my computer has been left unused in my spare room since november last year as it wont turn on, i tried different cables etc but to no avail. my boyfriend has now decided enough is enough and he took it down to the computer place. they phoned today and said that it needs a new motherboard and this will cost £159 to sort out. the other option is to just pay the £25 'diagnosis' fee and bring the broken pc home.
what do you guys advise? shall i just pay the £159 and have it sorted or is a new motherboard something that i would be able to get hold of and fit with relatively no problems??
cheers for any input!!!
