re note boot yes and no, can change to same or slight better spec if yours is faulty but they tied in so tight that what you have is what you have, psu may need changing also

adapter is controled via bios initially, then drivers then operating system, so check in bios to ensure its enabled, go to device manager and click enable

you would be amazed at how many people on this site have this issue when it usually is a little button or switch or control toggle whcih has been flicked off accidently, my acer has a tiny switch on from which is foreever being flicked off

I don't know what "tipple" means, but you can't change the video card even if you rip it out with a tin snips.
