No, but mb's are very expensive. You might be better off replacing the laptop.

Blown or Poofed CAPS next to processor. PC will not load WinXP...get an IRQ_LESS... Worth replacing CAPS? Or get another MOBO, if so, where? Thanks


Replacing the caps is totally up to you depending on whether you like the motherboard and want to keep it. You can pick up replacement caps for next to nothing and they are fairly easy to solder in.
If you want a new or second hand motherboard then you should be able to pick on up from a reputable computer store, eBay or a repair store.

After replacing the bulged capacitors(MSI-7507) the computer doesnot bootup?Is there any other problem in the board?

Sometimes Electrolytic Capacitors, do not show visual signs of failure. The Electrolytic Paste didn't develop gas inside, it just dried up. (No bulging case, no rubber seal blown out, no paste oozing out)

The 'Caps' located around the processor, are Voltage Regulators for the processor. These 'Caps' are critical.
Processors must have 'clean', steady, supply. Their tolerance range is very small.

IF even One of these 'Caps' are bad, the processor will not start up, or keep running.
(BIOS senses the in-discrepancy, and will not turn the processor on, or will quickly turn it off)

The replacement capacitors must have the same Microfarads, and voltage.

Not doubting your soldering/electronic skills for one minute but,

1.If you have a cold solder joint, or burnt the trace on the motherboard

2.Did not follow anti-static guidelines,

3.Did not remove all hardware components from the motherboard before soldering,
(i.e, Processor, Ram Memory, and so forth)

4.Accidentally forgot to attach the 4-pin ATX power cable, from PSU to Motherboard

5.Do not have all Ram memory Modules fully seated

6.Do not have the 24-pin ATX Main power cable plugged in all the way.

7.Harddrive/s is/are, do not have the interface cable plugged in, or not fully seated.

The computer will not boot up either. Sometimes in our haste we become too zealous, and accidentally overlook some of the simple things.

As for any inherent issues dealing with this MSI motherboard, none to my knowledge

Blank monitor upon turning on PC

Well.... The motherboard could be dead... or check the power supply unit. Check the memory chips, see if the capacitors around the processor looks blown up (then motherboard is kaput) or make sure the monitor is properly connected to the motherboard monitor port... It could be numerous reasons ... See if the processor cooler fan is running and check if the processor's cooling paste is OK which would cause the processor to run TOO HOT and would prevent the PC to start-up etc etc....

New ower supply but computer still no comming on

sounds like a burnt motherboard to me. Replace with similar MB that has same socket for processor and same slots for RAM. A decent MB will run you about $40-70 as long as it isn't a gaming system or something.

I have a gateway 835gm desk top

there are a number of things that could be wrong here, firstly reset the cmos on the motherboard, if you cannot find the cmos jumper then remove the battery for 10 minutes (make sure the power cord is removed from the back) press the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaining power from the board and properly reset the cmos, while the battery is out remove the memory, clean the contacts and repace, put the battery back in and connect power, if the machine turns on, job done, if not then it could be something far more serious, check the power suppy if could be faulty, the processor may have blown or the motherboard itself may have blown, the only way to check all the components at once is to get a working motherboard which supports your processor type, the same model would be an advantage

No power

check your processor it might be incompatible with your new motherboard.
  • Check out you motherboard manual for supporting processor list, or view on your motherboard manufacturer's site.
