First find out which machine you have.  Remove the battery and look at the sticker on the bottom of the keyboard which will tell you or give us the last three figures of your serial number (found in the same place) and we'll tell you which machine you have and which GPU.  Usually I try to fix just one problem at a time so that if something fails to work, you have an idea of where to look.  First put the hard drive in any one of your other machine except the one that the old hard drive is in.  Set it up in Target Mode:  Use Disk utility to format the drive.  Then download and use SuperDuper to clone the old drive to the new.

Now put the drive in your machine, see what happens and we'll see if anything can be done for the remaining problem.
