    Probably wasn't the Motherboard. Just generated more money for the tech, and shop from the computer manufacturer. Could be a $4.99 Power On switch, or the Power Supply. Problem is this computer is still under warranty. You have to let the 'Boo-b' do his/her thing, to keep under the warranty agreement. (There is a test to see whether it is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply. Feel technically inclined?) [ Goes inside the plastic Power On button, ]

If you just had it replaced I'd recommend calling the manufacturer again as it is probably still under some type of warranty. Maybe ask them if they can replace the whole machine this time so it does not happen again?

Why does my computer keep crashing? I have an acer ASL-100-UD360Athat shuts down and says kernal-data-inpage-error then it starts dumping phsical memory and reboots. . I bought this computer from radishack...

With so many service calls for the same or similar problems, it would appear that another component in the system is burning out your motherboard and DVD drive. I'm willing to bet that your power supply is the issue.
If it is still under warranty, send it back and make that suggestion. Otherwise seriously consider a new computer. If you have to pay for repairs on this one, you will end up buying a new motherboard and a new power supply.

My Laptop DV6000EU in Aug 2007. Warrenty on Mother board

it should be under waranty seeing that the motherboard is malfunctioning again. normally the hardware will go out before the motherboard and seeing that its the same problem again mark the motherboard in a nice little place with a marker to insure they are not doing a repair and giving you back the same faulty board.

New Vizio tv shuts off after June switchover

Well, your TV is no doubt under warranty. The only reason I can thing of why they want you to use a DVD player is to find out if the Digital Tuner inside the TV is the source of the problem.
They need to replace the Digital tuner board or the main mother board. Either way, they have to come out to your house to replace a part.
Just keep hammering them of the warranty coverage.

Freezer defrosting itself?

They refuse to admit to a sticking defrost. check mother board, LCD boards (2), retrofit air way (known defect). And don't take no for an answer.

Further on the GTS22WC problem....

The GE refridgerators are known for bad mother boards (or circuit boards). The relay gets carbon tracking and causes arcing until it finally burns out. I am a mechanical engineer and I work with an electrical engineer. Our GE fridges went out in the same week. A place called appliance parts pros dot com had our parts in stock and we could order through the net on their website. The part is roughly 150.00 including shipping. By the way, your unit started working again because the relay is making contact temporarily. It will fail again.
