We can asked this question all the time by our customers: Can you repair my motherboard? The answer is, it depends.The problem with a motherboard is that firstly the complexity of the board means that if you have had a surge through the board you don’t know for certain the extent of the damage caused.Secondly, the motherboard constitutes the majority in terms of the value of a laptop, so if you cannot repair the motherboard often it is not worth keeping the laptop.
Often all that is needed is a motherboard reflow.Laptop Power UK have the most sophisticated laptop reflow machines available on the market which involves heating up the motherboard and re-soldering the graphics chip back onto the board.Historically this fixes 70% of motherboard problems, however sometimes more integral damage has been done to the motherboard which, generally speaking is not economically repairable.
We believe at Laptop Power UK, that on balance, a motherboard reflow is a great value repair for the customer.However, at the outset, customers need to be aware that whilst a motherboard reflow is likely to work, it is a more complex repair than buying a new laptop charger or fitting a new laptop screen, or indeed fixing a dc jack.If you wish to discuss your options in more detail with regard to motherboard reflows, or indeed any other laptop repair or laptop charger, get in contact with a Laptop Power UK technician.
