[SOLD] Lenovo Legion Y540 17" w/ Broken RTX 2060

Selling Laptop as is. Please read carefully.
Lenovo Legion Y540-17IRH
Model: 81Q40008US

No idea what to price at, so I'll just say looking for $OLD OBO

The entire laptop is fully functional, but the dedicated GPU (RTX 2060 6GB) is broken and displays graphical artifacts on startup. The laptop is fully functional when running on Intel Integrated graphics.

Because the HDMI and DisplayPort are connected to the GPU, I believe you won't be able to use a second display using these ports. I am unsure about the USB-C. but it will probably have the same issue. A second display may be able to connect if you have a USB-A to display adapter.

The warranty is expired and is also void because I had opened up the laptop already.

Full disclosure: I have tried to reflow the RTX 2060 and it did work for a short time before artifacting again.
  • You may be able to fix the RTX 2060 temporarily by reflowing or reballing, but it is not guaranteed. Do so at your own risk.
  • Otherwise, you also have the option of buying a replacement Y540 motherboard.
