A:eMachines motherboard replacement

Dead and not worth replacing, as the restore disks will likely not work.
The motherboard is a known failure, and is actually a 6 year oild board.
ASRock boards are low cost and work, as are many others from the online stores... but you also have to get the right CPU, CPU cooler, power supply, memory, for that board, and make the external plugs fit the case.
You can look at the motherboard specs on line at,,,,,, and many others... and you will immediately see how complex the order is in matching up everything.
You are probably best off asking a local guru, High School or College Kid with a high interest in computers. Give it to them for a couple of weeks, and let them get it right for you.
The hard drive, memory, and optical drive are still good... but matching them up takes some work, and we would have to see the board setup and CPU to be sure.

i'm new to hardware replacement and the motherboard on my emachines failed. how do i figure out exactly what i need for replacement? current mother board has 2.5 ghz celeron processor. any advice would be great.

A:emachines T2596 motherboard replacement

Welcome to techspot.
Your system should have a socket 478 intel processor and ddr memory.
Your system likely uses a micro atx board, as many prebuilt systems do.
Here's a board that should be compatible with your current parts.

I've used this board, and think it's pretty nice. It should be much better than your current one though, as it supports cpus with up to a 800mhz fsb, including prescott cores and cpus with intel's ht tech(your celeron is a 400fsb), ddr memory up to pc3200 speed, (your ram is pc2100), and it also has an agp slot, so if you'd ever need faster video(for gaming etc), you can add in a graphics card. The board also has integrated graphics like your current board, so you wouldn't need to buy a graphics card if you don't want the extra expense.

The hardest part of replacing the board though will be getting the new motherboard connected to the pc case you have, specifically the power button, usb, and leds. I'm not exactly sure how your pc case is setup, but it likely can be connected to the motherboard. You probably will want to/have to reinstall windows after the replacement, since the motherboard is different. It might be possible to do a repair install of xp and keep your data intact.

If you want an exact replacement board, try searching ebay for your pc's model number and "motherboard".

Hope this helps.

Im fixin to upgrade my computer and i will also be upgrading the mobo too. I was looking at the asus p4pe board but then i found out about that "cold boot" problem where after the computer has been off for a few hours it wont boot back up. Now im looking at the gigabyte GA-8PE667. It is also based on the PE chipset. It looks like a good buy to me. Im trying to stay in the $100-$120 range. Is the GA-8PE667 a good board to buy or is there a better one then that for the same price? Any opinions??

Thanks for the help!

I was looking for a motherboard to replace my old biostar motherboard that will only support 2 gigs 667mhz, and only overclocks my e5200 up to 3 ghz even when maxing out the voltage. I am on a very tight budget, and this Msi board caught my attention

Then I checked the MSI website to get more information on this board

This board catches my attention because....

Its New
Its a Micro Atx with the Pci express x1 below the Pci express 2.0
Drmos Really caught my attention because it states that it makes the board energy efficent, offers a lower tempature and a more stable overclocking enviorment

Do you think its a good budget motherboard for a gamer and an overclocker like me??

rather than destroy a good new motherboard, I would seriously recommend reading some books on building computers. There is more to it than can be simply addressed in a blog.

Swapping out a motherboard will also require reloading of your operating system. This is also assuming your other components weren't fried by your PSU.

You can usually resolve this by calling Microsoft at the number difficult to find on their website. Do not tell them more than they need to know.
Microsoft's official position is that the license dies when the motherboard dies. They can usually tell which computer the install was meant for... But we know a number of people who have been able to give them the details of the license tag on the computer (they may ask for any of those number sets) and get going again after being told it is a repair.
The eMachines T-2685 has the highest failure rate of any desktop computer made in the past six years due to the bad motherboard.
But you will get nowhere without the phone call, as there is no online way to resolve the issue.

A:Emachines motherboard question

Although the motherboard may be an exact duplicate, the serial # is not. Part of the verification process is checking the serial #. Once you swap motherboards, windows should recognize a change and refuse to cooperate. Part of this "repair" process M$ is talking about it re-registering the machine. Follow M$ directions. Windows XP is only licensed and configured for one motherboard at a time.

