Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop Dell technicians have told me that to replace the broken sound card I need to replace the entire motherboard. I don't know what motherboard is in the laptop and Dell won't help me unless I pay them. Any ideas what motherboard would be in the Inspiron 5150?
Do i have to get a new mother board if the sound card gos out

If your 5150 is off warranty, you have a serious problem.
Replacing the motherboard in a laptop is a very tricky and potentiallydangerous thing. If you are not a trained technician, I would recommendthat you take it to a professional.
Also, the cost of the motherboard and its installation is most likelyto be close to the price of a new or used machine. Perhaps this is abetter option.
Another thought occurs to me, if the machine works fine in every other way maybe you can learn to live without sound?
