Hi,after using my pc about a year my external gpu died and now I want to change it with new one but too many people says I can't change graphic cards in some laptops etc.My gpu was amd radeon r7 m260,and now I am using intel hd 4400 integrated gpu which sucks.So I found a reasonable amd radeon r7 m240 on internet which I am planing to buy.So my question is can I change my gpu? not just chip the whole gpu together,I guess changing chip is impossible or needs factory machines like heat gun etc.Anyway R7 m260 and R7 m240 have similar specs so it wouldn't cause compability issues.My motherboard is toshiba satallite L-50b,I hope my external gpu is replaceable.

Motherboard; Toshiba Satellite L-50b

Died External Gpu;Amd Radeon R7 M260

New Gpu;Amd Radeon R7 M240

Anyway I am waiting answer in a short period of time hopefuly and I hope I opened this thread in the right place.
