|The term CARD is frequently mis-used.|
Almost all computers have at least one video adapter, a.k.a. display adapter (that's what Windows uses in Device Manager), or graphics adapter - some standalone video chip or video capabilty built into the main chipset circuits that produces the video, but it is NOT a video CARD unless it is on it's own separate printed cicuit board or module and plugs into a slot on the mboard, or on a laptop, it may plug into some other connector attached to the mboard, and a CARD is REMOVABLE
Most laptops, except for a few high end ones that are a LOT more expensive, DO NOT have a video CARD. A CARD is REMOVABLE. Usually the video adapter is built into the motherboard and cannot be removed.
The same applies to other adapters built into the mboard - "onboard" adapters - network, sound, usb, firewire, bluetooth adapters,etc.,etc.
As I interpret it, technically, anything you plug into ports on the outside of the case is NOT a CARD either !
This problem regarding wiring that passes through the hinge area affects all laptops.
If you search on the Asus web site, they may have a free Service or Maintenance manual or similar you can look at online or download for your model or model series, that will tellyou what you need to know. If they don't have that, you can often find such on the web, for free, or for a modest fee, or, sometimes, merely enough info for you to be able to unplug the wiring to the display etc. in the lid properly inside the base of the computer. I haven't opened up many laptops,but the ones I have opened up
- require you remove the bottom part of the base case to be able to unplug that wiring from the mboard
- had the voltage inverter inside the the lid under the bottom of the display - it could also be inside the base.
If you find a Service or Maintenance manual or similar you may find the part number for the various wiring / wiring bundles in that, and if so, you can search on the web using that or those part numbers.
If not,most laptops have more than one possible mboard that can be installed in the same model series case, and may have more than one possible part number for the wiring / wiring part number. There MAY be part number labels attached to the wiring /wiring bundles If not, you may need touse your specific modelnumber,not the modelof the series,tofind the proper part number you need.
If you can't find the info you need, replacing the wiring to the lid and replacing a voltage inverter, is a job laptop repair places frequently do - any place that is certified to repair Asus laptops will be able to do it for you, or they will be able to order the proper parts for you.
