So About a year ago I traded my buddy my new tripple core amd laptop for his broken lenovo y560p. It has an i7 2630qm 4gb ram and a 320gb hdd. The bios has slowly corrupted its self and the computer can no longer boot. Its parts are near impossible to source. I am looking for any chassis to swap the i7 and other stuff into. All that is needed is: the chasis to work, have all the necessary port covers or have the port covers easily obtainable online. Most ivy brige laptops can take sandy brige cpu's thus why I am also looking for them. Drop me a pm or comment below if you have something.
Willing to pay cash or trade certain items such as pc components, acessories, etc.
- you need a laptop that had a equally or more powerful CPU ; otherwise the power delivery might be bad
-You probably will need a laptop that had a i7 -yourmodel- to avoid BIOS issues
I tried with replacing my i3 320 with a i7 560 ( or something ) and only problems , BIOS update issues , driver issues , power was fine because I chose a cpu with the same TDP , but it throttled under load and crashed .
Maybe look for just y560p working chassis , or resell the CPU on ebay ?
