Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
The "Geek Squad" at Best Buy recommend buying a new computer. I would rather fix this one but they say it would cost $200 for anew motherboard and then more $$$ for them to capture and load any memory. Is this a fair fee?? Can I buy a new - not refurbished motherboard - if so where. Exactly what has to be transferred???
If the 200 dollars is for the board only they are probably fairly accurate. If this includes them installing the motherboard, that is very good. As long as the memory fee isn't too much more, this wouldn't be that bad of a deal. If you are planning to fix it, yes, you can find a new mother board. There are plenty of computer hardware dealers out there. If you can't let me know exactly what board you need and I will look as well. As far as the memory transfer, the only thing I can think of is cached memory or informaton stored on chips that was put there by the manufacturer. As far as a good price for that, I am not sure. If there is anything else I can do for you, rate this solution and post what you need to know as a comment under your lising and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. I hope this is helpful.
