Qosmio G10 motherboard replacement

Q: Qosmio G10 motherboard replacement

After replacing the original motherboard of a Qosmio G10-120 Win Xp MCE with the official upgrade (FC43S1 A5A001749010 P000454980 board) some problems arose:

1. Second internal HDD no more seen.
2. All switch-off "standby/turn off computer/restart" buttons do not take completely effect (desktop quits but manual on/off button keeps to showing blue color and laptop remains active).
3. Cooling fan always turned on.

Motherboard upgrade consisted of:

1. Setting of new board DMI strings (in particular "Model Name" field was set to "Qosmio G10").
2. Loading of official update tool CD-ROM TCN0000006.
3. No BIOS nor EC/KBC upgrading.

Any idea?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Qosmio G10 motherboard replacement

I?m wondering how you did you update the information in the DMI?
As far as I know only the Toshiba authorized service provider is able to update the DMI information like model name, version number, etc? using special tools and utilities.

I googled for the motherboard part number you have posted in your original thread and it looks like this motherboard has been released for Qosmio F15 series.
So possibly its wrong motherboard?

I have an F60-111 and it had a terrible hard disk problem several months ago, it wasn't even a year old and was already lagging and crashing all of the time. I have 3 years international warranty for it, so I sent the laptop back to Saudi Arabia and had the hard disk replaced in January, I just received it now, but I'm disappointed. The laptop works fine sure, but the replacement hard disk was only 100GB which is a big downgrade from it's original capacity of 600GB.

My problem is my laptop was repaired but it was replaced with a lower capacity hard disk. I feel cheated, am I entitled for compensation? Thank you.

A:Qosmio F60-111 - HDD replacement

Hello

That?s really unbelievable. Please don?t wait so long and contact this service as soon as possible. Explain the situation and ask for their explanation. Something like this should not happen and defective HDD should be exchanged with the same one.

If they are not cooperative you should blare out a threat contacting Toshiba directly.

What do you think about that?

Hello,

I'm having problems with my laptop. I had some problems with my fan, and i have to replace it. I have contacted the supported by Toshiba repair centers on Greece about the replacement, and they said that they don't have a replacement. I want to know what the models of other computer with the same fan as mine so i can find one.

A:Qosmio F50 - 12L Fan Replacement

To be honest I don?t think anyone here can pick up so many info and say for sure which notebook model has identical hardware parts, especially cooling fan. I can imagine that just using certain part number and searching in databank it can be checked.

To be honest I cannot imagine that Toshiba service provider cannot obtain new fan. In my opinion problem is that they want to replace it for you and make some money.

I?m afraid you are on your own so try to google around and try to find cooling fan for F50. All F50 models have the same one. Check also eBay. With a little bit luck you can find it there too.

By the way: do you want to replace it alone?

I was looking at this one:

A:Qosmio X870 - non 3D screen replacement

If the graphic card would support the display panel resolution, then it should be possible to use higher resolution display panel. The graphic card should be able to handle the 1920 x 1080 resolution and therefore I don’t see any big issues why such resolution should not be supported…
It’s a matter of graphic card… you know…

Regarding the panel compatibility question:
The Qosmio X870 was equipped with a 17.3" TFT color LCD panel….
Type of Lighting: sidelight LED

Usually the display panel dealer should be able to say if this part would be compatible or not, but according to the information on the ebay page, the parts seems to be compatible…

Hi All,

I hope you can help me,

I have just replaced the screen on my Qosmio F750 that unluckily ran out of warranty two weeks ago so i don't qualify for support,

When i have replaced the screen i followed all standard procedure to replace any screen,

But for some reason now the screen won't turn come on (Everything works when plugged into HDMI).

There is no backlight or image on screen i tried fitting the old screen and that also doesn't work.

Any help at all would be very much appreciated.

Thanks all,

A:Qosmio F750 Screen replacement problems

Hi

Are you sure that the new screen is OK and compatible?
Was the screen connected properly?

I guess there is nothing wrong with the motherboard or graphic chip since the external monitor seems to be OK.
Therefore I think it?s either an connection problem or maybe you used wrong or faulty display.

A:3D Issue on Qosmio F755-3d350 after screen replacement

Hi

As far as I know after LCD panel (screen) or webcamera disassembly or exchange/replacement it?s necessary to calibrate the 3D sensor chip of the LCD using special 3D calibration tool.

This calibration can be performed by Toshiba authorized service provider only!

It looks like you have no other option as to contact the ASP in your country to perform such 3D calibration.

