Update & repair MB

by Bill_W In reply to update and repair pc

Not sure what you mean here - as you are aware, most motherboards are not really repairable as such. One can replace the odd chips and discrete components, but as far as taking a soldering iron to one... Anyway, the cost of a new one, especially if your old ram and cpu are recycleable, is such that repair is not usually an economic proposition.

Of course, one should be certain that the MB itself is NFG before one buys a new one. I suspect I'm not the only one that has had far more dead or dying cards or ram than dead MBs over the years...

And upgrade of a PC with new MB/RAM/CPU (and PSU, if there's MB/PSU incompatibility) is another topic.

Please post a few more details of what you are really trying to do.
