Well he wasn't that far off.

Motherboard : $359
Labor: $160

Total = $519

Unfortunately, because laptop motherboards on fit in a very few select machines, their prices are much higher. And, since it is an Alienware, the price is higher still. In fact, the cheapest I found is what I quoted for you and it is a used one and I even discounted labor since replacing a laptop motherboard can take several hours, I only charged 2 hours max even though it is likely to take 3 - 4.

Hi There, i have an acer extensa 5230e was told motherboard has gone can you tell me how much a new motherboard is.. I've tryed a new battry and charger and it still wont switch on.

A new motherboard is about $300 for that model. You may luck out by finding one on Ebay for cheaper.
I think the retail price on these is $500? so you may not want to put that much money into it. I'm assuming you will replace the motherboard yourself? If not don;t forget to add on some ones labour cost. If you have warranty that is about the only way to get it fixed cheaper than buy a new one.

Usually it is micro fuses (not user replaceable) or something in the power section that goes on the motherboard.

Duet ghw9100 washer clunking noise on spinning belt ok tub supports ok white plastic collar in front part of tub is broken and shredding

With the machine off, push upward on the inner drum and release. If the clunking sound occurs and the drum seems somewhat loose, likely the front main bearing for the drum is damaged and must be replaced. Major tear-down!

Well I picked up my desktop computer and the tech told me that it still overheats and that the computer will not start and that the video is not there keeps freezing. So what should I do? Do you think it's...

The pros told you what you should do ... You can fiddle with it if you like ... spend more money and time and still have a computer the pros told you is not worth fixing.

It will probably not be reliable if you do get it running and you will probably lose all you important files, including your Last Will and Testament and your 600 page novel as well as your family tree and history that dates back to the Revolution.

You can put another case fan to help the cooling problem. I believe the tech is telling you your components are at least partly cooked and are on their death bed.

For just a little more than the cost of your motherboard, you can get an entire new computer that is NOT cooked.

This is free advise, take it for what it is worth.

Thank you for considering

Hi, we bought computer 18 month ago, it stopped working and we were told that there was problem with motherboard. Is that ok with such a new computer with very low usage?

Well nothing can really be said, but yes its possible. The Motherboard could be poorly made, even with limited usage or just 1 usage it could break.

You have 2 choices.

Find a tech who can give you an estimate to fix it; or buy the exact model motherboard and install it yourself.

Buy a new computer.

Clevo d900t over he\ating shut down

This model motherboard is notorious for heat issues as stated before raise on cooling pad BUT to me it sounds more like they did not use AC5 Arctic Silver correctly on the CPU heat might want to check it out and also check the video card heat sink too. Also make sure you get the latest Bios update that enables the fans to run full speed all the time using Fn+F2. And also always check all the fan covers and clean excess dust from the fan grills

DELL INSPIRON E1505 NOTEBOOK (Motherboard/ Hard Drive Problems)

You have 2 solutions here, basically.

1 - Buy an external hard drive enclosure for laptop hard drive and connect that via USB to your desktop. After that, Windows should pick it up as an external drive, like a USB stick.

2 - If you can get the computer to turn on, you can connect the laptop and desktop together via network card (ethernet cable) with a CrossOver cable. You'd set the desktop IP settings statically to,, and the laptop to,, Then you'd just browse from one to the other by \\<computername>\c$, log in if it asks, and copy what you need.
