You can't just replace the motherboard, the blu-ray is tied to the motherboard number, so if you put in a new motherboard it won't read blu-ray games anymore. Check http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html to find out how it is tied to the motherboard.

I've put some scratches on the 60 GB PS3 mobo. I've tampered with it, and well as it is. I'm wandering if possible do you know anyone who can solder the scratches to fix them.

I'm thinking of asking SONY to send my back my $$ for repairing my 60 GB PS3, and instead order a PS3 slim, and work to find someone who can fix my 60 GB.

If you replace both the motherboard and the bluray drive, would it work? And if it's a 60gb, does it have to be replaced with another 60gb drive?

    Believe it or not the 60GB drive can be replaced with any 2.5" SATA hard drive on the marked today, but you will have to have a backed up copy of your current operating system to format it correctly. It takes a minute to do, but well worth it. I transformed my 80 GB into a 320GB more than 3 years ago, still rockin!

How to update bios on mobo g41m-combo


Upgrading your BIOS

Now lets go through the various procedures needed to update your motherboards BIOS.

First you need to find out if there is a BIOS update available for your motherboard model, and if there is, whether you need it. Before we go searching for that information, you will need to locate your motherboard model number/name.

This can be done by looking at the documentation that came with your system, or even just by opening up the case and looking for the name silk screened onto the motherboard.

If you have a system that was built by a major manufacturer, such as Dell or IBM, look on the manufacturers website under your systems name or number to find updates.

If your computer was assembled by a smaller manufacturer, look for the motherboard manual to identify it. If this fails, use a program like Sisoft's Sandra to identify your motherboard model and manufacturer.

To determine your motherboard make and model through Sandra first down load and install the program. Start up Sandra and double click mainboard information.
This should give you both the manufacturers name, and the model number of your motherboard. Note down that information.

Once you have your motherboard manufacturer name and model, its time to find your motherboard's model, current BIOS revision and look up what newer BIOS revisions are available.
There are two ways to do this, the first through the manufacturers automatic BIOS update software, and the second by searching through the manufacturers website support section.

You don't really need to replace it with the exact same processor. You can replace it with any other sempron processor or other processors that your motherboard supports.

If you are looking for your chipset drivers, they should be available at the ABIT website. I believe these may be what you're looking for:
