Question about MSI MS-1036 Barebone
Long story short; small case crack near power attach point. returned to CITRUS MICRO repaired $328 lasted a week "get battery tested" reply??? 2 local shops "unit doesnt work without battery, probably not battery.I agree. tore down unit could not see any circuit damage(I'm not a real tech). Citrus might have replaced power board?. Sales rep could'nt tell me what was actually repaired; " Problem.. repaired notebook logic board.... $328.74" any idea's??? All help greatly appreciated, Skypilot
You hit exactly on the head with don't move the unit when plugged in - there are many people with the MS-1036 having this problem if you search the web. MSI does cover the bare-bone itself, however this falls into that damaged not defective area. Many shops would replace the entire board, making it costly as looks you had done once already. Good idea is to look to Asus 17" bare-bone and move your items over, much better made. Citrus Micro - see you worked with them, so have I, always had good luck with them, they make great contact and sometimes too honest, prices are great to - like any etail store with returns, manufacturer warranty tells most etail stores how they are to handle things. Could be why you see them getting rid of selling MSI products? Looks like you found the best idea, take to walk in repair shop - hard to beat that or again, buy new bare-bone.

Hi, Your best bet probably would be to bring it back to Citrus Micro for them to rework on your unit. I believe that you are entitled to warranty. If for some reason you prefer not to, then you would need basic knowledge of electronics, a VOM, a low wattage soldering iron and familiarity with surface mounted components to perform a do-it-yourself repair, otherwise you're back to Citrus City or some other qualified repair professional. It is possible that you have: 1. cracked board; 2. cold solder; 3. defective components such as diodes, fuse(s), charging transistor, resistors etc.; 4. looses connection. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
