I thing my gpu is fried.

2018-03-24, 18:05 PM

My laptop work fine when used on battery but when it is plugged in sometimes it just freezes randomly and when a game is started and laptop is plugged in it hangs. I showed my laptop to a local repair shop and he said to replace the motherboard with a new one. Is that really necessary or it can be solved..

What model laptop is this? Do you have all your Critical and Recommended Lenovo updates - including the most recent BIOS update?

When a local repair shop tells you you need a new motherboard, that usually means that they have no idea what the problem is, but they don't want to say that.
