I Made a mistake buying Samsung laptop model NP350V5C-A0EUK. It worked exactly for 1 year i.e till warranty period within 1 month from the date my warranty expired one of my RAM's stopped working - I bought a new RAM, after that my hard drive got bad memory sectors and I replaced it, then one of my RAM slots was dead, now there is a problem with the second slot.

My question is - By any chance can we get RAM slot repaired ?? - i suppose answer may be NO - I may be wrong as well

If the answer is NO I suppose I can use other parts of the laptop like processors, RAM, HD, Key pads, display screen so .. on is there any way that I can replace some thing like mother board alone to get back my laptop to life ??

Thanks in advance for your suggestion

One friendly suggestion out of scope of this question - never ever ever buy Samsung laptops

Yes, it can be repaired, as least in theory. Often the labor cost exceeds the value of the device, so it is not worthwhile do repair the item unless you can personally do it yourself.

You can remove the RAM and the HD and perhaps use it in another computer, but the RAM might not be the same type and most computers come with a HD. You can put the HD in an external case to make use of it.

You can also part out the machine and sell the items, such as ebay. You might also be able to find a replacement motherboard on ebay. The issue is the cost, then the labor to replace it.
