T440p how to upgrade motherboard...

#1 Post by Whitieiii » Wed Sep 20, 2017 3:28 pm

how hard would it be to install a motherboard in a T440p? how can you tell if a motherboard has Nvidia or is the Intel only board by both part number and by just looking at photos? what all is needed to install the Nvidia board into an Intel only machine as I would like to do this in the future

Get the T440p HMM for how-to and frubom list (parts) on which you will find lots of different mobos.
Youtube will probably have movies, as will Lenovo.

how would I know what motherboard has the Nvidia 730M graphics? what is the part number or what do I look for if I can't find part number? also do I need a new fan/heatsink? what one do I need to get?
