Look at it from the point of view of the manufacturer. Having made thousands if not hundreds of thousand from the same mold/die, it would be more economically reasonable for them to replace the entire board rather than repair. The problem to the consumer is soon as warranty is over, the problem drops to your lap. Your conclusion of a manufacturing defect indicates that you have made a research and therefore would also have known the exact section/component causing this. Additional corrective measure other than replacing the board would be to "beef" up/upgrade/enhance that section/component, but this of course would require extensive knowledge of the electronics involved. If it were heat related, improve/increase forced air ventilation, if it were BIOS related, upgrade/downgrade to a more stable version, if it were performance related, set settings to default or in general downgrade usage but upgrade specs. Say originally Vista, back down to XP, use a docking station with additional blowers, add think heatsink on chipsets, and a few other "make do".

Since you have not posted the exact model/version the above of course would be generic.

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.

I need another mother board for gateway MX8711&the dead mother board tag is 1PA6A000128....i need it badly cos i cannot afford a new 1..

I see some listed on "ebay" right now.Here's the links: I would try "Mundo Corp". They have 2 MX8711 motherboards listed,although the part number is not the same as the one you specified.
However, it is common for manufacturers to produce identical items with different part numbers,often reflecting improvements or production runs.
I would check out Mundo corp,because the specialize in Gateway. here's the link to their website:

The cheapest place you will find a mother board is on eBay. Search for a mother board for your machine by searching with the service tag number or P/N number on the white tag on the back. You may find that it is cheaper to buy a used laptop on eBay rather than a mother board.

How much is the brand new mother board of acer 4520

Motherboards for laptops are generally not available to purchase. If you're having a problem with your laptop, send it to the Manufacturer and have it repaired or replaced.

If your laptop is out of warranty, you'll have to troubleshoot the problem down to which component is causing the problem. If the problem is related to the motherboard, you'll probably have to look into buying a new laptop.

Best of luck.

Laptop screen blank

I had the same problem with mine. I did end up solving the problem by having the laptop charing for many hours. However, it only lasted for a short time. I took my laptop in to the comp tech and it was the motherboard. I think it was caused from over heating. I am no computer expert, but I think the comp tech that told you that is right. I am not sure how old your laptop is, but mine was not very old and I rarely used it. I ended up having to purchase a laptop. I know this does not solve the problem, but at least you know that it does happen to others.

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.