Hi,

I have just installed a new motherboard on my F10-124.
This was the upgraded PCB P000415760 (Part number P000454980) as the graphics card failed - again!!

The documents that came with it tell me to update the Bios, EC/KBC (SVP Parameters) and write the new DMI. At the moment the VGA controller is not recognised, and no CD drive is listed.

Can this be updated by myself, without having to send it away to an ASP, as its not worth the money if I do. I just want to use this as an additonal PC for my daughter to use.

Surely I should be able to update the Bios from a download or something from the toshiba support site.

Any help appreciated.

A:Qosmio F10 Main Board Replacement - Update BIOS etc

The new BIOS is on the Toshiba website, and I believe a different Recovery Disc needs to be used.

Or you can simply install Ubuntu, which should detect the hardware automatically. http://www.ubuntu.com/

A:Qosmio X770-107 - nVidia GTX 560m faulty - replacement question

I?m afraid another and different GPU will not work properly.
From my experience the BIOS will not handle such new device properly.

Of course this is just an assumption because I never tried such GPU replacement.
But according to different suggestion from people who tried to replace the notebook?s GPU, mostly its an compatibility problem between the GPU and motherboard/BIOS.

Therefore in case of GPU problems, it?s not worth to replace only the GPU because the costs are immense.

Hi,

I am trying to locate a replacement motherboard for a 19" Qosmio X505 (with i7 cpu) and have located some but have been unable to confirm that the boards support the i7 cpu which I want to use. The board which was fitted is the DAOTZ6MB8FO rev F which I have not been able to find on UK EBay and I wondered if anyone knew of any other variations on this board which would fit and supported the i7.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

A:Need new motherboard for my Qosmio X505

The CPU support depends on the chipset available on the motherboard.
Generally speaking if the chipset supports the i5 CPU, then the i7 should be supported too.

So you have to know the chipset details… you know…

Hello my friend

It is not easy to give any comment to this. As far as I know services have exact instructions from Toshiba how to handle with specific problems and if you have different opinion it must be clarified in service directly.

I understand you want you mean with ?honest office? but you must also understand that every service has contract with Toshiba and must follow given instructions. Similar is with car services. It is infrequent that some defective parts can be repaired; only exchanged.

Anyway, following Toshiba support page in Madrid there are 5 Toshiba authorized providers. Try to contact some of them and see what they will say. The addresses and phone numbers you can find under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Find an ASP.

Good luck!

A:Motherboard Replacement

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.

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: https://parts.hp.com/hpparts/Search_Results.aspx?mscssid=AE6D55D28A8C42CE89A8C049F3D07655&SearchIn=PartNumber&SearchPN=730671-501 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: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-255-G1-Laptop-Motherboard-AMD-A-Series-A4-5000-1-50-GHz-730671-501-TESTED-/291792328450?hash=item43f02d9702:g:298AAOSwM4xXYC9Q 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

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.

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.

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.

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. Microsoft may see this as a new computer. You will probably not even be able to boot with the current o.s. installed on the drive.

My computer is giving me problems with random freezes/restarts and POST failures. I tried the stuff mentioned in the POST failure guide, but still have problems.

Replacing the PSU didn't work, I considering replacing the Motherboard, but don;t know which one to get. My old Board was an Intel 865GBF which had an P4 @ 2.4 gigahertz.

Any suggestions on which board to get so I can transfer the ram graphic card etc.. to the new board?

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
Satch

My motherboard is died. Have an HP A724n and want to replace the motherboard. It has an LGA 775 socket set with a Micro-ATX form factor. How do I know I am picking the equivalent or better motherboard from different manufactures? Are there recommend sites you world have me look at? How do I translate the different speeds and specifications?

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.

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!

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 scan.co.uk, so some advice would be really helpful!

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?

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

A setup such as this while not exceptionally powerful by todays standards, would run circles around that old socket 930 Athlon64 3500+ processor.

The motherboard was Gigabyte Ga-m68m-S2P and they are long out of the market. Since a DDR2 motherboard is very expensive in my country (about 110 euros) could i just buy a new motherboard and new rams and swap them? It would save me half the money but i am not sure what happens about compatibility. The cpu is an old athlon II and the gpu was an old geforce i dont remember the right model.

If the motherboard is the same, then it shouldn't require a reinstall, or re-activation, although a change in MAC address can trigger the latter anyhow

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,

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.

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.

