ok so there is alot that i need to know. so ill start with a single question and ask the next question down the line as i get my answers.
so question one:
my laptop had something fall on it (a poorly built shelf, by my dad). and ever since, it has been disabling my graphics card (luckily i have switchable graphics) with error 43 on startup. i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and shutting down then restarting the computer, i have tried unplugging then reseating the GPU. none of what ive tried has changed anything.
my question is, do you know of any way i can determine if this is because the GPU is broken or if something on the motherboard itself is broken, without taking this to a shop?
