You can search Ebay for a motherboard. If you can't find one there, it is cheaper to get a new laptop than try to fix an old one.

My computer won't turn on

If you tried turning the laptop on with NO battery but plugged into the mains and you get no response, even no little lights flickering then its possible that something to do with the motherboard (obviously, you might think) but get someone too look inside it if you can, something might be fried.
its a bit hard not actually seeing the machine

My laptop cord fried wen i plugged it into my laptop, i can't see any damage too the cord itself but the laptop won't turn on. I removed the battery and tried powering on the laptop that way, but...

It could very easily be either a fried motherboard, a broken connection on the DC jack within the laptop, or a fried DC Jack. It is typically at least a $200 fix if you go through GeekSquad or the manufacturer - maybe more if the motherboard is fried. Unfortunately, there isn't an easy solution to this one.

I spilt wine on my dell inspiron 1545. At first it would turn on and tell me there was a problem with the hard drive and suggested reseating it, however this didn't do anything. Now the laptop...

The sockets appear to be shorted. All you can do is to dismantle the laptop again, wash it thoroughly with demineralized water, dry it completely and see if that fixed it. If it hasn't then the motherboard has been damaged and it will have to be replaced.

LAPTOP does not turn on. only fan runs.

Things to check first.
1. Make sure you have a new BIOS battery installed. Some computers will not start if the battery for the BIOS is dead.

2. The CPU may have overheated and no longer works. I lost a CPU and everything was dead.

3. A dead motherboard can also act in like manner.

Sometimes something will come loose on the motherboard causing a direct short which of course fries the motherboard and probably the CPU. Dropping a laptop can shake things loose.

My Daughter had this happen with hers. It was a 800 dollar HP Compaq and I had a heatsink come loose on my HP Compaq which fried CPU AND Motherboard. Beware of HP since they bought Compaq.

Laptop powers up but the screen is blank. cannot reboot

Chances are you have the infamous Nvidia chipset of death issue. Basically there is a design flaw in the computer that causes failure after a prolonged period of use (usually after warranty) and HP is not fixing or standing behind their product.

There was a lawsuit against HP and Nvidia - and a settlement was reached. But only certain HP DV9xxx models are included in the settlement. Do a google search for Nvidia HP lawsuit.

Basically there is too much heat in the unit for the chips and connections that where used. The Nvidia chip generates most of the heat. The end result is that after a period of time - your motherboard will fry itself. Starting with the graphics (first the laptop display) then followed by the wireless card, followed by the entire motherboard.

There are "fixes" that you can try - but most are not really fixing the problem - just getting around it for a short period - more of a band aid.

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

My daughter's hp g60 230us laptop just stopped coming on. I reseated everything while e-chatting with an hp person and since nothing helped, it is the general consensus that the motherboard is fried. Why...

The problem is the motherboard, due a flaw design in those motherboards so if you replace the board the problem will appears in the future.
may best advice is sell for parts and get a most reliable brand like Dell.
i can buy the parts from you cuz i need the screen and few parts

I recently dropped my HP Compaq Presario laptop V5209US and took it to Fry's electronics for diagnostics. I wasnt able to open the CD door after it was dropped. They told me it has a ''bad optical drive...

If everything else was working fine (until today) and just the cd-drawer would not open, a damaged systemboard (or motherboard) is highly unlikely.

1) What does "not turn off"? The Laptop or the CD drive?
2) To check what is exactly damaged you could power down the laptop and remove the CD drive entirely. Then power on the laptop. If everything works fine only your cd drive was damaged.
