Hi,

Laptop motherboards are replaceable though a bit tricky putting the laptop back together.

Options would include:
1. getting in touch with Acer Australia, email>customer.service@acer.com.au, Phone: 02 8762 3000, 02 8762 3264; Fax: 02 9764 2368; Address: 5 Figtree Drive, Australia Square, Homebush Bay NSW 2127;
2. look for an online supplier such as Notebook Solutions. They do exchange repair;
3. buy a new board from eBay such as this one here;
4. send in your laptop for repair like here.

Cost probably looking at anywhere from a little less than 200 to a little more than 300 Aus$ excluding shipping.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Try contacting Acer, but you may find the cost of replacement parts makes replacement uneconomical.

I have a acer aspire m1640, with the motherboard fails, if i can not fix it, what motherboard, acer apart, can i mount it? thank you


There are a few options you have on this, but if you want to maintain full compatibility with your current hardware, then you must purchase a motherboard that supports DDR2 533/667 MHz SDRAM since that is what comes standard in Acer Aspire M1640 Desktops.
A few options that would be similar to stock motherboard would be:
Foxconn G31MXP-K I7 or Biostar TForce TG31-A7
Those motherboards have similar specs to the stock motherboard and you can take a look at the specs of the Acer Aspire M1640 from this link below:
http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireM1640/AspireM1640sp2.shtml
Both those motherboards I have linked you too are microATX boards, which should fit fine in your case which may be a standard ATX case.
If you are willing to upgrade your ram, then your options open up to any motherboard that supports the Intel Pentium Dual Core processor. Since the stock motherboard also provides onboard video, chances are you don't have a video card plugged into your motherboard (unless you've upgraded that yourself) which means you should also look for a motherboard that provides onboard video so you don't have to purchase a video card.


Good luck!

I have acer aspire laptop purchased from dabs feb 2007 hard drive crashed 2 weeks out of warranty, i have put in new hard drive, how much would it cost to puirchase the discs for operating system serial...


Hi,

If your Aspire laptop has a Microsoft sticker at the bottom with the Product Key, it is not necessary for you to re-purchase CD installer of the Operating System. You could try borrowing from friends their XP Pro CD installers or even an OEM and simply use that. When asked for the CD key, use what is printed in the aforementioned sticker.

As long as the motherboard/entire machine is not replaced, then this would be an acceptable alternative. Should you still wish to purchase an Windows XP Pro SP2 installer CD, it would roughly cost USD 60.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

AGP Video slot


the DDR doesn't matter.

your motherboard has a AGP x8 port, most if not all cards for agp will work!

buy a AGP x8 card. - I have no idea what you mean with series 1 or 2, that has never come up within the 10 years I've worked with computers.


You can learn about the AGP port here