Also when E-crap machines blow their power supplies they generally take out the motherboard as well. You can get a 350W psu for around $40

A:Upgrade motherboard in emachines pc

Normally when you swap MB's it would be best to re-install windows , Drivers etc.XP may make you re.register because of the significant hardware change.
There are many other drivers than just the IDE controller to consider.
Also Emachines are not the most upgrade friendly.I would first go to their Web and see what they support for this upgrade.
Let us know what you learn their.
You cannot use another XP disk as your oem license will not be accepted by it.

A:Emachines T2482 Motherboard Burning up

Chances are it's the power supply. there are two common faliure modes for e-machines and both lead to a failed psu (1. PSU overvolts and takes out the motherboard, 2. Motherboard shorts out and takes out PSU). Since e-machines uses cheap PSUs with poor protection they will still run when they are "Bad" but they will fry anything connected to them. Other components could have been fried by the initial failure but the damage is usually limited to the PSU and motherboard.
Any of these PSUs would work well for that system (and they are good quality)

Also E-machines motherboards are failure prone and non-e-machines motherboards will require a new copy of windows (about $100) to work. Your best bet may be to build/ buy a new system perticuarily given the age and specs of that machine. $350 could build a system that will run circles around that computer useing decent components. (Just someting to consider)

A:Replacing eMachines T6420 motherboard

It sounds like your new motherboard or powersupply may be bad. There is also the possibility that other components (CPU, RAM) may have been damaged depending how the old board failed. Was it just leaking caps or did it fail catastrophically (sparks, smoke, exploding caps, etc.)? Of course double check all connections and make sure all components are seated properly in their slots/sockets. Also what PSU did you get (is it OEM or aftermarket and if aftermarket please give brand, model, and rating on the various rails). Also was the "new" motherboard actually new or a used/refurbished one?

A:Emachines T2692 problem, ps or motherboard, does not start

Given it's an Emachine probably both.Unfortinutally Emachines especially older ones have cheap under rated powersupplies with no overvoltage protection. These power supplies tend to die after 2 or 3 years and take the motherboard and sometimes other components with them.
First replace the powersupply and if that doesn't work replace the motherboard.

I inherited an eMachines W2247 (AM37 mobo) because of a "blank display" problem, and hoped that I could install a video card.

How do I disable the onboard video? Is there a jumper on the mobo (I can't see one), or do I have to disable the onboard video in the BIOS? Of course, without a display, I can't access the BIOS.

I visited eMachines web site, but there is no help there.

I know that I will probably have to replace the mobo ($139.95), as this would be more cost effective than purchasing a new PC.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Try clearing the cmos(bios), ussualy a jumper very near the battery on the MoBo. If needed remove the battery for about 10 mins...
No jumper I'm aware of to disable onboard video, should be in the bios.

A:Solved: Replaced emachines motherboard. XP wont boot or install

The drivers installed on that hard drive as part of the Windows installation would most certainly be for the motherboard on that 2842. While you can successfully boot Windows with drivers missing or incorrect (e.g., for a wireless adapter), I think that the motherboard includes some critical components--no drivers, no boot. I think that you will need to install (with or without a format) from a Windows CD. I do not know what that restore disc is, so can't comment directly on it.

I want to replace my p4 3.0 ghz processor because I just bought a geforce 7800GS trying to prolong my AGP motherboard and read somewhere that the p4 would be bottelnecking my video card's performance rather harshly.

My motherboard is an Albatron PX865PE Pro
I'd like to stay under the $200 range on the new cpu, thank you.

All thats written on the motherboard that I can see is this: Mot No 115601 COGNAC 20000731

Hello: I have changed out everything in an emachines ET1161-05 built in 2007 I believe. So its all new again. However I had purchased from a pawn shop this machine fitted with a soundblaster live in its modem slot. And the darn thing was playing in stereo. The motherboard finally bought the farm, and I replaced it with a new motherboard that only gets sound out of the rear green plug in. This is suppose to be normal I was advised by a local computer shop and that the motherboard can only play mono unless a rather inexpensive usb sound splitter is attached what has two plugins for two separate sound channels. Does anybody know if that motherboard was suppose to play stereo and I was shipped a defectve replacement. Or was the half fried motherboard shorting out and sending power thru the modem slot and somehow reaching the sound card? The motherboards are both Ht2000, product of China.

