Question about Motherboards
I have a mother board Giga Byte GA 81RM Rev 2.2.
After cleaning board from dust, I take out RAM , VGA card, sound card etc
After finish cleaning, I install back that all component.
And go to testing.
In few second, I smell no good smoke...like as burn component.
Suddently I turn off power.
I check all componen in board. I saw a small transistor near RAM socket
was burn and broken.
My question : Why this transistor become burn ?
How I can get replacement part..? caused I ready ask to electronic
component shop here , they never hear this number of transistor.
Please send a advice to my e-maill address , firstname.lastname@example.org
I very hope the answer and advice can sending to my email adress
This worry's me a little I have some ?'s that i need answered first before you started your cleaning did you ground your self and wait the 10 to 20 min time after you shut-off and unplug the computer before removing anything from the computer. If you did then before turning it back on did you make sure you replace everything in it right place. Sound to me like ram my have not been in all the way.
But it all comes down to one thing you need a new motherboard they really normaly don't make replacement parts for them and in the long run you don't know what else could be toasted.Most likely the bios chip went too.
