4 years ago - The laptop (S5116) stopped giving a screen. Took it to Geek Squad; bad graphics card.
They wanted $300+ to fix.
I am pretty handy and have tools, some knowledge and lots of time.
Is it possible for me to replace this at home?

I just saw a replacement motherboard on EBay. If it were "good" would that work?

It should work. Little complicated but if you feel confident you have nothing to lose at this point.

If the system fits a normal 2.5" SSD or HDD then a 1TB SSD will definitely work.
