I am trying to troubleshoot to isolate the problem (This laptop was dropped) all the lights turn on but the screen is black, so it seems to be the graphics card. I have another alienware laptop that has the same slot(MXM Mobile PCI-Express Module) and it seems that I can put the working graphics card in the broken laptop. I dont really know what messes up when a laptop is dropped, and my worry is that if I install the good graphics card onto the broken laptop that it might fry the card? Can such a thing happen, or am I just being paranoid?
(And for those saying that you cant change graphics cards on laptops, yes you can change the graphics cards on alienwares since they have the slot I mentioned previously).
