I'm having quite a problem with my notebook: since a month or so, each time I try to use an application that relies a bit more heavily on the graphic card (like games or stuff like that) the Pc, freeze and go in to BSOD. The problem seems related to the Nvidia Geforce GTX 860M, since each time I disable the device the issues subside. They guys that look this up for me let me know that most of the time, this kind of trouble is related to an hardware problem, and since the graphic card is fully integrated in the motherboard, most probably, that would need to be replaced. I'm trying to figure it out which type of motherboard, I would need to buy, where should I get, and how much that could cost me (at least to try to decide if the cost is woth it, or it would be better to buy a new machine altogether.
The product specs are:
Lenovo Y50-70 Model Name 20378
Sadly OUT of warranty
Please let me know if anyone can help me
Thanks for you attention and time

Welcome to the Community Forums.
The hardware manual would have FRU list of systemboard for most Y50-70 (item 4page 90) but to get one specific to your machine, it would be best that you use the serial number here on the parts lookup page (you may privately message me the SN if needed).
From this article guide: How to lookup and purchase Accessories, Upgrades, and FRU/CRU Replacement Parts
EMEA parts sales desk telephone numbers by country
Italy +39 600 5599
Hope this helps answer your query.

This is similar to Medion and Lenovo encompass compared to ebay and shows big difference in pricing since they are OEM distributors. Buying from other resellers can work but always check for return options too.