Hi all.

I need to replace my current Asus P5ND2-SLI Motherboard which died recently. I have already spent what seems like endless money on other components recently, so need a reasonably priced replacement to get up and running again.

My CPU is a Intel 3Ghz Dual Core (D) and the RAM is DDR2 6400. Board is LGA775 socket for IntelĀ® Pentium 4/Celeron CPU
Compatible with IntelĀ® 6XX, 5XX and 3XX processors.

It needs to be PCI-E as well. Now, I am clueless with most PC hardware, and there seems to be a ton of options on somewhere like, so some advice would be really helpful!

The Motherboard in my Gateway is burned, according to BestBuy Geek Squad. It is the KTBC51G-LF. I would like to replace it myself and have found a replacement on-line for over $200. That seems too expensive.

My question is; do they make replacements for the original manufactored part? that would be cheaper. Or maybe used, refurbished parts? Does anyone know where I can find such parts?


A:Motherboard Replacement

You need to look at the motherboard you have and find out the manufacturer and model number. It should be silk screened on the motherboard. It is very possibly an ECS or PcChips motherboard, as Gateway and Emachines (same company) are famous for using. And see if you can find one new at New Egg or some place like that.

Taking a computer to the Geek Squad is not a recommended thing. Often they do inferior work and frequently talk people into letting them make repairs that are not necessary and sometimes do not work.

To make a long story short, I have a Gateway computer in which I found to have a bad motherboard. I have purchased a used Asus P4 motherboard/2.4 mhz CPU combo to breathe life back into her. The hard drive already has Windows XP Home installed on it and I would like to continue using everything currently installed on the hard drive, as well as the operating system already in place, as is. Realizing that Windows XP Home is going to find LOTS of new hardware installed when I finally boot this thing up, what is the best approach to this upgrade? I do have the driver disk for the board on hand. Should I simply boot it up and let it search for the drivers on the CD, or is this going to be a much more difficult upgrade? Does anyone have any suggestions outside this approach? Thanks, a bunch, in advance!

Thank you for your help

A:Motherboard replacement

Basically any socket 775 micro Atx board will fit but will it boot? You have to see if the front jumpers (power, reset, hard drive led etc are one plug or a series of loose wires to attach because if it is one plug, you will never get it to start. The other issue is change the board and you have to buy Windows as you cannot use the HP restore disks on a new motherboard which won't contain the bios switch to allow that and is illegal anyway.

A:Possible motherboard replacement

Here's the Manual: Service Manual If you try to go Intel you will need to buy a motherboard, and a processor and a heatsink/fan.  If you go AMD all you need is the motherboard since your cooling fan/heatsink can be ported over, and the processor is soldered to the board.  This is the motherboard you want: System board (includes replacement thermal materials): For use only with models with an AMD A6-5200 processor ? Models with Windows 8 Standard 730670-501 ? Models with Windows 8 Professional 730670-601 I am going to assume you have Windows standard.  HP does not have the A6 AMD board in the store....they only have the A4 board and it is stupid expensive: Since you do not have one to exchange, it is going to cost close to $500. I can find you a good used Intel 250 G1 for that price.  You can find the board for $67 on eBay: I know you wanted something a bit more powerful but the A4 will be a major improvement over what you have. The seller laptopaid, is one of the best on eBay for this kind of thing. I can't count how much stuff I have purchased from them.  Post back if you need any more help. The Manual shows just how to replace the motherboard. Port your fan, memory, wireless card over. You will have to reinstall original Windows but the motherboard has a Key Code embedded in the BIOS and will just activate. If your hard drive still has the original HP install it should activate itself when first connected to the internet but be prepared if necessary to do a system restore. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:Motherboard replacement help !

