Can you tell if it's a plug-in type piece of hardware, or does it look soldered in?
yeah, i think so too but it's too late to do anything about it. im just going to try to find a solution but anyway, the piece, which is the vga adapter, is a plug in type, so basically he must have replaced the nvidia geforce gts 160m with a quadro fx 3700m ..... if i keep getting bsod's im just going to order the geforce 160m and replace the quadro fx 3700m ... but like i said, the graphics card had some white substance on it that was covering the chips so maybe it was that , i'll keep u guys posted. thanks for the replies!

update: just had another bsod =( even after cleaning the inside. i guess my last solution is to buy another graphics card for it =(

update #2 : just did a video card stress test with furmark and the temperature reached over 100 degrees so i guess the problem is indeed the gpu .... what do u guys think ? should i just buy the original graphics card that the laptop brings and get rid of the quadro fx 3700 ? i think thats my last solution on this .. thanks for any input.

Yep, go for the original... Or be very sure you choose another compatible one...:)

I would suggest replacing the graphics card anyhow, since if it got to over 100 degrees C, I am sure that if it wasn't fried before, it is now.

I'd think so too... though I have seen cards hit a weird measurement of 106... and still have a great life after that... maybe it was goofy sensors but ... you never know... In this case.. replacing is the only option.
