Pavillion x360 mother board replacement

Q: Pavillion x360 mother board replacement

I have a HP Pavillion x360 (13z-a000) that I bought two years ago. The CPU is dead. The computer does not power on and the Caps Lock button blinks constantly (single blink). I brought it to a local shop and they confimed this but they do not fix HP. If it is the motherboard, can I just buy one and replace it myself? Where can I buy the mother board? How do I find the part number?

The serial number is [Personal Information Removed]

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

A: Pavillion x360 mother board replacement

Here is the Manual: Service Manual There are 4 different AMD motherboard depending on if you have the A8 processor or the A6 and Windows Standard or Pro. Get the same Windows version as you have or you will have to buy another copy of Windows. Your hard drive installation of Windows will not activate unless you install a motherboard set up for the same OS version. Post back if you need a more detailed explanation. Yours is a CTO laptop so we cannot just look up your original factory specs. You can interchange the A6 and A8 version of the motherboard with the caveat stated above. The Manual shows the "how-to" on replacement. Assuming you have the A8 and Windows Standard this is the part number: 769075-501 This is it on US amazon.com for $109 which is a pretty fair price: https://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-Convertible-Motherboard-769075-501/dp/B0118AZL1S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT...

Last night I tried to replace the mother board on my Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop. I bought the replacement part from an Ebay store, and it is still under warranty (90 days). After taking apart my entire laptop and putting the whole thing back together--a job that took my friend and I three hours--we plugged it in for the moment of truth. The battery light came on, so far so good. Then we hit the power button and...nothing happened. Well almost nothing. The machine appeared to turn on. All three lights on the the bottom of the LCD went on, but that's it. The fan didn't start, the monitor didn't start. The hard drive light was on but didn't appear to be reading at all. (i.e. no blinking or noise.) I'm quite perplexed. Everything appeared to go back together perfectly with the possible exception of the diskette drive cable clip, which we weren't exactly sure whether to put back in over, under, or through the disk drive data cable. We eventually put it through. For instructions and pictures of the process, check out link:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pblan/removing.htm

Everything else seemed to go back together seemlessly. We were very careful with screws and put all the right sizes back into their correct places. What could be causing this? Have I received a defective part? Are there any other explanations? I suppose a possible explanation is that the processor and/or video board are not quite connected correctly, but they seemed t...

A:MOTHER BOARD REPLACEMENT

A local computer repair shop is the best bet, but for a computer that old, it will probably cost more than it is worth.  Best option is to salvage the data from the hard drive onto a working PC.  Easiest way to do that is to remove the hard drive from the old Pavilion A6400 and connect it to a working PC.  If it is just to retrieve the data, an adapter similar to this will work nicelyhttps://www.amazon.com/AGPtek-Drive-Adapter-Converter-External/dp/B00BIE996S/ref=pd_sim_147_2?_encod...

I don't think the model will matter, however, mine is a Pavilion Slimline s5510f. With thanks from this forum, I have determined that I need to replace my mother board.  I have found HP support documentation on how to replace the mother board, but that leaves the question as to whether I have to do any type of programming of the new mother board or is the MB more or less a plug and play? Thanks for any help.

CMOS should only reset if there is something wrong, or if a battery is bad.

You will most likely end up replacing everything except the case. Any ATX or mini-ATX board should fit. How many PCI slots do you have now? 3? The power supply should be changed while your at it... Just deside what processor and memory you want to use, and select a motherboard that will run it.

Hi Buzz,
It sounds like you need to remap your keyboard. Go the following Microsoft webpage:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en

and download the Server 2003 tools software for free (good for XP too). Run the "remapkey.exe" tool to reprogram your keyboard--provided you're running Windows XP, of course.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Hello,
I am wanting to get a new mother board, to use with the AMD XP 1700 or greater processor. I am wanting to sue RDRam. However all I see is DDRAM boards. Is DD and RD Ram the same thing??? If a mother board supports DDRam will it also support RDRam???
Is there any reomendation for a mother board that will use RDRam and the AMD chip???

Thanks,

Bear
 

A:Mother Board

Currently, there are no motherboards or chipsets that support RDRAM with AMD processors. It could be a possiblity in the future.

RDRAM and DDR RAM are not at all the same thing. They are two different types of memory. None of the memory types are interchangeable. A particular memory slot can only accept one type of memory. Some motherboards support two different types of memory, but they have separate slots for each type, and you can only use memory sticks of one type. You cannot use both types at one time.

System specs are Pentium 4, 1gb ram, Asus P4R800-VM motherboard.

Problem is I'm pretty sure the ram is dead or very slowly dying, constant program crashes, different stop errors such as 0x0000000a and 0x0000008e (win32k.sys).

Things I have tried are swapping RAM to different memory slots, cleaning the RAM, changing win32k.sys to win32k.old. Tested RAM with MemTest. The latter threw up about 8 errors in less than 5 minutes. Doing a little bit more searching around I'm wondering if its the motherboard that is failing. I have tested the hard drive, its fine no problems there. I have also done a fresh install of xp with sp2, and still having the same issues.

I have tried to create a disc with the microsoft windows memory diagnostic tool, I can't burn the iso every program throws up errors (burn at once tells me the iso is too small). Have tried extracting the files and burning to a blank cd, set boot option to my cd drive but it just wont work.

Are there any other diagnostic tools etc, that I can use to determine if its the memory slots failing of the RAM. The ram is DDR400 RAM 2 512 sticks, I have other ram but its PC2100 I did try testing with this but the computer wouldn't boot up with the PC2100. I would try putting the DDR400 on the other motherboard but that one wont support the DDR400.

What should I try next? At the moment I can't use any programs without having crashes or having to restart the computer. I'm not to keen on the idea of... Read more

Have an E Machine PC it is not booting up, so, I open up the computer. I saw the CPU fan was not running and the processor was hot. I went out purchase used CPU Celeron, the computer is doing the same thing and not booting up. Do you think the CPU and the mother board is bad. The power supply is good, the fan in power supply is working. I also used a power supply tester.
Thanks!
 

A:cpu and the mother board

Was your old CPU a Celeron as well? Same speed?

You may want use the Clear CMOS jumper to clear the BIOS settings or you can pull out the CMOS battery for a few minutes.

Try reseating the RAM and video card as well. Or try a known good piece of RAM and a good video card. You can disconnect all the drives and remove any unneccessary PCI cards like a modem.

My son's computer was running a little slow. Then when he went to turn it on, it would boot up, but would let him past the start up screen. Kept asking for password. I took it to my computer guy. he checked, said he couldn't find anything wrong. He wiped it out and reinstalled. He said he did this two times. Then he calls me and says he needed to try something else. Calls me back next day, says its my mother board. No good. Called him yesterday, said that it wasn't ready, needed to reinstall everything. This is now the 4th time he is reinstalling. Called today, said it's not ready, taking long time to reinstall everything. Told me I could probably pick up a new computer for about 400.00. I told him to just reinstall everything. Told me he was trying, but said that he may not be able to. Can anyone shed some light as to what is going on. I don't trust him all of a sudden. Why reinstall 4 times. Any suggestions what it could be, or what's going on.
 

A:Is It my mother board?????

Sure sounds fishy to me. If you can get it back maybe someone on the forum can assisst you to get it up and going.
