Motherboard replacement question

My motherboard went bad and I need to replace it. The question I want to ask and find out is how do I get the replacement to work with the current windows XP operating system that is on the current hard drive now
I want the replacement motherboard to work and run the current operating system without giving me a blue screen. What similarity
should the replacement motherboard have in common with the original? So that the operating system that is on the hard drive now will accept the replacement motherboard and run?

    My motherboard went bad and I need to replace it. The question I want
    to ask and find out is how do I get the replacement to work with the
    current windows XP operating system
    These operating system looks for certain things to function and work. Now if you replace a mobo board and it has different things it may not work.
    I cannot explain much better but it has to be looking for drivers and hardware that it used to boot before.
    There a big list and I not sure what it's looking for or needs to work. But something in there need match or else it's not going to work.

You should be fine. Once the MoBo (if it is an exact replacement) is in and your box is completely assembled you should be good to go. I don't know why you are expecting a BSOD though?

I hope this helps,

    No it doesn't have to be exact. Why do you expect a Blue Screen Of Death though?

    Ok, just checked out some of the posts of the thread you linked me to and have to agree with a couple of posters in that eMachines aren't worth putting any money into to repair. If your MoBo is bad, what's next? Just my opinion formed from my experience with this brand. Although I did swap a hard drive out on one and had no problems as one poster in that thread posted, so I am confused now.
    Depending on what model eMachine you have, you should be able to find a MoBo on fleabay.
    I do understand that you want to retain the data on the hard drive in it, but there are ways to do that via software. And if the power supply had something to do with the MoBo failure? You might be in for more than you bargained for in fixing this box (such as smoking another MoBo/Processor).

Pc Er Error code

Jim, Pc Er is a Communication circuit failure on main board or
Communication circuit failure on control panel board
Could be a loose or corroded connection, a bad mother board or a bad display board. Before doing anything, unplug the refrigerator for 5 min and plug it back in. This may reset the motherboard. If not, check the comm cable at the display and the motherboard. if ok, then you will need to replace either the motherboard or the display board. There is no way of determining which one to replace.

Need instructions for replacing and wiring Motherboard

Luckily that is pretty easy with modern motherboards.
1. Remove power and unplug all devices hooked to computer.
2. Open case.
3. Write down the location and orientation of all wires connecting to old motherboard.
4. Disconnect all wires from the case that are plugged into old motherboard.
5. Uncrew the screws holding the motherboard in the case.
6. Carefully remove old motherboard.
7. Install new motherboard and secure it to the case (probably using the same screws as the old MB)
8. Refer to diagram you made earlier to plug in all the wires to the proper places in the new motherboard.
9. Check and make sure the new motherboard works before closing the case.
10. If everything is working correctly, close up the case and you are done.

Dell Xps M1330 New motherboard failure.

When you removed or put in the CPU and the Heat Sink did you put a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on them? If not that is like metal touching metal and it will short out when you try to boot up.

The other problem might be that either one of your memory chips is bad or one of the slots on the board that holds the memory is bad.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

Need help with M2350 no power

The power connect is hard wired to the motherboard and would need to be replaced. Being a laptop, I suggest having it replaced rather than doing it yourself.

Contact a service depot for prices on this. They can also do a diagnostic service which will help to find the real issue, if that proves to not be the power connection.

Can you try a different power adapter to test that first?
