Motherboards for this system are selling for $80 to $200 on eBay.
so the call is really up to you. a new laptop usually starts at about $350

To determine if you need to replace the keyboard, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and if the USB keyboard functions properly then you need to replace the laptop keyboard.
If the USB keyboard malfunctions too then the motherboard is faulty.
It may not be cost effective to replace the motherboard.

A techie told me that the reason my Gateway 7330GZ notebook will not power on is a faulty power distribution IC on the motherboard. The part is impossible to find in my part of the globe (Nairobi, Kenya)...


You need to replace the motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution.
It may be better to put your money towards a new laptop which will be faster and most likely slightly more than the cost of repairing the Gateway.
You can remove the hard disk from the Gateway and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer.

No power to laptop- will not turn on or when plugged into, mains power there is not lights onlaptop showing power is on,


take the battery out and try again. sometimes if the battery has gone bad it will stop the system from working. If that gets life out of it then you just need to replace the battery but you should be able to run without it until you get a new one.

If that has no effect then you have a motherboard problem. The power section or a fuse has gone out. This unfortunetly means a trip to the repair depot or repair shop to replace the motherboard. So if it is covered under warrenty you are ok but if not then you need to get an estimate as the price of a motherboard and labor can get pretty close to the cost of a new laptop.

I have Purchased 4 years ago my Sony vaio lapto in the US and I brought this here to the Philippines. Now, it was shut off and according to the repairman the motherboard was destroyed. what shall i do? ...


A replacement motherboard may not be a cost effective solution, even if you can find a replacement motherboard.
If it was me I would remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive for backup etc. You can transfer your data from this drive to you new laptop.
I would recommend you purchase a new laptop. New laptops are cheaper, faster and better than your old Sony.

LG RD405 MOTHERBOARD PROB.


Before you decide replacing the motherboard, have you determined the fault in the laptop?
I suggest you attach a monitor to the laptop and power up the monitor then bootup the laptop. This will automatically switch the video data to the external monitor. If you don't get a normal Windows image then you could have a faulty video card or faulty memory.
In a laptop the video card uses part of the main RAM (memory), try re-seating the RAM module/s and see if this corrects the problem.
If not you could have faulty RAM module/s, take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test them for you. If these are OK then you definitely have a faulty video chip problem. This is part of the motherboard and the fix is a replacement motherboard.
Replacing the motherboard may not be a cost effective solution, but it depends upon the age of the laptop and the costs of repair.
If you decide to get a new laptop, you can salvage the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Purchased a Acer Aspire 2930z. i get a blank white screen.


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the laptop up, if you get a normal image on the external monitor then you have a faulty LCD screen and may be replaced. If you still get a white screen then you most likely have a faulty video card.

The video card is part of the motherboard and usually cannot be repaired, the motherboard is normally replaced but it may not be cost effective to replace. If the laptop is a several years old then it is time to get a new one.

1 long, 2 short on the HP DV9000 is "bad video adapter". Since your video card is integrated into your motherboard, you're looking at replacing the entire board (between $200-$400 on average) + labor costs. It would be more cost effective to purchase a new laptop for $100-$200 more, with full warranty.

Hope this helps, and remember to rate those that offer free help :)

No power through the laptop dell d6oo


There's evidently a short on the laptop's motherboard. Unless it's something obvious that can be repaired easily (and it'll still cost a lot for the labor to take the laptop completely apart and put it back together), you're going to have to get the motherboard replaced (expensive)or get a new laptop - depending on which seems more cost effective to you.

In any event, contact Dell.

M2000 cannot power on


get multiple advice from different technicians... changing motherboard in a laptop is not cost effective. check your warranty and send it back to manufacturer.

do this first... disconnect all power source --take out the battery from your laptop, disconnect the power cable... leave it for 5 minutes or longer and reconnect the power source and turn on the laptop. "if this works, don't go back to that technician that says change the motherboard"

if this doesn't work and and you get the same recommendation to change the motherboard from other technician... it is more cost effective to get a new laptop. if you replace the motherboard, you will have to pay the shipping, service and the parts = new laptop (new warranty)
