Tried, but can't get mobo out of case

I had removed every single screw and part, but just can't get the motherboard out of the case. The LCD, Keyboard, top case, heatsink, the lags around the back VGA connector and parrallel port are all out. I can lift the motherboard, from one side but its very stiff near the cardbus area and the back area. I can't find anymore screws to remove.

    The laptop is a HP ze4315us, and I need to get to the DC jack. The manual on HP's website is not helping with this portion much.

You need to remove the two screws from the card bus ... I know this problem was posted in May, and would hope you have it figured out by now. But for the other people who are wondering ... there's two screws in the card bus cage (pcmcia slot) ... remove those, and the board should come out, considering all other obvious screws are out.

How do i safely remove the cable that attaches to the motherboard on my toshiba laptop


Toshiba satellite motherboard removal.

A motherboard is usually replaced for one of two reasons. You either replace a motherboard because it has gone bad, or you replace an older motherboard with a new or upgraded motherboard. In either case you will have to completely disassemble your laptop to even gain access to your motherboard. Fortunately, the Toshiba Satellite laptop can be completely disassembled even if you don't have a lot of technical knowledge.

Turn off the laptop, disconnect the power cable, remove the battery pack and disconnect any miscellaneous cables and peripheral devices. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Attach an antistatic wrist bracelet to prevent shock from static electricity. Static electricity can harm your computer's internal parts. Place the laptop face down, and remove the single Phillips-head screw attached to the hard drive cover.

Disconnect the antenna cable from the wireless card, and then lift the wireless card out of the laptop. Remove the four retaining screws from the modem card. Lift the modem card slightly out of the laptop, and then disconnect the modem cable from the motherboard. Set the modem card aside. Remove the single Phillips-head screw securing the DVD/optical drive. Slide the DVD drive out of the laptop's frame and set it aside. Remove all marked screws from the bottom casing of the laptop, and then place the laptop face up. Open the laptop as far as it will go. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry up the keyboard bezel. The keyboard bezel is a small plastic strip sitting between the keyboard and the LCD display. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the keyboard in place. Lift up on the keyboard and disconnect the keyboard's ribbon connector from the motherboard. Remove the keyboard from the laptop and set it aside very carefully. Close the laptop.

I need to replace the motherboard and I would like a break down on how to do so. thank you


Just start be removing all the cables
Take note of how they attach and the orientation

Some have small latches that need to be pressed to remove them

Once you have those removed then take out any extra cards that may be installed

these are held in by a single screw on the rear metal bracket

On some cards (graphic) theye may also be a small latch near the inner most part of the slot itself that the card fits in 9can be fiddly on occasion)

Once the cards are removed you should be able to see the screws that retain the board to the case.

remove those and wiggle the motherboard carefully. If it is still stuck check that you did not miss a screw.

Depending on the case you may also have to remove hard drives as sometimes on the smaller cases the may overhang the board

You should now be able to remove the MOBO

When you install then it is almost the same procedure but double check that the holes on the new one line up with the old mounting posts.

Remove any that dont or move them to a new location that matches a hole on your new board.

If both motherboards are LGA775 socket, then the next concern is whether or not the case is capable of having the new motherboard installed into it. Disconnect all power cables to all dv drives or cd drives and hard drives. Disconnect all ribbons from drives to the mother board. If you can get to all of the screws that hold the motherboard into the case, you get away without removing drives. Once you've got the motherboard then you can disconnect the power cable from the motherboard. Remove the memory chips, disconnect the sound cable from the old motherboard. install the memory chips onto the new mobo, Connect the power cable to the new mobo, then install the new mobo into the case. Replace the ribbons from the drives to the mobo, replace the power cables to the drives and reinstall the sound cable to the cd or dv drive. You should be done now.

HI, I have an Acer Aspire AM5641-B5540A. THE SYSTEM IS COMPLETELY DEAD. i HAVE RULED OUT A BAD POWER SUPPLY. WHAT DO YOU THINK COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


Hi,
I understand now that you really checked out that power supply. Before we rule out a dead mobo, you should make sure the on off switch on the computer case is not broken.

Look on your mobo and find the power switch leads from your case power button to your mobo and remove them. Short out these two pins with a small screw driver and see if computer goes on.

If that fails, and you checked your memory and CPU, then well, R.I.P. motherboard.

Pavilion dv2125nr won't boot


it could be dead mobo, it's actually the most probable cause of your problem, but there is this thing i've encountered with HP several times already. i know it's a long shot, but i'd like you to try and boot the laptop up after you've removed the DVD-drive. if this works, it's the DVD-drive that's broken, if not, it'll be the mobo...

Don't mean to butt in here but I'll bet the 4 pin_ATX 12v connector is not connected to the board. That 4 pin_ATX 12v connector give's the CPU it's power. Without is the system will not boot. Some boards will give off that weird sound you are hearing.

Typacally with a dell they have a prepritary mobo plate that slids into the case but if the mobo is directly screwed to the case and you can take the mobo connector panel off the case then yes you can. If the mobo is on the plate then more than likely no unless ya get the same mobo from ebay or the like :-(

Blank screen, no asus logo or bios


Hi Cheers I myself had a motherboard like this, it's a great worker! I also service and repair these boards and one of the most problem is when using single RAM, put it's into the correct slot! please check the manual for this one, when moving these boards you need to take out the processor heat sink, some time if you may leave it, the board may get a hair-line crack due to heat sink leverage on the board
