    I would go back and reseat the card, check for loose connectors, pinched wires, etc. Anything you touched during disassembly should be double checked. If everything is solid you may have a faulty motherboard or your seller may have sold you a bum GPU.

    Also note that if you just replaced it with the same model of GPU and not a GPU from a G75VW there might be a firmware difference that would make it incompatible. Even if the hardware is the same there are differences between manufacturers at the firmware level. Unfortunately without a working machine there's no way to flash another firmware onto the card.

    toying with it some more today and i popped up the keyboard and armrest. The power cable completely removed from the motherboard and the keyboard. i didnt know that it could unhook from the keyboard aswell.. well i reconnected them and starting the laptop it booted and went to windows!! i guess this could be one thing to check aswell for those having boot problems..

    update: upon closer look the cable between the power button and motherboard has split and doesnt have good contact. ordering a new power/mb cord.
