The most solid advice i can give you on this would be to contact the manufacturer of the unit and see what they say is your best choice which really depends on the case type and case dimensions you have, the new board will have to fit exactly into the present case and the ports and card slots etc. have to line up correctly in order for you to use any external devices that you may have or plan to use they can also steer you in the right direction as to the heat dispersal and power consumption of you new board so give them a call and see what they say, who knows it may be a lot cheaper to just replace the system itself rather than spend money on having a new motherboard installed. And if it's still under warranty it would definately be a good idea to see if the present board is defective or buggy!

Recently my printer stopped working. It does not turn more I took the service technician and he told me that maybe I needed to replace the logic board. Where can I Buy the logic board printer brand Canon...


My advise -- replace it.

The problem is that by the time you add up the price of a new motherboard and the technican's labor
costs, it will exceed the replacement cost of a new printer. That is the sad truth about most inkjet printers.
They are generally cheap for a very good reason.

As to the motherboard replacement, you would have to contact Canon technical support for pricing. I
doubt that there is a generic replacement board.

My usb ports don't work. I was told the problem is with my motherboard. Is it worth fixing; is there another way to fix it. hp pavilion dv1000


Faith,

It does indeed sound like there is an issue with the motherboard. On a laptop, almost everything is part of the motherboard, so when one part on it goes bad, typically the whole board needs to be replaced. That said, given the age of the laptop, a new purchase would be advised over repair. If neither is a good option for you right now, you could consider adding new USB ports to the laptop via a "PC Card" expansion. An example of this product can be found here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16839156006&cm_re=pc_card_usb-_-39-156-006-_-Product

It is not difficult to install, and slides into the side of your laptop. There is probably a plastic placeholder there now to keep the slot covered.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.


Thank you.

You cannot replace the motherboard with a different one because laptop motherboards are not inter-changeable between models.
You need to purchase a new laptop, but you can remove the hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive case then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and file transfers.

My son has an acer e4600 and I don't know how to determine what kind of motherboard he neeeds. I have been told by 2 people that he needs one


Motherboards for proprietary manufacturers [such as acer] are built for them and only supplied by them. For all intents and purposes, that board is 'dead'. Acer technicians would advise that you purchase a new CPU [box] which would ship a casing, power supply, motherboard and processor, plus other hardware that a new CPU will ship with from the manufacturer.
It is advised that you approach your dealer or store where this unit was purchased from for additional information.

replacing the mobo is much cheaper that to purchase a new computer but purchasing a new computer is much better than replacing your mobo. because in the near future, you need to upgrade your system for better use.
