Preferred Solution: W530 - manual; mother board replacement; GPU failure

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.)

Welcome to the forum!

GPU is soldered, meaning your're right about needing to swap the complete motherboard. You can download the HMM (Hardware Maintenance Manual) from here: click me!

Good luck with the swap!

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.

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.

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.

Hello people, I really have a big problem. My computer windows xp started forgetting things like date and time. So, I decided to change the battery located in the mother board. I turned off my computer, I unplugged power cable, I went to the store and bought an identical battery. I came back home and I installed the new battery and I plugged all cables and I started my computer but I did not hear any beeps, those you hear when the system is booting, and even worse, I could not see any data in my monitor just a message from the monitor that cable is not plugged. So I tried a different monitor but i did not succeed. I bought a New graphic card but it did not work neither.

Please, i need your help. Any other ideas or suggestions to solve my problem

Hi all - I've got a w530 2436-CTO that likely needs a new main board. It won't post, and when the memory is removed it gives a beep code that the manual says is either the DIMM or the system board. I believe my system board FRU is 04x1505, but I can't find anywhere to buy this part. How can I figure out which other FRUs are compatible? For example, I see many places selling 04x1547.A Lenovo doc describes 04x1505 as PLN Q1 y-amt y-TPM and the 04x1547 as PL Q3 W8 nAMTyTPM.Any thoughts? Thanks guys.

Hi, Does anyone know which other board is compatible with W530 04X1515? Thanks.

A:Other compatible system board with W530 04X1515

There are MANY part numbers.  That board is a fairly basic W530 board.  It has TPM, no AMT, no RAID, the Q1 graphics chip and a windows 8 pro license.  Boards with RAID options and AMT will also work.  Q3 graphics would be OK , but more expensive.  You want one with a PRO-type license.  I think I have one at home, but I am away until Sunday evening.

One problem that has me perplexed . When a customers motherboard goes down , it means reformatting and re-installing XP. Of course all my customer info is gone. If you try to boot up With the new motherboard XP will not load. It launches a critical error and says the boot sector has a virus. I know that XP has this built in to prevent it from being installed on several different computers . This anti-piracy is based upon motherboards bios.

I will not build a computer with pirated software but when the legal owner of the PC and the software needs his computer fixed he should not have to lose all his info. This is when I miss 98 , ME. Under those most computers it was replace motherboard and after several reboots you were all ready to go with all your data intact.

has anybody come up with a work around for this ?

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.

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.

I plan on playing Mabinoig, combat arms, Dragons nest,Vindictus,mincraft, and my sister plans on playing Sims 3, all of this on my computer, and being able to record videos like minecraft. on top of that the normal flash games. this is like 10-15 mb of space, not much so alota space isnt needed, but a fast enough mother board is needed.
Also what is a good enough graphics card to play these games, they arent high end graphics and i dont need high end either. so yeah name em please and make em cheap

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).

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

Well, all u need is a "p4" mobo, becuase all have the same procesor socket. U need 2 mind out whether u have ddr dual ddr or sdram. The easiest thing is, as u said 2 take the mobo 2 the comp guy, and ask him about momory.