I have Windows XP and the Motherboard is described as Eveshamvale - no other model number or info given I am getting an intermittent dual tone beep and I think this is caused by the fan failing to run full Motherboard Replacement Fan speed Motherboard Fan Replacement Is this a correct assumption first of all Do the beeps appear when perhaps the temperature rises because of the slowing down on the fan blades I have undone the four screws that keep the fan blades attached to the rest of the fan housing and have oiled it sparingly Although the beep will often go away for hours at a time they do return I am not conversant with motherboards at all although I have installed DVD Drives etc How difficult is it to replace the fan with a new one and how would I go about getting one My system is getting on in age years old but I want to keep it going until next year if poss when Windows will have been out for some time Any advice would be greatly appreciated you tech guys Wen nbsp

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,

Hello everyone,
Found this subject on the emachine motherboaerd on a search. Have a T2245 that the motherboard has gone bad. It's the imperail GL VE 20021218 mobo just wanting to know what would be the good replacement mobo would be for that. Any suggestions?
Thanks
 

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.

Hello,

I am in need of suggestions for a replacement of the ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP AiLifestyle Series P35 Socket 775 Socket eSATA 8 channel Audio ATX Motherboard.

It needs to be currently sold and similar, particularly to work with the hardware I have installed. I use the built in audio SPDIF, so that is needed too.

Please give me some suggestions, I can't use my PC until I get this ordered and install it. The study is a right mess, the PC is simply lying flat on its side and takes up a lot of space.

Thank you so much for your help (in advance).

I just got a replacement Foxconn motherboard since my other one fried. I went to reinstall it, made all the connections, and turned it on. Everything powers up but I can't get anything to display. The fan on my graphics card spins at 100% and doesn't die down, so that's a sign that it isn't getting past the bios. Is there something I need to do that I'm missing? I upgraded to this mobo before without any problems...

I've cleared cmos, ran the board out of the case to see if it was grounding out, ran with the bare essentials, and have checked all connections. The led debug indicators on the motherboard usually say FF, meaning it boots successfully. Now they don't say anything, just - -. Any help is appreciated...thanks!

Yes, most mobos will let you replace the bios chip. You can get more info at these sites.

The motherboard on one of my old pc's recently went belly up. With that in mind, I was wondering what my best & least expensive options were.
PC is a Compaq Presario 4400US (Prior to merge with HP), with a 1.3 Ghz Intel Celeron processor, 512RAM, CDRW. I've found an OEM (refurbished) motherboard & am astonished at the price of $695.00.
What do I need to know in regards to finding a compatible motherboard?
 

A:Motherboard Replacement Options

It depends on the form factor. If that case can hold an ATX or a micro ATX motherboard then you can pick anything that supports your CPU and RAM.
If the motherboard is proprietary form factor then you are better off getting an ATX case and putting your components there with a standard mobo.

Should I keep HDD 2&3 disconnected initially ? Has anyone had any experience with this before ?
 

A:Motherboard/Processor replacement

Experience with this? Lots of it.

Chances the installed OS will boot off another board are very, very, very unlikely. And even if it does, you'll have sporadic run problems until you do a clean install of the OS on the new board.

Exceptions to this rule: Exact replacement board.

I replaced the power supply a 350) with new one (a 450) didn't help.
PC is now at the repair shop-I am assuming the worst and expect a choice of a new PC with my old hard drives moved over or a new motherboard and chipsets.
What cost range should replacing the motherboard and chips be?

The existing PC has 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 (yea no comments) and a 20 gig HD plus a 120 gig added, a scanner and 2 printers.
I am hoping to salvage the info from both the hard drives. Maybe ghost the 20 and move the 120 to whatever system I end up with.

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.

Hi,
Recently my pc has more trouble booting each day. When i press the power button, it gets turned on but stops booting while reading the drives (the screen is still black by then). When i keep resetting it gets further sometimes, but it can take up to 30 tries to get into windows.

So i figured i'll replace my motherboard (Asrock K7VT4A Pro (Socket A)).
I heard that if i get another Socket-A type motherboard, i won't have to reinstall windows (reinstalling windows would be a real prob).
But i'm still wondering if this counts for only Asrock motherboards, or if i can also replace it with an AMD for instance.

Any advice or comment is welcome, as i realy dont even know if replacing the motherboard is the right thing to do..
 

A:Motherboard replacement concerns

installing windows is always a pain in the ***- no matter what system you put it on. You can reuse your old windows copy but you'll need to get a new key from M$. It will prompt you to call a 1-800 #. XP is only licensed for one machine at a time.

personally, I would take this time for an upgrade. You can salvage most of the parts, cdrom, memory (if it is DDR400), floppy drive, zip drive, etc....

sell the XP CPU- there's a high demand on ebay for it.

sell the video card

get yourself a nice AMD 64 system with a nice video card.
