Dear all,

Thank you for stopping by this topic as I need your help and expertise before committing to spend unnecessary money on a solution that might not work.
A friend gave me a broken LG laptop: the internal NVidia gpu has the common BGA problem.
After some time of use, it breaks some contact from the board and the picture becomes repeated 4 times on the screen.
I've reflown the gpu at least 4 times already but after some use it turns the same unusable state.
I've searched for solutions and found Mini-PCIe adapters. Those would be great since I use this as a desktop but I have some questions that remained unanswered on my research:

1 - Will it entirely replace the nvidia gpu?
2 - Would I have to use an external monitor or would I be able to use the Laptop's one?

Thank you for your help!