It is a faster configuration compared to your current Pentium 4 PC and the graphics support is light years ahead compared to your old Intel 845 graphics controller. You can use the stock heatsink/cooler that comes with the APU which is sufficient. But one thing you should keep in mind that the configuration is pretty basic and wont perform great on demanding applications and can be used best for light load usage like word processing, Internet browsing etc. Since the AMD APU had good graphics hardware you can enjoy HD videos too without issues. For such a low price it is a worthy replacement if you cant go with a more capable hardware like Core i3 platform which costs close to 3 times than the Combo you said. Also add 8 GB of DDR3 RAM to make sure every thing perform maximum possible.

My friend has a Compaq SR1000 that uses a 939 socket motherboard. The motherboard stopped working a while ago. My question is, can I pick out any 939 socket motherboard that I can find on Ebay to replace the non working motherboard?

A:Motherboard replacement?

Most likely no. Big box systems like dell, hp, etc use proprietary parts. That is they are made to the system builders specs NOT standard atx type specs.

While a standard atx type board might "work" it may also have problems lining up with the existing case.

FWIW socket 939 is pretty old technology and IMO NOT worth putting any money into. In addition ebay is about the last place to buy parts.

Unfortunately you will probably need to. If you replace your motherboard XP will reconize this as a new piece of hardware and you may even be required to purchase a new license.

It's a trap. You can probably use almost any Am2 motherboard but if you don't buy it from HP where it will be at least 4 times what it is worth, then you will wind up buying a new copy of Windows because your restore disks will only work with an HP supplied motherboard. So you can see what they have but most likely you will be better off using the components, buying a new case, motherboard and copy of Windows.

Hello. I have a custom-built computer with a Gigabyte GA-KN8SC-939 motherboard with a Athlon64 3500+ processor. The motherboard had been having problems starting about a few years ago with random crashes occurring whenever devices were plugged in to now crashing and freezing up on a regular basis. I suspected it was the motherboard (no other devices were having problems, and the memory wasn't faulty), so I believe I need to replace the motherboard. However, knowing the age of this computer, I don't know if it's possible. Do you guys know of a motherboard that would have performance similar to this one and also work with a Socket 939 Athlon64 3500+ processor?

A:Need help a replacement motherboard

About the only place you will find a 939 board these days is ebay or at a computer shop that deals in used hardware. For less than $150 you can get an AM3 board Athlon II X2 and 4GB DDR3 If you want to go that route.
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz
Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AM3
RAM:Crucial 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

This is very basic question, but I am not too knowledgable about motherboards.

I am replacing my motherboard this weekend due to dead L2 cache and was wondering if I had to get the exact same board, or if I could use something comprable. My board is a DFI K6bV3+ Rev A+ for a K6-2 300mhz - AT Socket 7.

Can I just use any AT Socket 7 board? Of course, I would also make sure that it takes the memory that I already have, plus has the correct slots for all of my cards.

A:Which replacement motherboard?

You are not going to find any new socket A type boards any longer. If you want to stay with that cpu, then you would need to buy one used. You might find a deal on an old board from a local shop OR you can try ebay. One big problem is that boards from that era, almost all used the same bad caps. If you do find one, you may have the same problem down the road.

FWIW I would just get a modern motherboard, cpu, ram, and pw supply and be done with the issue. Note unless you buy a board with onboard video, you will need a new video card as well.

I have an Hp Pavilion laptop whose warranty period has expired.Few days ago,it got shut down and never started again.At the service centre,I learnt that the motherboard of the laptop is faulty and needs replacement.Can I get my motherboard replaced?If yes,then what could be the costs involved to get a new motherboard if my PC has an Intel i5 4th generation processor?Will HP company replace the part at the authorized service centre?

