Question about Toshiba Satellite M30X-S191TD (PSA72U3HJ01L) PC Notebook
Surge on the phone line to the modem took it out. Now no lights, no action, no nothing. I suspect the motherboard is fried, but could it be the power supply or a short in the modem? Maybe even a fuse?? If it's the mobo, must I replace it with the exact same one, or would one from another related Toshiba model (M30, M35, M?? line) also work? A quick scan of the web turns up a few replacement mobos in the $300-$400 which seems like an awful lot to spend to resurrect a 1.4GHz celeron-driven laptop. Anybody know which component might have popped when the lightning hit? I used to do component-level repairs on pcboards, so no prob replacing a cap, diode, or whatever.
