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.

Select button is worn out . I have to push it sideways and hard to get it to work and then only sometimes . Can I remove the panel and replace it or modify it ???


Probably less expensive to just buy a used one and canabolize it (or pitch your current one and use the Ebay one). Anyway, there's one just like your on Ebay right now going for $21 (new).

West bend slow cooker model 84866 lost power cord, repl part on their site is 5.99 but 7.95 for shipping is ridiculous


I found this one on eBay but do not know if it will fit your machine. It is a little less expensive and is used. Replacement parts are always expensive but less than buying a whole new machine...much less it keeps it out of the landfills. http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-WEST-BEND-SLOW-SLO-COOKER-REPLACEMENT-CORD_W0QQitemZ320494123773QQcmdZViewItemQQptZSmall_Kitchen_Appliances_US?hash=item4a9ef03afd

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.

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.

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

Mother board crashed


Most likely replacing your motherboard will cost a ton of money (either the part, or the work and labor will cost a lot) . It would probably cost less to buy a used laptop with the same specs:

If your laptop is under warranty, disregard what I just said, but if it isn't I would sell your broken laptop on ebay, and buy a new or used one.

If you want to keep your old data, you can just swap out your hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Laptop Display goes black:


Motherboard, (mainboard) problem. I can only recommend replacing it to fix the problem.
So you can look on ebay to get another motherboard, and take it to a local tech to install it.

I warn that this will probably be almost as expensive as buying a new Laptop. So unless you are sentimental to this one, buy a new one.

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