Replaced Failed Motherboard.. now how do I determine model number and which BIOS to download?

Q: Replaced Failed Motherboard.. now how do I determine model number and which BIOS to download?

Had an AMD HP G62-227CL laptop that overheated and required motherboard replacement with similar Intel motherboard. Old board clocked at 2.2 MHZ .. new one is 2.0 MHZ.
Board I got from Ebay works but now computer believes that it is a Compaq CQ42 Laptop. Do not know the model number, which I would need on HPs site to download BIOs upgrades.

Is there a way to tell which bios I need or what model I now have?

Thank you,

Preferred Solution: Replaced Failed Motherboard.. now how do I determine model number and which BIOS to download?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Replaced Failed Motherboard.. now how do I determine model number and which BIOS to download?

Finding a bios update rather then the one hp would give for this board. Would be next to none.
You could check a few of the support pages for this model. Which their are a lot Of
Maybe find out the motherboard you have bought.

My Lenovo T61 Thinkpad won't power up and I've been told that the motherboard is dead. I'd like to get a new mobo before dis-assembling the unit.

I think I made a mistake.
I replaced the motherboard on a HP Pavillion desktop. The motherboard is made by ASUS. I updated the BIOS (downloaded from HP); then I got the "purple code" ; so I proceeded to reinstall the original os that came with this computer; the message was some thing like "Can not install windows with these discs...etc."
The ASUS website is not helpful at all. I called the ASUS people, explain the problem and the only answer I got was "you should call hp or take it to a hp repair center.."
I would greatly appreciate any advise or suggestions on this frustrating issue. Thanks, Luis

I prefer to keep my machine off until ya give it the okay due changes to I can take photos of the bios technically uefi which it was before just not 4005. I got hit by rootki malware among others and lost control but it updated my bios to something since I am not admin(was removed). I can tell you some that has changed including major difference in overclocking and power it might have installes a dual operating system Linux as well. . I'd like to dump these potential threats. get back to factory or best working range on the hardware than more to other horrible mess that is my hard drive.

A:Motherboard drivers replaced with something greater custom or new bios? Crapwar

After a bit of research I found that I indeed am under underattack from at least a rootkit scvhost. I didn't understand what was happening but I had given the firewall blocks however it turned out I was being hijacked. I don't want to do any more damage most of the programs running I didn't even have on my computer before this. It must have access to my Asus suite which gives you the ability to change the settings of the motherboard. When I am on Windows it's installing driver hard ware(maybe from the changed bios settings) It changed all my drives to hotplugs and I am still not comfortable with the version numbers of the bios . If I gave it enough permission with the firewall changes and being able to change bios should I be worried about the amount of time I am in the system or just do safe mode?

A:Suggestions on how to determine what hardware needs to be replaced?

You could start by posting the details of the problem or problems you're having. If your video card, RAM, and processor were all broken, your computer wouldn't even power on.

Viruses are software problems and can either be fixed with software and configuration changes, or they can definitely be fixed by reinstalling Windows. Viruses don't damage hardware, and replacing hardware won't fix a virus problem.

If it doesn't have the version number, we could make you list your installed programs with MiniToolBox and look for "McAfee Framework". Usually, the version number is listed with the program name.

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.
The problem is that I am being told I am outside the 3-month repair warranty. I think this stinks! It's a known issue and I would like someone at Dell to step up make my expensive computer work normally all of he time.
Yes, I have run every diagnostic known to man and the internet.

How can I find what model number my Realtek AC97 sound card is so I can download the latest driver. I have everest but I can't find it in there either. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough? Or do I have to look on the actual sound card itself?

A:sound card model number

If it's integrated to the motherboard, it's easier to go to the motherboard's website & download the drivers there.

If not please let me identify my friend's Laptop model number.

Thanks in advance.

A:Don't know the Laptop Model Number Correctly.

The model number should be on the bottom of the laptop on a sticker, it may even be under the battery.

It may also show the model number in the BIOS, try F2 as soon as you turn it on.

I'm needing to reformat my laptop due to numerous software issues. Reinstalling Vista now, but I don't know my model number. I know the laptop is a Gateway, M series, and the model number is listed as 5A6. But that doesn't correspond to anything Gateway wants to pull up. I can't use the hardware tool from gateway as I don't have internet on it (it wasn't even booting anymore before).

Any help on how I can find the model number to get the necessary drivers would be hugely appreciated. I will answer any question I can to get this fixed.

Edit: Through the Gateway warranty lookup and the SNID, I was able to determine that the laptop is a M73. Wish it would say that ANYWHERE on the laptop itself, though...

A:Solved: Laptop model number

My HP Laptop died after 6 weeks. When I contact support, it asks for the model number. I input it: "15-ay041wm" Thats what the box and the laptop say. I get a reply that says "Sorry, too many results match your search for 15-1y041wm" So I try HP Notebook, I get the same mesaage as above except with HP Notebook" instead of "15-ay041wm" Since no matter where i go it wants the model number and I give it, I can't get help. No chat, no nothing.   So can someone tell me how to get support? If HP can't handle the model number of it's own computers, then I'm not very confident.

