“i broke a part in the side “ yes that could be your problem. Here is the bad part. Unless we can see the damage the board etc. there is not a whole lot we can do. So, take some good pictures and post those with your question. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that. It will allow us to see what you see. If it is broken off there may still be the possibility to attach it “properly” by soldering it on etc.

I connected my aw to the television and then it worked but I disassembled it again and I realized that the edp connector was totally ripped off, thats because i sended to a verifyed dell center and the man there robbed me a 4 gb ram card and the half of the screwls, so i think he tried to repair my connector and he ripped of or i dont know, but now i dont have any more that connector. so i search and i dont find one, i dont know if i can replace him.

the computer works in a external monitor but the gpu dosnt work in that.

so i need to replace that connector.

if someone know where i can find a replacement pls tell me



Rodrigo L we need all the numbers that are on the motherboard so we can at least try to find what you need. Also, post some pictures so we can see the damage.
