Get a new motherboard Asus A8n-LA
Even comes with an intergrated video card like your old motherboard. If you have seprate video card, go with a ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe, its allot better.

You can also call they will repair it for $55. There is a chip under the heat sink that goes out. I just had the same thing happen to me for the second time. I googled and found a new motherboard through tigerdirect part search. There is also a place in Wis. called were you can purchase refurbished boards. Hope this helps.

I would try to look on e-bay for a replacement motherboard. One thing that might help is to replace the power supply, also. Although I've never had to do this to make the problem go away, it would be the next best thing to having to replace it a third time.

Good luck

I have a green light that is flashing on my motherboard and i cant turn on the computer

If you have a manual that came with the motherboard, check that out first. Usually the blinking green power indicator lamp on the motherboard indicates that there is a fault in the electrical circuitry; most times it is the power supply not supplying enough voltage to one of the rails. There are only 2 ways to check this:
>swap out your power supply with another of the same watt rating.
>if you have a power supply tester, plug it into the motherboard power supply cable coming from the power supply and that will tell you if it is good or bad.
For more in-depth information I hang out at
which is a free computer help forum. Post in at the Media and Hardware section and I will be along. Sorry, but this forum is not conducive to extended back n' forth communications.

My windows time is getting slow gradually. What should i do ?

There could be two reasons for the same,
1. The coin cell battery is drained and need a replacement
2. The motherboard software (BIOS) has gone bad , would require an update .

The following link is the BIOS update link for the motherboard. Before update make sure , all external peripherals except the keyboard and mouse has to be disconnected . Also verify the the existing version of the BIOS

If the above steps donot help, Then the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Thanks for using Fixya

My Acer 5630, suddenly cannot turn on. I already replace DC power adapter by a new one, but the problem still exist. Anybody can help me.

If you have already changed the charger, and tried running it without the battery, it sounds like you have a Mother Board failure. You should contact Acer and have it replaced.

What if the power ic of philips freevents x60 was burned?is it repairable? the value of the power ic cannot be recognized. is there a way to find what value it is?how?

1.If the power IC is burned, it isn't the only IC that's going to be defective now. Kind of like a 'domino effect'.

2.It isn't a simple fix, of just un-soldering a component from a motherboard, when dealing with a laptop motherboard. All motherboards are built in layers, (Desktop and Laptop), but laptop motherboards are even more layered.
(Scroll down to the heading -> Lamination, then read the entire article. Also check the links at the bottom)

This means the actual circuit trace may be between layers. (Circuit trace. The thin strip of copper, left behind after the Printed Circuit Board is etched)
You won't be able to un-solder it without burning the board, (Motherboard, or also called PCB), and re-soldering is twice as tough.

You need a reflow machine, high magnification, a precise soldering station, and highly developed soldering skills.
Not trying to ruin your day, or offend your computer repair skills.

Replacing the motherboard may be the only viable option. Check Ebay-> Computers and Networking>PC Components>For Laptops and Notebooks.
Also > Laptops for Parts.

You have seen that this IC is burned? I ask because the X35, and X55, had a bad problem with the On/Off switch going bad.

Gateway Gt 5220 computer powers on but will not boot

It's either the video card, memory, or motherboard.

I had the same problem with one of my desktop's. It ended up being the motherboard. Had to turn the computer on and off, on and off until eventually it would power on.

I'd start with reseating the memory and video card. Is your video onboard?

Let me know what happens and I'll keep throwing ideas your way.

Best of luck!

On boot up ,during 'post' the laptop (acer 5100) beeps twice(2 short beeps) and advises that there is a resource conflict. It then advises to press f1 to continus loading windows and promptly hangs! Any...

Resource Conflict - PCI in slot 02, Bus:01, Device:09, Function:02 Does It Read Something like this? If that is correct, you might not have all of the drivers for your hardware installed. Find out who your manufacturers are and download/ update your drivers.
