My laptop is defected and I knew there's something wrong with the motherboard, so I ordered a replaced one online. And decided to change it.

The thing is, it doesn't function..the motherboard goes but the cursor is flashing ...

Is there anybody who can give me some advise?

Thanks in advance.

URGENT..I need it to work..

 

My laptop is HP DV6. The motherboard part number 665346-001.

And I've contact the seller. They sent me the testing pictures of the mb. And it shows the mb functions well.

SO I'm pretty sure its not the problem with the mb.

Hi and welcome to our forums

:welcome:

 

Before you replaced your motherboard did you remember to back everything up and reinstall Windows together with all drivers??.... its sometimes possible to "get away" with not reinstalling Windows but it's good practice to do so.

 

To test your motherboard is the correct one for your computer, and is installed correctly use a good working machine to download a copy of Linux Puppy, burn it to a CD (as an image, as simple copy won't do) and then boot from it...( adjusting the BIOS to allow this if necessary, give your machine a good test using Puppy, you should be able to access your hard drive, access your photos etc and if you stick to Ethernet, access the Internet OK

 

If you have any stuff that you need an extra copy of then you can use Puppy to copy it to a flash drive memory stick or external USB hard drive.

 

If you cant get Puppy to run on your machine then (providing you did it correctly.... :D ) it indicates a hardware problem with your machine...

 

Post back and let us know how you get on... or if you need detailed directions on any of this.

Regards
