Problem description

When the discrete GPU fails on this laptop, it's easier to just disable it instead of replacing to get the laptop working again.

This guide is valid for various Asus models from series A75 and K75, equiped with Compal LA-8371P board.

The screenshots are from Rev. 1.1 boardview.
