So I've bricked my G73SW over 3 years ago now and I am thinking of repairing it myself.

At the time, I decided to flash the wrong vBIOS onto the GTX 460m card and bricked it. The screen no longer worked.

I took it to an Asus service center and they told me the motherboard and the GPU needed to be replaced and wanted 600$ for the job which I wasn't ready to pay back then on a 2 year old laptop.

Now that the parts are cheap and am considering repairing the laptop but I have doubts that the motherboard needs replacing as well.

What to do? Should i order a new motherboard as well or get the GPU only and see if that works?
