Desktop GPU in beefy laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi so i saw Linus's video called "Put a Desktop GPU in a LAPTOP... The CHEAP WAY" and I happen to fall into the "niche within a niche within a niche" and would love if i could figure out how to use a beast to create a ghetto gaming PC from my old laptop. but he kinda just ended the video by saying "yes, but actually no" and I am willing to work and learn how to modify the BIOS to make it work, and am fine with having to restart my computer to make it work, and might even consider buying the shielded chord if i think it will give me better results. where do i start?

my GPU price range is $300-500 and while i don't know much about BIOS yet, i'm willing to learn.

My immediate question is how do i configure my BIOS to resister the better graphics card of the one in my laptop already?

lastly, does any

.one think that it would be in the realm of possibility to take apart my laptop and convert it into a desktop? 

thanks.

Yeah have fun modifying a bios with out a good understanding of coding for hardware, or finding a guide somewhere

Do you mean a better cpu ? 

What 

Does it have a standard LGA cpu ?

Well first of all bios modding and actually understanding your way around it is legitimately confusing and hard 

Getting the card to work with the laptop's chipset firmware is not possible for a casual user 


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying 

 

@TofuHaroto so I can see your post

yes i meant a better CPU idk why i said that

 

Is the BIOS coded into a computer when it is made? like every computer has a hard coded bios that can be changed but is almost never changed.

If i were to build my own desktop would i have to code the BIOS like this? Its not actually harder than building your own computer is it?

lastly I am considering 2 options. A. could i learn how to mod a BIOS in under 50 hours? if yes, is there a chance that after all that it still wouldnt work?

or B, could i hire someone to mod my BIOS for me.

one more thing, If i do go down the rabit hole on this, is there a chance my BIOS could get screwed up in the process? irriversably?

I know this is a lot of questions, im just asking whats on my mind. thanks for your time

Lmao no.

 

 

 

To put it simply your laptop motherboard has a proprietary firmware that most likely won't allow you to put a new GPU in 

With a different chipset name for e.g tu104 etc 

That can not be changed lmao

how would this be any different from swapping a new graphics card in for the old one inside the laptop? it would have a different chipset name reguardless of wether or not it was in the computer or plugged into a beast no?

I don't really thing you get it lol

The motherboard's chipset has a proprietary firmware that won't allow it to accept a discrete GPU 

If the laptop doesn't support mxm 

You won't be able to

how do i know if my laptop supports mxm?

so laptops have proprietary firmware that is built in that cannot change where as a homemade desktop does not? is that closer to correct?

you are right i dont understand. thanks for answering me though
