Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if the graphics card is upgradeable/replaceable. I have a unit with no display wondering how to access the GPU?

You dont need a gpu, you need a new lcd panel.

Also, sometimes the close lid switch gets stuck, although rare it just turns off the backlight and signals sleep.

What is the model and variant? Usually like Acer Aspire 5534-'XX'

I will link you to the service manual to disassemble to replace the LCD, as well as a link to an LCD to replace it with.

Maybe the lid switch is stuck, or you assembled wrong?

edit: also, if you want help, you need to give us all of the information.

Appreciate the help, however, it is assembled correctly I have replaced these a few times. This is a different problem which is why I am asking if anyone has seen the problem be the GPU even though the external monitor works flawlessy or is it perhaps the video cable going to the LED LCD monitor?

It can be the cable. Do you know how to use a multimeter to check for continuity?

I have replaced these hundreds of times.

LED backlit LCD's don't have an inverter. LED's are DC current.

Yeah I understand that which is why I said no inverter because I have had about 10 ppl tell me to replace the inverter lol.

Yes I know how to use a multimeter...
