Troubleshoot a Motherboard
Motherboards are an important part of your computer.
They enable it to function, and they're an integral piece of your hardware.
If you want to avoid the costliness of hiring a professional to troubleshoot and repair your motherboard, you need to learn the best way to figure out the problems yourself.
Back up everything possible on your hard drive.
If you're experiencing hardware issues, this is a luxury you might not have.
Keep backup files on an alternate data storage system to avoid data loss during hardware problems.
Notice the issue and reproduce it so you're aware of where the symptom manifests itself.
Isolate the problem.
If the system isn't getting power, make sure it's not the power cord or wall outlet before you try a different motherboard.
If everything is trying to run but not actually able to, check for loose parts on the motherboard before you replace it.
Remove all of the hardware that isn't actually necessary to make the computer function before you can narrow down the causes for your problem to the motherboard.
Try another compatible motherboard in your machine once you've eliminated all other potential problems-ok If it works with the alternate motherboard, replace the old one.
To check the motherboard for faults first check all the capacitors,IC(i.e. the small black coloured chips you see on the motherboard).
Identifying bad capacitors
If any of them is blown off or swollen on burnt then you have to change it by calling a good computer engineer.
Check the slots of the RAM clean them by a 1 inch broad painting brush and also clean the RAM by an ereaser.
If the problem is due to the slots then sorry you have to change the motherboard.
The simptons that the RAM slots are faulty is the buzzer on the motherboard will start beeping continuosly.
One thing also check the CMOS battery that small one on the motherboard I hope you know that battery.
If that battery is down change it and try.
