Laptop Motherboard Replacement

Motherboard on laptop fried, liquid spill. Purchased a replacement on eBay for fraction of the cost of a replacement laptop.

When you have a laptop torn apart, you always want to make sure will work before buttoning up! For this I simply connected power source, LCD screen and power button, indeed it works!

Keyboard Replacement


What a difference!

How can you tell when it’s time to replace keyboard? The reply to that probably won’t shock you, but you might need a little push to overcome fear of breaking your trusty laptop. Today it’s as part of us as anything, here’s a little advice to know if it’s time.


  • Have you ever spilled anything on your laptop? Coffee droplets perhaps? Over time, adds up…
  • Any sticky keys? Not the message that pops up when hit shift key 5 times (try it)
  • Any chicken finger crumbs in there?
  • Do you have all your keys? Ever tried to put one back on?


If you answered yes to any of these questions it may be time. Some folks may think a keyboard will last forever, but think about how much you type, and even frustration type? Most keyboards only last a couple years, and they aren’t that expensive to replace, makes a world of difference though, like a brand new laptop!
