Motherboard - CPU - Memory
Repairs / Replacement

Sadly the laptop motherboard is one of the most expensive laptop components, the other being the screen of course, other components such as the hard drive, optical drives, mains adapter are considerably cheaper.

It really is not surprising that it is so expensive when you consider what it actually contains, and of course there is no such thing as a standard motherboard, each one is specific to the laptop manufacturer and model.

If your laptop computer motherboard is faulty then you have a few options available to you, firstly are we sure that the actual board has a hardware problem?

Many so called hardware problems are simple to fix, or are actually software based, taking a few hours to confirm this can save you hundreds of pounds. This generally involves reseating any RAM and then installing the standard operating system.

Now we have ascertained that the laptop motherboard is actually faulty, firstly we will get some prices for a replacement motherboard.

Generally most repair companies idea of laptop motherboard repair involves replacing the motherboard, but if the fault is simply a connection issue, such as the socket where the power supply plugs in then this can be repaired.

Other points we check are, is the laptop still under warranty? This can be a an absolute godsend, even if you have purchased a second user machine its really worth checking this, companies such as Dell offer an online warranty status where you simply enter the laptops tag number and you see all of the warranty information, do not just presume because a laptop is more than a few years old it has no warranty.

If you are looking to upgrade a laptop computer motherboard to add a faster processor or more RAM, this is really a bad idea if we do not thoroughly look into the compatibility issues of this, even laptop motherboard revisions have differences such as different cable connectors, certain components may be different sizes causing the whole motherboard to have a different layout.