A:HP motherboard replacement

Yes HP will do paid out of warranty service but it is very expensive. Your best bet is to procure the motherboard and either do it yourself, which I understand most people do not want to do or take it to a local independent service shop. Expect the whole thing to cost perhaps $200-300. HP would charge at the top end if that range or perhaps slightly more. I do not speck for them however so you should call. They will quote you a price for motherboard replacement. If you want to try self-help post back and we can locate you a motherboard but we will also need to know the country you live in,

Wondering if anyone has come across this motherboard before:
"Kobian PVM890M 1.0"

I purchased a number of clone PC's in an auction for schools in Africa, and some of them have been diagnosed with Faulty Motherboards, and these PC's are fitted with this motherboard.

Running Windows XP Pro

I would like to replace these motherboards, using the same Processors and Memory that came with the PC's.
I am told the Processor fitted is "Socket Type", and the Power Supply that goes on the motherboard has "10 pins".
Could anyone help identify the type of MotherBoard, which replacement type should I be looking for, and if anyone can point me in the direction of a source of supply for this,

Grateful thank you.

Hi all,
I have recently had hardware failure in my DIY PC (most likely the motherboard).
I have taken it to a repair shop to have it diagnosed and was wondering if I could get some suggestions for a new motherboard if it turns out to be that.
I use my PC for heavy gaming as well as geometric map design and need a reliable (relatively cheap) board that is capable of supporting the hardware I am currently using (9800gt asus overclocked) pentium 2 2.8ghz processor.
asus Xonar D2x Audio (pcie).
It should also be noted that my old motherboard was a socket 775. (and the new one should be the same).
Can you reccomend one without an nforce chipset as well as these seem to be useless.
Thanks for your responses

I have a Dell XPS/Dimension XPS Gen 2 computer that needs a motherboard. I have contacted Dell support and they will sell me a new one for $170 that is an exact replacement. Is there a way to upgrade the motherboard or am I stuck with having to replace it with the original? I am running Windows XP. The processor is 3.0G, 512, 800FSB.

A:motherboard replacement

You will have to do a lot of research on that current motherboard in order to make sure you get one that is compatible.

I would call back DELL and ask them if the one they are offerening you is a refurb or is it brand new? Dell has a habit of selling refurb parts.

Also ask them for the make/model number of the motherboard and I can help you do some research if you like?

Windows update is a quick and easy way to get all hardware drivers. Keep in mind though they may not be the latest. To get the latest drivers you would goto your motherboard/peripheral makers website and download them there.

A:Re-activation after Motherboard Replacement

jcontino889 The unfortunate fact is that your original product key was embedded into the UEFI firmware of the original motherboard by HP when the PC was built.  There is no way to retrieve that key, now. HP does not keep a record of individual product keys matching individual PCs, so they are not going to be able to provide you the original key -- and they are under no obligation to provide you a SECOND key, as you did not have HP do the hardware replacement. With the product now being out of warranty, it is really HP's call whether or not to charge you for support -- and from the experiences I have had with older equipment -- they are going to do that, there is just no way around id. HP Customer Support is really the only avenue you have for getting support.  If they won't help you for free, because your PC is out of warranty, there is nothing we can do about that on this forum.

I have an aspire V with a video card that is going out.  My son has opened it up and worked on it so I'm sure the warranty is void.  Where can I get a replacement motherboard?

Relevancy 74.82%

Hi there,

I'm new the forum and could use some advice. I have experience with removing and replacing all parts of the computer except motherboards.

Cutting the long story short, I tried updating my BIOS last night and I have now ended up with a corrupt BIOS and everytime I try to boot from my Windows 7 CD it blue screens.

I think its time for an upgrade and therefore I would like some suggestions on a new motherboard. I have already bought a 1TB SATAII HDD which is on its way. I would like to replace the motherboard.

I currently have a ASUS P5N73-AM

My computer has a Quad-Core processor, I don't need the built-in Graphics card as I have a stand-alone ATI card. I have 4GB of RAM, but if possible would like to upgrade to 6 or 8.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for you help in advance,


A:Replacement motherboard - some advice?

We need to know the exact model of CPU, but from what you've said, you have a LGA775 motherboard, and DDR2 RAM. Your CPU is likely a Core2Quad, but it doesn't hurt to confirm exactly what CPU you have.

