you must have gotten smth wrong.really wrong.From the pictures,i see that the size is almost double!This means that you bought a non-compliant type MXM card.Your laptop supports MXM-I/II i think (correct me) and this card looks like MXM-III/IV-HE!You should have known from the beginning that god himself would not be able to fit that card in your laptop.next time, know what ur doing before you stupidly spend money cause it's a shame.Now,to the point.your laptop should support 8600M GS/GT and MAYBE 8700M GT.In the same way you can buy 9500m gs and 9650m gt.Visit www.mxm-upgrade.com.You'll find a lot of help there.Now i have one question for you.I have an asus a7s so i might be able to upgrade something also.Was the disassembly part difficult?coz i see that you have "extracted" ur gpu.Good luck!

It's not that simple. The bigger problem is that the original card is the "flipped" version. Look at the arrangement of the GPU and the connector. The whole card is upside down, unlike the "genuine" MXM type II cards. If you insert a 8600M GS or GT card, you will have a serious problem, because the GPU will be on the opposite side than the heatpad. I saw an article about the new Asus F8 series notebooks, they applied Mobility Radeon HD 3650 which looks like the same arrangement as your 8400M.
