Motherboard replacement 450rog

New ones are pretty expensive and I can get a used one on eBay for much less but it probably won't have instructions. Have any ideas where I can get instructions? thank you. :)

    Here is the service manual, it is a multi-part.

    Attention! This manual is multipart. Download all, before decompressing.

    After downloading all 8 parts(0-7), click on the 0 one to start decompressing it.

    If after clicking on the link, you get a download box, cancel it and paste the link a second time.

    I checked the Gatway support site for you and found no manuals that outlined replacing the motherboard.

    I would suggest contacting Gateway and asking them if it would be possible to get a copy of their instructions. Explain that the laptop is not under warranty (which I assume its not right?) and you really enjoyed the product and want to continue using it.

Whoa. I've boght mother boards from Ebay before an I got junk. If the person you're buying this from is offering this for so much less then make sure he/she quarentees it works. Secondly pay only with PayPal connected to your credit card. That way if you get a junk board you can have the credit card company deny payment.

I need a motherboard for a medion 96340. I have searched all over and can not find one. I purchased another motherboard off e-bay but it was bad also so I ened up send it back. I purchased this laptop...


It is generally way too expensive to replace a laptop's motherboard, and if you did it without professional experience, you might end up breaking a component. I would suggest you get a new laptop. If you can't afford a new one, there are many used ones for sale that would probably cost less than your repair fees.

Acer Ferrari 4000 power up with blank screen, no


If you cannot "press DELETE to enter setup", then it's the motherboard, or the battery, or the AC power-supply that has the problem.

Since it's likely that at least one of the battery and the power-supply are working, it's probably the motherboard (or the CPU on the motherboard) that is failing.

Take the computer to a qualified technician.

Replacing the CPU is possible, and is not very expensive.
Replacing the motherboard is possible, but is very expensive
(a few hundred dollars for a replacement motherboard, plus $100 for the technician's time to disassemble/replace/reassemble).

The only "good" news is that your files on your disk-drive probably are intact, and can be read and transferred to a new computer.

Of course, you can try to sell the "dead" computer on eBay, so that somebody else can "frankenstein" your computer with their computer, to combine two dead computers into one working one.

Can I replace the touchpad?


Yes, though replacing the whole keyboard is actually less expensive than buying the touchpad alone. It's really pretty easy, and there are several replacement keyboards online- ebay and TigerDirect.com are great resources for replacement parts

Gatway 450ROG PC Notebook and i forgot bios passward


Shame on you.

There are password erase programs out there, but they are pretty expensive. Best to take it to a techie who has one, and let them do the dirty work for you. Probably cost you $25 or $30us to have it done.

Replace motherboard


you need to look for a disassebly manual or instuctions for that model, these type of manuals are hard to come by so i'm affraid it could be trial and error, make a note of what your doing, assemble the screws in order of how you removed them, draw a simple diagram of the laptop layout as you take it appart so you know where the screws came from, there are also delicate ribbon cables underneath the keyboard, so take care to be gentle and be patient, you will get there if your competent enough as you describe

Laptop screen very dark


the screen is not a sealed unit... and the backlight and the lcd bulb can both be changed out...
I do it on a daily basis....

It is way cheaper to change out the lcd bulb than it is to replace the lcd display panel... Way CHEAPER

the results are the same

Without a visual inspection it would be impossible to say. But it does sound like you will almost certainly need a new motherboard.
