WANTED: Dead Motherboard or Graphics Card
« on: October 07, 2017, 09:54:31 AM »
Hi gents.

I have an hp proliant microserver that i bought without the knowledge that the vga port was faulty/ not working. I was thinking if just buying a new graphics card and just using that but funds are low at the moment so i had a brain fart and now im thinking of just finding a dead motherboard or graphics card and removing the vga port from there and installing it into my motherboard.

So if anyone has any dead motherboards or graphics cards that you would like to get rid of please let me know and i will gladly come collect them, preferrably this weekend because i will be car-los by tomorrow evening.

Im based in Pretoria.

Thanks.

Vishen

Are you sure it's just the actual physical port?

Yes, looks like the pins that go into the board are damaged, when i move the port it brings the display back on the screen

Just a shot in the dark here but @scorpioman86 may be the best person to help with dead parts and may even be able to help with a swap.

I knew I had a dead motherboard somewhere but could not lay my hands on it immediately. I found it yesterday whilst scratching for something else.

You are very welcome to it.

I am also in Pretoria.
