Title: G74SX-A1 Motherboard Advice?
Post by: tinkerbell1990y on 09-April-19, 17:47:02
I have a G74SX-A1 with a bad graphics card. Due to how the 560m card is soldered onto the motherboard, I have to simply replace the entire motherboard.
 
However, I was informed that I needed an exact copy of the Motherboard as a replacement, that the part number had to match up and that simply having another motherboard for the G74 but with a different number wouldn't be a good option.
 
Does anyone know if this is true (whether it matters if the replacement has the same part number), and how I could check other than cracking the whole thing open (even though I'll eventually have to do it)?

THis is the exact model I have https://harddiskdirect.com/60-n56mb2700-b07-asus-g74sx-gaming-intel-laptop-motheboard-socket-989.html (https://harddiskdirect.com/60-n56mb2700-b07-asus-g74sx-gaming-intel-laptop-motheboard-socket-989.html)
