  1. Hi,
    Pls help... recently my Laptop ASUS M3N spoilt. I not able to ON it after it shut down during batery empty. I try start it with adapter also fail. I able to saw the power LED is ON and the CPU fan is ON but just about few second (~5 second) and the screen haven't shown anything, then it shut down it self(without any "Bit" sound or Error indication). I take to repair, technician say it is mainboard problem.

    I just wish to ask that, is my laptop still possible to repair? If i want to buy back a 2nd hand ASUS M3N, what is the price? Where is the best way for me to find 2nd hand Laptop?

    Pls help... thanks.... :'(

    Possibly you will need to get a new mobo for it then. I must admit I dont know much about laptop repairs, but I think may ebay would be a good place to look.
