Did a Repair Shop Tell You That It’s a Mainboard Problem?

If a repair shop tells you that your computer isn’t working because of a mainboard problem, it may not mean that the mainboard is irreparable. A mainboard replacement is usually considered to not be an economical option. In the past week, 2 people brought in laptops that would not begin to boot up when turned on. They were both beyond the simple hard reset and yet they were fixable without a mainboard swap. Maybe you have a laptop that you’ve given up on fixing. You may be surprised. It might just be fixable.
