Hi,I recently upgraded my DELL Latitude E5420 laptop with some new RAM and an SSD....it was working great but unfortunately for me my nephew knocked it over.
It wasn't on and was also closed at the time ,luckily there were no cracks etc.
When powered on though the screen was blank which was due to the display connector coming loose which I reconnected.
It was working fine for a day or two then my CPU temps started getting high and reached as high as 93 which is when I shutdown.
On the next boot though I got a fan malfunctioned warning and there is now no sound from the fan(I assume it must be dead) with my cpu temps still rising.
I have to replace the power jack on it so I started stripping it apart and that got me thinking about replacing the motherboard and I have been looking online but most of the motherboards for my laptop say REV A02 whereas my motherboard is REV A00.
At the moment I feel like scrapping the lot of it but I recently purchased a brand new bottom base and was going to have to strip everything out anyway.
Do I have to find a REV A00 or can I put a REV A02 in it?
