Need New Motherboard and Power Supply

Ok, when I moved somehow the power supply got fried. So I took it into geek squad just to make sure and basically get more info than I already knew and they told me that my motherboard is fried as well. When a new power supply was hooked up, there was a repeting beeping sound and the guy told me that I needed a new motherboard. Well, I believe I know how to tell what the model is, I think it is a Micro Star MS 7046. I wanted to try to get the exact same one so I wouldn't have other hardware compatibility issues. Especially since a few months before it broke I upgraded the RAM to 1.5GB and I would like the RAM especially to be compatible. I can take the RAM card out and tell what type it is, I just don't know what exactly to read off the card to get the type of card. So I have many issues. I just want to find the same motherboard. Whats some good advice for this problem? Also I STILL need to buy a new power supply and wanted to know a good way to find a good one to get for my computer. Thanx

    Well, the RAM worked for a long time before this happened, with absolutely no problems. I also have upgraded RAM before and I looked on to get RAM compatibility and also a guy a geek squad confirmed what I thought also. Also when I took it in after it was broken, geek squad didn't charge me anything because they didn't DO anything but plug in a new power supply because at first I thought that was the ONLY problem. Then we found the computer still didn't work and they kept it for a day and I think researched the beeping. But they didn't charge me anything so I don't think they were trying to get money out of me because then they just gave me it back to replace the parts I dunno. I think they said mostly any ATX power supply will work but I just want to know where to buy a motherboard to be compatible with my existing hardware, I can install everything myself and my boyfriend's dad is a network admin. at the college we attend so he knows as well how to install hardware, I just need help finding and with compatiblity...

You said when your problem started it was making a beep? then you said you upgraded the RAM. Did you know thats the beeping sound made when its the wrong RAM. Its just a hunch but is it possible if you placed the old rams back in it might go. JUST A HUNCH OK!!!! When you took it in to see the GEEK he may have been trying to get some dollars from you and it didnt pay off.....just a hunch. If the Hunch is not a hunch you can see on the centrer of the board what kind it is. As far as the power supply is concerned what happened to the original do you still have that. What made you change. Gosh it must have emitted over the 18volts in the adapter........Im lost?

My laptop would not start, even after pressing start button please help

Make sure your power cord is working, You may need to purchase a replacement power supply for it or use a spare. If this still does not work, you can try removing the battery, unplug the laptop and then hold down the power button for 30 seconds to relase any power that may be locking it up - shot in the dark, but worth a try.
Unfortunately, if it isn't the power supply, either the power jack is damaged and needs to be replaced by a professional or you need to replace the motherboard. If it is an old laptop think about whether or not its worth it to sink the money into it ... you can have the geek squad or local computer guy move the data to a new computer, this does NOT mean that your hard drive is dead.

Hp mini not charging from power supply, port may be broken, do i get a new power cable or need to get port fixed?

You might want to take it the Geek Guys over at best buy and they'll tell you if the port is the problem or the cable is.I know this because my laptop motherboard was fired and i wanted to make sure that it was the motherboard or just the cable so he tested it and the port and cable worked fine but the motherboard was fried and they usually just charge you but he didn't.
Hope this worked

It sounds like a power supply failure. Do you plug it straight into the walll or into a surge protector. If you are close to a best buy, go to geek squad they will diagnose the issue for free but the fix is real simple. Let's just put it this way there are a few things that protect the motherboard from getting fried. If it is the PSU u are looking at roughly 40-60 dollars and it is a matter of 6 connections.

No power on WDelements WD5000

It's not a new hard drive casing that you need, rr_atl, it's a replacement power supply. Western Digital is well know for selling very poorly manufactured power supplies with this hard drive series. The problem you described is a bad power brick.

Computer wont turn on

So, lets say that you have double checked all cables, and everything is plugged in properly. When you hit the power switch on the case, do you hear the computer start then shut down several seconds later? Does the computer refuse to do anything but power a motherboard LED? Also, did the computer (or the person carrying the computer) bump into anything while moving it? The most minor bump can cause many problems.

I would try replacing the power supply with another one from a working PC, but just to make sure that the power supply unit is the problem. If it isn't, make sure all heatsinks are locked down appropriately and making full contact. Other than that, I don't know what you can do.