Does it includes Country Code/Month of Manufacture etc... Basically, while searching for Compatible Parts for my T460 here: , The 'Compatibility' section only list the FIRST Four letters of a particular system. Example below: ?    It seems  ALL models which start with 20FM and 20FN are compatible with this particular battery: 45N1773.

A:Tecra 8200 - Which notebook Model number do I have?

Your Tecra is simply Tecra 8200 and there is no other model number.
Drivers you can find on Toshiba download page under > Support & Downloads but under Product type you must choose option ARCHIVE.

Then you will find option for Tecra 8200.

What motherboard form Factor should I look for?

If I have a computer case how can I determine its motherboard form
factor. Is there way I can measure the case and then use a chart
to figure out the form factor?
Thank you,

A:Determine case Motherboard Form Factors?

From the spec sheet I found it says it is a "mini tower"

I would really just get a new case rather than attempt to reuse this one. This is for a few reasons;

1 OEM type cases are often proprietary ie they are not made to industry standard size; they are made to the OEM's specs.

2 OEM cases often have marginal airflow/cooling.

3 Because of reason #1, standard mb may not fit correctly or pci slots may not line up. In addition even if the boards are the same size, nothing guarantees that the mounting holes in the board are going to line up with the case stand-offs.

A:Replaced Motherboard

Yes, a new motherboard almost always requires a new activation. Only on a couple of rare occassions did I not have to reactivate.

And with motherboard changes, I usualy had to deal with the automated voice activation first, then go to a live person. It's usually a process that takes less than 5 minutes now.

A couple weeks ago my motherboard suddenly stopped working overnight. (I tested all of my other components with another (similar) computer and everything else was working fine.) I just finally got around to replacing the motherboard with an identical one. However, when it boots up it prompts me to select from Safe Mode/Last Known.../Star Windows Normally/etc.. If I choose Start Windows normally, it just freezes and nothing happens. If I choose Last Known Good Configuration, the screen turns all black and nothing happens. And if I choose one of the Safe Mode options, a list of filenames (I think) fill up the screen and then nothing happens.

The computer I used to test my parts also uses the exact same kind of motherboard, and I had no problem using my hard drive with that. Any thoughts? And thank you very much in advance.

My old motherboard stopped working, so while it's getting repaired, I decided to swap it with another one (different model). The problem is, Windows 7 won't boot anymore. I get a blue screen of death and the system keeps rebooting. Now I know replacing a motherboard with an old install is not a good idea, but I really need the files and programs I have on my hard drive. I don't want to do a fresh install either because I'll be putting back my old board once it's repaired. I tried a "automatic repair", but with no success. Am I out of options? The old board is an ASUS M4A78-PLUS and the new one is an ASUS M2N68-AM.

Any suggestion?

Are the BIOS settings on the new MB "in agreement" with the old MB BIOS?

If you ever get to a Win7 Boot Manager screen, run the Memory Diagnostics.

A:Motherboard being replaced

If they replace the motherboard with the same model then you shouldn't have any troubles.

I was chatting with a Lenovo technican and she says that the motherboard might need to be replaced because the charger port is integrated in the motherboard but that would be too expensive.Is there any otheer kind of way the charger port can be replaced or is that the only way?

A:Would my motherboard need to be replaced on my Len...

First, I must say that I have never taken one of that model apart.  I am just looking at the service manual.  It looks to me that the charging port is soldered to the motherboard, as you were told.  Sometimes, if you look at the port, you can figure out that it is similar to one on another model and if you can find a damaged motherboard with a good port, you can do an "organ transplant".  Very few shops do that kind of repair.  The shop would need to have a good rework station, the port and spend the time to disassemble and reassemble.  The repair might not be cheaper than the motherboard, but I cannot be sure without examining it.  Sorry.

I replaced my fic vc35 mother board in my hp pavilion 750uk desk top computer with one of the same spec but i can't load windows, it goes through the post sequence then displays the screen that says windows was not shutdown correctly " Start windows normally" Last known configuration that worked" e.t.c. I have tried several commands but none work. at the bottom of the screen a white broken band appears as if it's loading windows this turns solid and then thats how it remains.

Alright, my friend had his computer running one day when it died out on him so he took it to a computer repair store and they told him it needed a new motherboard. So he contacted the company and they send him a new motherboard under warranty.

He received it today and I replaced it all and everything is connected correctly...The motherboard is a DFI LanParty UT.

So I fully install it and have everything connected and power it on and it beeps...

Beep is like this
2-3 seconds of beep
7 seconds of slience
2-3 seconds of beep

Continues to do that forever.

All the fans power up but it just beeps and no video.

Thank You for your help,
