Motherboard destroyed by lightning

My Acer Aspire computer got struck by lighting and it fried the motherboard and possibly the processor. The problem I am encountering is I can not seem to find another motherboard that is compatiable.The model is Acer Aspire T135. Any suggestions on where to look online or a store that might carry a motherboard that would work with this system?
Thanks in advance

I'm located in New Zealand and purchased a motherboard for my T135 from Possibly and other trading sites could be helpfull.

If its any help the motherboard I purchased was a Winfast core series 760GXK8MC-RS. That supports an AMD Socket 754 cpu.

It seems to have done the trick but by the looks of it after replacing the motherboard I will have to install a new operating system as the orignal Windows XP was an OEM version (which means that it was pre-installed on the hard drive) and the recovery discs won't work with the new motherboard installed.

I neeed a USER Manual for ACER MB.SE109.002 Aspire Desktop Board Motherboard

I believe what you are asking for, is a Motherboard Manual, for the motherboard used in an Acer Aspire M5400 desktop computer,

Not available.

The motherboard is made FOR Acer, by a motherboard manufacturer.
In this case the manufacturer does not supply information.
Acer does.



With the above information you can see;

1) Processor Support.

2) Uses a Socket AM3 processor socket,

[ Look at the list of AMD Phenom II, and Athlon II, processors.
Now look at this chart, {Scroll down},

Now look at the processor socket used for these processors. Scroll the page down, compare using the charts ]

3) The motherboard chipset is an AMD 880G,

Here you see more information on what the motherboard supports.

4) The Ram Memory used is DDR3 Sdram, at either 1066MegaHertz, or 1333MHz.
(That is PC3-8500, and PC3-10600, respectively)

The Maximum TOTAL Amount for the motherboard is 8GB.
There are 4 Ram Memory slots.
The Maximum Amount for EACH one is 2GB.

O/S = Operating System.
Windows XP, and Windows 7, are two examples of an O/S.

With a 32-bit O/S, the maximum amount of Ram Memory that will be recognized, is 3-1/2 GigaByte. (3.5GB)

You have to have a 64-bit O/S for above 3.5 GB.
(8GB? You need a 64-bit O/S)

ALSO, don't just use any Ol' DDR3 ram memory.

I doubt you can go into BIOS Setup, and change the Voltage, and ram timings, for a high-performance ram memory.

In otherwords 'gamer' ram memory.

JEDEC sets a standard for Ram Memory.

One of the standards is the Voltage. Standard default voltage set for your motherboard by JEDEC, for the Ram Memory, is 1.5 Volts. (DC)

MAXIMUM voltage is 1.575

That Acer board is not capable of handling DDR3 high-performance ram memory, that will exceed 1.5 volts.

(Probably isn't a BIOS upgrade either)

What is it that you seek? Post back in a Comment.

Nothing works.

Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

On board lan & pci slots are not working . on board lan also not showing in device manager.

Was the board recently struck by lightning? I've had several problems where lightning struck the motherboard through the lan ports, while not destroying the board itself, but just the lan port, and usually not showing up in device manager gives it away.

You will have to replace the motherboard if this is the case

Hit by Lightning

No Mother board is compatable.
The Motherboard and hard drive are paired and cannothe be replaced.
The best thing to do is to buy a new computer and use the Harddrive as a slave on the new one.

My computer is dead

This will be like a needle in a haystack. It could of fried the board, the processor, the hdd and so on, unless you are equiped with all sorts of spares, i would put the responsibility on a local repairer, but that's not to say they won't charge you for every part until the come to the faulty part themselves.
