Question about Acer Aspire AM5641-U5520A PC Desktop
Computer 4 months out of warranty. You can see one of the flux capacitors on the motherboard is burnt. I am trying to purchase a new motherboard. Only number I can find on board is 001D92978852. Unable to find anything or anywhere on line to purchase this board. Any suggestions?

I will suggest you to send the computer to acer service center and they will replace the new mother board. it will take some time but apart from that they will also check other things as well. you are investing money to replace yourself which can cause more problem. mother board should be the right one so that it should match with the other components of your comp. it wil cost you bit more but the factory fittings will be better than what you will do yourself and risk involved is less. you can also claim them if anything goes wrong. it doesnot matter if it is out of warranty or in waranty. dude you are paying the money and thats more important.

There should be some more numbers on the board.
Probably between the expansion slots or near the edges.
If you notice a "FEW" capacitors blown then there may be a more serious issue with the board or in rare cases the power supply itself.
A replacement board would in this case be a lot cheaper than the cost involved with a repair.
Luckily quite a few boards would fit in that case.
From a persona point of view and the fact that do do seem to have some damage it is reasonable to expect more damage to possibly the CPU itself or the RAM and maybe even other components.
To reduce the costs and provided you have both the time and some experience you may want to look at building a new machine
Cases are quite cheap and offer more expansion facilities than the acer one.
A new motherboard with CPU can also be had quite cheaply
Or you could even consider what is knows as a bare bones system.
Using that type of approach you could build the system and try the ram from your old one and if that is fine use it. Same with other internal devices.
As for the operating system if you have a proper copy of the operating system you could use it to install on a newer computer using the COA (Certificate of Authenticity) from the old one.
If you only have restore Cd's then it would be problematic (but not impossible)
I have found staples to be a little expensive for repairs so may tend to look at some of the smaller more reputable tech shops in your area.
Without more numbers etc from the boara it will be difficult to make an exact specification or suggest the nearest board.
A check on ebay may give you a few sources
