I change a lot of laptop motherboards. EBay is a good source of used laptop parts. Don't be afraid to use these "used" parts. They are good, and there is no reason they can't last for years. If you aren't confident enough to replace a laptop motherboard, a computer repair facility can do it for you
hi all right its come out of shop with them saying they done all tests and motherboard is totally dead so where do I go from here as they want £180 which I cant afford .. should I buy a 2nd hand mb from ebay . also do I then need to get cpu gpu etc or do they come on the board as not to sure on laptops can someone run me through what I need to do cheers
If the CPU is socketed and the GPU is integrated into the motherboard, you can use the original CPU, and memory. Good used motherboards are better than the expensive new boards. Just use PayPal and EBay does have good buyer protection. Go for a top-rated seller
ok magic on what u said fuurther up u was right that make and model all had manufacturer probs they all got like heating problems so if I was to fix it is there another motherboard etc I could use as dont want same problem etc bud
Guys, I'm having a problem with our HP DV 1225ee.. everytime I press the power button, function lights lit for about less than a second, I've tried several combinations like removing RAM and HD and battery, even cleaning the cpu fan its still not working properly.. anyone can suggest or tell me what's wrong with this??
