My Toshiba Satellite P30 Laptop is not working properly. It get hang after approx 5 to 10 min. after switching on. Then I have to switch off by holding power button; It switches on after some time only but behaves the same way. It showed me the error 'Media feluer' in blue screen. My current location is Mumbai, India. So I took the machine to HCL Infosystems Ltd; After a week they told me the problem of motherboard. They said I need to replace it but they do not have this specific motherboard (Processor type: Intel Pentium 4 processor, clock speed 33.32 GHz).
How can bye the same motherboard? And what will be the cost?

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow myinstructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen
Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.
Your charging circuitry, inside the PC may be faulty. OR maybe the Power Adapter, you need to try another adapter, if the problem does not go away, then you have an internal motherboard power supply problem it will have to be serviced. Or just maybe the second battery is faulty too, unlikely.
You will need a small set of screwdrivers, flathead and phillips, a pair of pliers or nut drivers, and a soldiering iron. A magnetic screw tray is also handy with all the small screws. You will need to completely disassemble the machine and remove the motherboard. If replacing with a new jack you will then need to heat up the soldier holding the jack in place to remove the old jack, then heat and clean out the old soldier from the hole the jack pins fit into. Soldier the new jack into place and put it all back together. I believe the P30 and P35 are basically the same machine, here's a link to disassembly instructions for the P30.
