Yes all motherboards are replaceable, Your just going to have to find the correct part # you need. The motherboard shouldn't run you more than 100$, although a repair shop will charge upwards of 300-400$ for the time to install.

Your laptop runs on 18.5 volts DC at 3.5 amps.....Check the output on the printer power pack, if it is not the same, you have probably cooked your motherboard and that is what you will need to replace. Laptops do not under any circumstances like power that is not speced to thier configuration.
