my old mainboard of toshiba L550-11J *PSLN8E has the graphic card Mobility HD4650.
I have no garanty because of changing hard-drive.
So I've done an error-analysis by toshiba and it said that mainboard is defective. Graphic card OK! They wanted me 480 € to pay to get it repaired.
The mainboard is:
Mobile Intel GM45 Chipset!
I bouht a mainboard on ebay from the same model of a L550 series, but PSL00P.
Its the Mobile Intel GM45 Chipset with Intel 4500M graphics.
Its the same and the mainboard fits in, the same dimensions of HDMI, Lan, USB - Outputs. The screws are exactly on the same positions because of the same plastic cover of toshiba.
Well I didn't get it yet, but I've got a question about the graphic card, I talked with toshiba but the hotline is not competent to answer that.
The new mainboard had also the same MXM-port. Well, does it work then?
I saw in my old mainboard with the Everest-Home Edition hardware-software that it had the same 4500M Graphic onboard but it was deactivated. I think that in new mainboard it is activated and I will not be able to activate the mxm-slot or does it work automatically like on desktop mainboards?
Raplacement of Mobile Intel GM45 Chipset (Toshiba L550 PSLN8E; Graphic: ATI HD4650) with
Mobile Intel GM45 Chipset (Toshiba L550 PSL00P Graphic: Intel 4500M).
Does intel 4500M deactivate automatically when I put my old HD4650 graphic card in the mxm-slot?
Diffrence between my model of L550 and the new mainboard is the activated onboard graphic,,, Will it be deactivated if I put my card in?
thanks for help
