    I'm looking for a motherboard for my laptop. I can't seem to find info on where to buy one and who even makes them. I know nothing about laptops and the type of stuff they take. any help would be great.

    Thanks,

    Laptop motherboards are mostly unique for the type/series. Your best bets are the manufacturer and ebay. Though buying one from the manufacturer will cost quite a lot most likely.

    Yeah. Ebay and the manufacturer are the only places I know too, and I've look a little. Plus from the looks of them, it would be a pain to hook one up. If you're looking for a new motherboard just cause you want to upgrade you won't have much luck. Sometimes a new motherboard may fit in an older case, but often it won't, and it is really difficult to find any information on compatibility.

    Let us know how you get on - I hear laptops are difficult unless you know exactly what you doing, everything is too small and fiddley.

    I did some searching and I found a few web site that sell oem/referbs. I can buy a good used laptop for the price they are asking for a mobo:nutkick: . I spilled a glass of wine on mine and fried it pretty good. I sent it to Sony and they said it would cost about $1800 to fix. I just laughed. Guys don't let your friends drink and play bf2.:toast: Just not worth it.:banghead:
    I now have a good reason to look at the new Alienware & XPS's. Thanks for the input.