You will be limited by the fact your current motherboard is also mATX, and because most DDR2 motherboards in that format for your CPU have only two slots available, and a max RAM of 4GB - it looks like your at your maximum already.

That said, here are some I would consider (I prefer Gigabyte over everything else but its personal preference):

1. Asus P5KPL-AM EPU iG31 Socket 775 onboard VGA 6 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard £32.94 from eBuyer
2. Asrock G31M-S R2.0 G31 Socket 775 VGA Out 6 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard This supports 8GB RAM £32.99 from eBuyer
3. Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L iG31 Socket 775 onboard VGA 7.1 channel audio mATX Motherboard £33.00 from eBuyer
4. Asus P5QPL-AM iG41 Socket 775 onboard VGA 6 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard this supports 8GB RAM £34.90 from eBuyer

You will need to ensure you check your CPU is supported by the motherboards above if you wish to purchase them - or let us know and we can confirm for your peace of mind.

You may be able to fit a standard micro ATX motherboard in the case, but odds are that front panel connections like power switch, power LED, hard drive LED and USB ports are not going to just fit with out some re-wiring. You could buy any socket 478 motherboard and a new case then reuse the old CPU, drives and other parts. But then you may as well upgrade from the Celeron too.

Hello all, Yesterday my girlfriend accidentally spilt juice on her laptop. Needless to say, it's toast. It won't turn on or anything so I'm thinking the mobo is fried.The laptop is the Acer Aspire R14 (R5471T-51UN). Because we are both on extremely limited incomes, I am considering purchasing a replacement motherboard for it and attempting the repair myself.Unfortunately it is nearly impossible to locate a replacement motherboard easily. But I did manage to find one website that has a board advertised as"NB.G7W11.00P - MAINBOARD R5-471T I5, R5-471T-52EE For Aspire R5-471T-52EE / R5-471T-52EE Notebook" It's the closest thing I can find and looks a lot like the one in the laptop. Can anyone confirm or comment/recommend me anything? Thank you all so very much.

I RMA'd the motherboard of a new system I am building because one of its' two banks of DIMM slots was defective.

Is it necessary for me to re-install of the OS once I have the same replacement motherboard installed? If it is necessary for me to re-install, am I going to have issues with my licensed copy of Windows 7, since in theory it is being installed on another system?

BTW, the OS installed fine and the system appears to be stable running off 16GB of memory. Nevertheless, I returned the mobo because I couldn't get my system to recognize the other 16GB of memory installed. I am a PC convert after having spent the last 15 years working with Macs so my knowledge of PC OSs is not terribly sophisticated. This is my second PC build (the first being a hybrid with a mac OS).

A:Replacement Motherboard--Do I need to reinstall OS?

Hi dMathers, Welcome to the forums, If you are replacing "like for like" then there should be no problem as long as you are using a retail copy of win7, if by chance you are using an OEM version then you may have issues where the mobo is tied to the OEM version these are not unsurmountable but may require a phone call to Microsoft to activate the OS

is has this motherboard, which is dead. I researched this mobo and found out this particular model has a problem with the GPU, and HP would fix it for free.

So my question is, could another mobo fit inside this case, such as this

A:Emachine motherboard replacement

Remember that the board you use must accept the CPU of the one in your failed eMachine board.
The hard drive is likely good, but the Windows on it will detect that the motherboard has changed, and then it will shut down. Sometimes the eMachines recovery disk will work if you run it in repair mode, or if you run a full new install, but usually not on that T2245 model. It is designed to seek out the code on the eeprom on the motherboard to verify that it is allowed to run a repair or install on the new equipment. So you may have to buy a new copy of Windows XP. Your memory will be good, but the power supply will not be good, or in the rare case when it is good, it may not have enough power for the new motherboard.
So expect to buy a new motherboard, a new CPU heatsink and fan, thermal paste, and a windows disk.
Or just buy a decent rebuilt Dell or HP or Gateway, and an external USB enclosure so you can rescue the data on the old eMachines drive and move it to the new or used drive. It will cost you less than the replacement board, power supply, and Windows.
