dGPU connected, but not working.


Hey there guys, so, recently my dGPU stopped being recognized, but it still shows as connected, but it says, in the device manager, that there's an issue with the device.



"Other devices // 3D Video Controller"



"There are no drivers for the device" NVidia's driver also can't find it.



"Is there an issue with the device?"



"Error code"





"There are no drivers for the device"

"Power data"

PS.: I recently, after it stopped working, had several power related BSODs out of nowhere, I don't recall the exact issue name since I reinstalled Windows to solve it. This computer also has a history with ACPI power issues, causing high process interruption and latency because of that, although I'm not sure if they're related.



"Info about the local" // "PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0"



"Pile of devices" Maybe be ACPI related? Because I deactivated the ACPI function from my battery when I was having the process interruption issues (that was causing 100% of CPU 0 usage while idle) and it didn't solve, so maybe it was coming from the GPU and the problem got worse or something?


It's a Samsung RF511-SD6BR with a GT 540M.


PS.: I recently had a real rage with it and lost it and slapped the thing 4 or 5 times to the point it bounced and opened the chassi, so I might've broken something, although it did work for a few days after that (only the keyboard didn't survive at first) and at one point I noticed something weird, I tried to turn it on with just the battery and noticed it didn't turn on and the power LED was blinking like crazy, like it was having a short circuit or something.


I'm pretty sure something is wrong with the power delivery, because of the unsolveable ACPI process interruption, Kernel Power Failure? Not sure what it was exactly, but got a few power-related BSODs after it stopped working. Also, it was working intermittently, sometimes I would turn on the computer and it would work, but if I restarted it, it wouldn't show up anymore. Also,


Another note, the computer has shown some weird behavior after the fact, like freezing after Suspension, freezing in the desktop after being turned on and weirdest of all, one time, it froze in the middle of browsing and I decided to check if the power cable was fully connected, and just by forcing it in, the computer unfroze.


So, anyone might be able to help me save this little fucker, if it's still alive? Thanks :)
