I have an HP Pavilion DV2701TX special edition laptop. It has Nvidia 8400M GS graphics card embedded into the motherboard. There is a problem with the graphics card, it just dies out after use of a year or two. So, it died the second time now. Now, I am thinking of having alternate options rather than getting my motherboard replaced at a service center, which is pretty costly.
Are there any good options?
The laptop has an external PCI-Express card (/54) slot. I am not sure if I can use this slot for an external graphics card. Even if I am able to use it, will it work right from boot as my internal graphics card is just dead?
