX card.... I can use that setup for a while. 😊 Prolly end up rebuilding the g580 and making a hackintosh outta it... I dunno. 🙂
