Hi,

I have HP Pavilion  I dropped the laptop and I found local online a company where they offer to fix the Laptop for me but they contact me back saying the Graphics card is damaged from the impact and cannot be replaced because it's Integrated with the CPU you cant replace the graphics card?

Hi @marcofloris91 

"The Graphics Card is integrated with CPU" probably means that this Graphics Card (GPU) is part of the CPU (CPU and the GPU are packed in one chip package). Therefore in this case you need to replace the CPU, in most cases it is not possible in laptop.  However, in some cases, laptops having additional Graphics Card (separated from the CPU) and than if it is not soldered, it can be replaced. You need to verify what is your case. Check in your laptop specifications and ask in HP Support site.

This is not the first time I have seen a dropped laptop, with the graphics damaged, and found it to be a way to link bait for a repair company and raise their website rankings.  To me, it would be incredible if only the graphics part of the processor were damaged.

Sorry, but I find your post questionable..
