Re: mother board crashed
Most likely replacing your motherboard will cost a ton of money (either the part, or the work and labor will cost a lot) . It would probably cost less to buy a used laptop with the same specs: http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-satellite-m115-s3094-core-duo-laptop_W0QQitemZ250273284600QQihZ015QQcategoryZ177QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem If your laptop is under warranty, disregard what I just said, but if it isn't I would sell your broken laptop on ebay, and buy a new or used one.
If you want to keep your old data, you can just swap out your hard drive.

In order that I can help you, I will need the Name of the computer, the Model Number, the fabricator of the Mother Board, the number of the particular unit. You will find the info. on the MB around the PCI sockets in the bottom side of the MB or around the RAM memory sockets on top right of the board. Thank you for considering our service. My name is Constantin (arzconst)
When you first load the PC get ready to press the Pause key. As soon as you get display press the pause key. You should be able to see the Name & model number of your board. Write that down & post that information here. Or is the name "Mercury" & the model " PVCLE266"? This is listed on you're post above the statement " Lost mother board drivers"? If you are able to get into you're bios's main menu. Some bios's list the model number under system information.
