Motherboards are specific to laptops unlike desktops. Also, if you run Windows it fails spectacularly when you change the motherboard and it's not exactly the same model.
The 8600m is well known on the web. Example:
You got 8 years which is great. Time to move on.
İ have a 8 years old Acer5920g and having same problem with most of 5920g users . My gpu's is dead . Probably because its chronic solder problem . İ dont what is my motherboard right now . İ dont know if gpu is seperated or onboard . My first question is from here . Can i get if its seperated or onboard by its model name ?
Now second question . Lets assume it is onboard and i cannot change only gpu . Can i buy a new random mb and another random gpu something like ... lets say 8600m gt and can those two run fine my old laptop ?
Last question . İf i buy the same model can i change new ones part with old one ? İf i buy another model of 5920g can i change new ones part with old one ?
Those are my specs :
