Hi warrior_hamed,

We do not recommend to our customer to just replace the graphics card chip on the motherboard because when it was not done properly it may cause further damage on the laptop. Also, it may cause electrical short circuit that may cause fire. That is also the reason the technician are unable to replace just the chip.

Regards,

Best to buy another laptop or build a PC. My i7 version of the Z51 with R9 M375 AMD GPU is also bust after 2 years. Bought a MAIBENBEN Laptop DAMAI E526 for my friend, which is faster in both CPU and GPU marks. Intel Core i7-5500U @ 2.40GHz got a score of 2,747 in CPUmark vs 6,575 for AMD Ryzen 5 2500U @ 3.6GHz. For video card, R9 M375 got a score of 1,220 while AMD Radeon Vega 8 got a 1,462, both benchmarked at G3Dmark. I bought it at half the price last May 2020 against the Lenovo Z51 which I bought on summer 2016. If you're short on cash, I suggest for you to buy it and have your old lenovo laptop for browsing and non-gpu related usage. If you don't have a reseller in your country, it's available at aliexpress. They're trusted. Like Lenovo, it's china, but it's trusted.

 

Hope this helps.
