    Ok well, seeing how No New Macbook pro release today, it is time to repair my old ones. I have a 2011 15 inch that accidently fell off a low table and knocked loose the graphics card, from what I have gathered through google search. Anyone have a link to video or text instruction how to repair? I am hoping it is as simple as unscrewing and plugging back in? :)

    Everything is soldered onto a single board, so no, it isn't so easy to repair.

    Chances are your graphics card hasn't been knocked loose, but something else entirely broke. What makes you think the graphics card is at fault here?
