My DV6 1350 Laptop it's not sending any video

You changed your motherboard without really getting a second opinion? You changed your motherboard without testing to see if the problem was with the LCD Screen?

Ok, if your laptop is booting up all the way except you have a blank screen try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

I have a Gateway laptop that refuses to do anything. No power, no lights. Nothing. The power brick is good, it puts out the right power. I've pulled the battery and tried running the laptop without it. No...

There could be one of two problems here.
The DC-in jack could be bad on the motherboard. If you're competent with a soldering iron you could try replacing that.
Otherwise, I'd say you're looking at a new motherboard.

My laptop will not turn on the power supply is is fine gateway m6880

If laptop will not turn on and the power-supply is fine then it will be the computer itself and the only way to fix that would be a new motherboard due to the everyting oinside the laptop is pretty much connected to the mother board and not able to replace it without replacing the motherboard

My Acer 5630, suddenly cannot turn on. I already replace DC power adapter by a new one, but the problem still exist. Anybody can help me.

If you have already changed the charger, and tried running it without the battery, it sounds like you have a Mother Board failure. You should contact Acer and have it replaced.

Dell Inspiron 1525 has black screen and blue lock icons are active, with centre(of three) flashing.

Remove all Drives, battery, RAM and wireless cards, see if anything changes, if not replace the motherboard. If error changes, add 1 RAM module back and see if system POSTS. If it doesn't , try the other module, if still no go, replace motherboard. If you do get a change, add items back until you ID the failed item.

Is there a replacement video card for the NVidia 8600 on HPDV9700

When you look at the specifications for your system and you see an "M" after the video card number, RE: Nvidia 8600M .... The "M" means that the video is a chip and is soldered onto the motherboard and cannot therefore be changed without serious knowledge of micro soldering these connections. It takes specialized equipment. In most cases you are stuck with that chip on that particular motherboard.

I have an Acer Aspire 5735 RAM

If computer is booting, connect the laptop to an external display , and start it up. If you have display in there , then the problem is a faulty inverter.
If you have no display, then the most common fault is the motherboard.
If computer does not start at all, then it is probably the DC connector on laptop motherboard. It must be re-soldered.
A motherboard fault is not that bad. Motherboards are replaced by Acer at a not too high price, or under warranty. Replacing motherboard you will not lose any of your data and the computer will restart in the same condition it was before the fault after replacing motherboard.
I am an authorized Acer representative and technician. They have an excellent customer service (at least here in UK). They will send a courier to collect and deliver back the computer, they have low prices on repairs, and warranty extension options. Call Acer and discuss the repair.

If Acer does not have the motherboard , then repair may get expensive. Third party price will start from about $220 for used or refurbished part.

Motherboard or DC Jack Problem???

i agree with your logic and think its a good idea to get the jack soldered to the the motherboard before anything else is replaced and would hardly cost anything too
