Question about Intel Motherboard
Daughter has a sony notebook that is about a year and a half old...store told her that the battery charging mechanism is not working. My thought is to replace the motherboard since I am told that this is on the motherboard. How difficult and costly is this? I am an IT person and have built several desktops...changed out a couple of hard drives and minor stuff on notebooks...any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated as this was the top of the line book...

Then why not pay a professional technician $50 to $100 for about one hour of "labour", to do the disassembly/removal/swap-in/reassembly of the new motherboard.
However, consider "parting-out" the working components (LCD screen, CD/DVD drive, RAM, keyboard, battery, AC adapter) and buying a new notebook computer (and buying the "extended-warranty"), because buying a replacement, proprietary, motherboard from the manufacturer can be _very_ expensive.

Hi, first get a second opinion, I have been able to replace several charge units on notebooks, as this is a new or current model go to the Sony website and contact the Tech's there for the required info about replacement. Goodluck mistyman.
