When you buy a new motherboard, make sure and get one that accepts the same processor and memory, and video card that you have now. It is not terribly complicated to replace the motherboard but if you have never done it before be prepared to spend a few hours reinstalling your operating system and all the correct drivers for the new motherboard components. Also make sure you get a board that will fit in your computer case, not all boards are the same size.

LAPTOP does not turn on. only fan runs.


Things to check first.
1. Make sure you have a new BIOS battery installed. Some computers will not start if the battery for the BIOS is dead.

2. The CPU may have overheated and no longer works. I lost a CPU and everything was dead.

3. A dead motherboard can also act in like manner.

Sometimes something will come loose on the motherboard causing a direct short which of course fries the motherboard and probably the CPU. Dropping a laptop can shake things loose.

My Daughter had this happen with hers. It was a 800 dollar HP Compaq and I had a heatsink come loose on my HP Compaq which fried CPU AND Motherboard. Beware of HP since they bought Compaq.

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.

Will not power up


This is a common problem with Emachine motherboards, the problem is the power supply is a best tech and allows voltage surges to the motherboard which fries it too. If available you usually have to replace both the power supply and motherboard. I do not know what exactly goes bad on the motherboard but I have replaced many emachine power supplies and motherboards. The motherboard kit which used to be available from Emachines included a power supply and no warranty if you didn't change the power supply. They knew they had a problem.

Computer turns on but no Video and doesn't go through POST.


Before you "fry it" try taking the CPU fan off of the processor, remove the processor, reinsert the processor and CPU fan and see what happens.

Sony pcg 9h4l motherboard issue


Hi,

Try to power off unit and remove the battery. Then press and hold power button for 30seconds.Put the battery back and turn it on. If it turns on turn it back off again and remove the battery. Connect your VAIO using the AC adapter only. If this will not resolve your issue you can check this with SONY or any certified service center.
