Guest M3438 G questions?

Hi there,

I got myself a m3438 G laptop for free today.

The power brick is fine (a bit hot) and the battery is taking a charge. However when I turn it on nothing comes up on the screen, the leds like the HDD LED and power LED are on and flashing and the guy who was my flatmate said it was the graphics card that was the problem so Im rounding down the problems to either loose connection in the Screen or the GPU is fried.

So I tested the TV out and the DVI port in the back, nothing was coming out so I must be the GPU thats the problem right?

Okay so the GPU is 6800 Geforce Go, and that is MXM III so can I put this in my laptop.

Geforce Go 7900 GS 512mb ??



Also the case for its a bit scratched and banged up is there any way to get a replacement or respray it. I fancy giving it a HALO theme.
