Well to be honest with you bud; you're probably going to save money just replacing it with a newer machine.

Laptops are built a lot different then modern desktops are. Instead of having PCI and PCX style expansion slots; everything is basically built onto the motherboard. Some laptops even have the CPU's integrated onto the motherboard instead of having a slot or socket for them.

If you're still wanting to switch out motherboards; the biggest thing is finding one that will fit. Most likely; you'll have to find one from the same model of computer.

As for the changing process; it's a little difficult as you have to take just about every screw out of a laptop to remove the motherboard. The machines are built around the motherboard in this way to reduce size and make the PC lighter and smaller for the user.

I hope this helps you out a little buddy.

How To Recycle your Computer

<span>Computers sure are handy when they are working but once they've chewed their last byte, things can get a little messy. Toxic chemicals, carcinogens and heavy metals are all part of what makes their clocks tick, and improper disposal can bring them all a little too close for human comfort. Computer recycling is nothing new, but getting your old electronics to the great motherboard in the sky can be tricky to do responsibly. For years, developed countries have been exporting tons of electronic waste for inexpensive, labor-intensive recycling and disposal, mostly to China. It's been illegal to import e-waste into China for dirty recycling and dumping since 2000, but smuggling, corruption and China's appetite for scrap keep it coming. One of the best ways to get clean recycling is simple: just ask questions. A reputable recycler should be able to tell you where hardware is sent, and if the company exports or uses prison labor. The recycler should also be able to tell you how it handles data destruction; you'll want the recycler or reuse organization to wipe the hard drive for you so any personal information doesn't end up where it doesn't belong. If you are donating your equipment to a reuse organization, ask if equipment is tested before it is passed on for donation and if the company only ships working equipment. Ask who their recipient organizations are. If the answer to any of these questions is, "We don't know," or, "We can't tell you," it may be time to send your equipment elsewhere.<br /> One of the easiest options is to use your computer manufacturer's recycling program, though most major manufacturers charge fees and require you to do the packing and shipping. The <a href="">Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition</a>, a good guide to responsible recycling, finds many of the manufacture take-back programs wanting and publishes a <a href="">report card</a> on the environmental effectiveness of most of them.<br />The <a href="">Rethink Program</a>, hosted by eBay has a good computer recycling FAQ section and many useful links to recyclers, as do <a href="">CompuMentor</a>'s Tech Soup site and the EPA's<a href="">eCycling</a> website. Be aware, though, that the recyclers listed on these sites have not been vetted or approved by these organizations in any way. The Basel Action Network also carries a list of electronics recyclers that have <a href="">signed their stewardship pledge</a>, under which recyclers agree not to export e-waste or add it to landfill, or use prison labor, and to document where equipment, parts and materials go.<br />If your machine still functions (and not just as a paperweight), then seeing that it is reused is perhaps the best option. Companies like <a href="">RetroBox</a> and <a href="">FreeGeek</a> build computers out of salvaged parts; the latter has a <a href="">list of like-minded organizations</a> that can be a good starting place for recycling or reusing your machine. <br /> <br /><a href=""></a></span>

I'm into 2nd day of free trial of System Mechanic. My recycle bin is no longer on my desktop and not to be found anywhere. Also the toolbar it was on is gone. I have W7

To get your recycle bin back, right click on the desktop space. Click on "personalize". In the window that appears, click on "Change desktop icons" on the left side menu. Check recycle bin, click ok.

The tool bar was most likely a Windows gadget. Once again right click on desktop space, click on "gadgets". In its window you should see what you want returned and you can just double click on it.

Deleted stuff from recycle bin

Unfortunately no, once the recycle bin is deleted, it removes the files entirely. If the files are very important to you, there's a small chance that they could still be retrieved, but you would have to seek assistance from a Data Recovery service specialist in your area. There are some programs out there that you could purchase as well, that may be able to recover deleted files as well, and would be much cheaper than a data recovery service would, but there's also no guarantee through either of those methods if the results would be successful. My only suggestion at this point, if you want to increase the chances of the data being recovered, is to try and keep your computer as unused as possible, don't add or remove files, don't put stuff in the recycle bin. The reason I say this, is that files, even after their deleted, may leave remnant information behind on the hard drive platters themselves, and if you overwrite those specific sectors with more information, the leftovers usually get written over as well, thus being lost for good. Hope this helps!

Motherboard issues

If you have an external monitor available, connect your laptop to it and start the machine. It would not start and shutoff if the motherboard was failing. It would not power at all or would turn on a display an error, with some beeps. By plugging into the ext monitor, you can amke sure this is not a video problem and watch it boot, until it gets to the error, which is probably a Windows Blue Screen.

Power supply

Possible but unlikely. You can try reseating the memory. I've seen that work before.

A few other suggestions:
-look around and see if there are any loose cables
-make sure the power cord is all the way in the outlet, no prongs showing
-look for the cable that connects the power button on the case to the motherboard and make sure it's connected.
-it's possible that the motherboard might be shorting out on something. Look for anything obvious and then, using an anti-static wrist strap to ground yourself first, loosen the screws that hold the motherboard in place. The last one I built, the board was screwed onto the stand-offs too tight and it was shorting out on the case.
