The mainboard or motherboard is the main PCB in the laptop. It is the most difficult component to replace because you must completely disassemble the laptop to remove it and properly install the new one. Take the battery out, ground yourself and discharge the laptop by pressing the power button for a few seconds. Most laptops start dissassembling by removing the power button/led panel above the keyboard, and then removing the keyboard, de-attaching the LCD screen assembly. And then flipping it over and removing screws on the bottom, then the laptop will split in two peices, the top part of the chassis and then the bottom half which is where the motherboard will be attached. If you decide to continue organize your screws, label them or take pictures to help you get it back together. Hope this helps you get started.

My nvidia graphic card is not working.dell told me to replace motherboard as they cant remove only graphic card.please suggest me what to do???is it true?


I would not start with the motherboard right away. Try updating your drivers first. Here is a link for Nvidia drivers. Then try replacing the graphics card if updating the driver does not work. Motherboards can be expensive to replace, even if the part is not costly the labor can be.

You will need to locate the appropriate driver for your card and operating system, download it, and run it to install it.

It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.

8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Hello. The fan on my Nvidia gforce 7600 graphics card has broken. i was wondering if there is some sort of Nvidia warehouse i can send it to, to get it repaired?


Is it under warranty? If you still have the packaging or warranty info, you can look for a support number there. Nvidia does not usually provide direct support for their products, since they make the chipset but do not make the graphics cards themselves.

If it's not under warranty, it's fairly easy to replace the fan yourself. Replacement fans can be found at http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=576&name=VGA-Cooling You only need to unplug the old fan, undo any screws or clips holding it in, put the new fan in its place, and plug it in.

better to use 1 video card with dual output, you can split the monitor - separate or different applications on each monitor or you can also extent the application window to the other monitor (useful for spread sheets, applications with timeline, etc.)
