2 components knocked off

What a klutz, I destroyed 2 components on my mother board, they measure out to be capacitors (because of the charge and discharge charactoristics) not positive what the values could be stamped on top are these: 10 16S. A75 there are only 2 of these on the board, could you possibly help in identifying them or directing me to a schematic? They are in the corner by the PCI slots. Thanks Tom

My ibm laptop's mother board cannot power on, please help me solve it

The most likely problem is that the onboard power supply has failed, usually a capacitor has burned out. Or it could be a loose DC supply socket (they only need to have one loose pin on the motherboard.)

Intel d915GLVG mother board vrm is short and fun dose not work

An electrolytic capacitor has failed.
If one has failed it indicates that the board has overheated, and many other components are also weak.
This Intel board is not of good quality.
Replace with SuperMicro or Tyan, and improve the cooling airflow in the case.

Replacing capacitors on a motherboard

Don't touch it!! Motherboards are multi-layer and are fitted with surface-mount components-you need a proper solder-desoldering station
and loads of soldering experience otherwise you'll just destroy the board. Also, where are you going to source the components from?
It'll cost you more than the board's worth to have it professionally done too...just treat yourself to a new board is my honest opinion.
Best Regards,

My computer is not working and i ask some technicians and they said that it might be the board im an electronics student what may be the first part of the board that is destroyed

the most likely candidate for an issue with electronics can be the capacitors going bad. you'll notice them bulging or even looking burnt or have a strange looking substance on them. The chemical reaction inside the capacitor that holds the charge releases hydrogen gas. If this builds up too much it can cause these to basically "pop." I would check those first. After that start looking for anything that looks burnt.

I have intel 845 GVSR mother board in that some capacitor are week i want replace it but i not getting same value capacitor. The capacitor value is 820mfd/6.3 v. Please suggest equalant value


may I ask how did you know the capacitors are already weak? Do they look bloated and acid just came out?

The value of 820 mfd must not be changed, The value of voltage can be increase at 10 volts maximum!

Usually i go for the parts in my local computer shop where you could get theparts taken from a dead board!

Hope thats helps you out!

Intel E210882 video issues Had a dual vid card...lost it. onboard vid does not work. power supply 100% no blown capacitors I can see. other pci vid cards do not work. no sounds or beeps...just wont work....

The possibility that the video setting in the bios is blocking your video seems to be what could be wrong.
To reset the bios, turn off all power to the board or remove the power cord from the power supply. Find the bios and the jumper next to it, short the jumper for a few seconds, then replace the jumper to it's original position, and then try the computer with a pci video card.

I did some research on the Internet for this board. It seems that the cpu can have video problems, and if that is the case, you will never make video work unless you change the cpu.

Possible fix: Either change the cpu, if that is the problem, or change the mother board to another one which can fit or is a replacement for yours.
you may find a replacement of either one that fits or one which is an exact replacement on Ebay. Do a search for the board you desire. Prices vary, and are not too expensive considering. Prices are from a few $$ to over $50.00. Get one which is known to work correctly and try to get a cpu at the same time, if that is your final choice. One example on Ebay

My suggestion, if I had to do this would be to get another mother board with a cpu which will fit this computer, then re-install what is needed and make the operating system work. A complete restore should not be necessary, if you change the mother board, but many things will have to be re-installed.
A note: It may be a good idea to back up your boot drive on another computer and set it as a slave drive. This way you can save any data which may be destroyed when you re-install, if it is necessary to do that.
Remember, a Windows OS in which you have saved a lot of data to "my documents" will be all removed, and destroyed should you need to re-install any of the operating system. That is why you should consider to backup your original data before starting a new mother board.

Motherboard of my T3958 E-machine was destroyed by a power surge. Want to replace it with a stronger more effiecient one, but don't know the measurements of the first one.

simply replace it with a motherboard of micro ATX form factor. that should fit most system chasis. Most mother boards these days come in that size

Battery will not charge, but will use AC when plugged into jack. Battery is known good.Suspect component adjacent to jack was damaged during repair. What are values of the ''RV'' components near it?

This is like sending me to the moon, without a map. We will gladly provide you with what you want, if you can provide us with the following information. The Mother Board is not the only part of the computer. So, we need: (1) Manufacturer's Name and Trade Name of the Computer; (2) Model Name and Number; (3) The identification number of the mother Board;
If you cannot find it printed on the MB, we can help you.
Thank you for your consideration and choice of using oue service. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)
