Suggest a Motherboard?
I'm looking for a desktop motherboard for my DELL INSPIRON 530 Desktop which has a Foxconn G33M02 motherboard by default. Since the motherboard has gone bad i'm looking forward to swap it with a new one. My current specifications are :-
2GB DDR2 800 Mhz
512MB + 512 MB DDR2 667Mhz
My current motherboard i.e. Foxconn G33M02 has 4 ram slots, out of which currently 3 are occupied.
160GB SATA HDD
Intel Pentium Dual core E2160(1.80 Ghz)
"2" - SATA DVD Drives
1 Chasis Fan
1 Processor Fan
LGA 775 Socket
300 Watt SMPS
2xPCI Slots(1 Slot occupied by IEEE Firewire 1394 card & the other by TV Tuner Card)
1 PCIe 1x Slot
1 PCIe 16x Slot
1 Flexbay drive for Media card reader
You may have the complete details of the motherboard via DELL website as of since new user's are not allowed to post URL links on this forum.
I'm be willing to buy a motherboard with same specification (of any brand) and within the price range of INR 5000 or US $100. I had an option to buy the motherboard which i had by default but couldn't find it at the aforesaid price.
By the way i'm from India.
Thanks in advance to who so ever replies.

You can also try out for Intel or Gigabyte motherboards. I am using them both since the past 3 years without any problem.

Hi! I have a MacBookPro. Motherboard has a problem, I think broken. What should I replace it with? You see, I know nothing about these stuffs. Can anyone help me?

Slimpins, you should have created a new thread with your question.
You can't change the motherboard on a laptop. How old is it? any warrenty?

Yeah, MrFujin is right, you cannot change the motherboard of a laptop. A Laptop is a compact machine, its hardware is totally locked into its memory compartment. You cannot remove things you would consider removable in a Desktop (such as GPU, Memory Cards, LAN Card, almost everything on the motherboard, hardisk or anything else). If your laptop is under the warranty-period then you may consider it sending it to a the company's service centre and I'm sure they'll repair/replace it for free, even if its not under the warranty the company may repair it for a fee (but I'm not sure if the damaged-motherboard of a laptop is repairable or not). If all else fails then you might have to buy a new laptop, since laptops are considered fragile and in most cases, damage to the system is irreversible.

To be honest motherboards are pretty cheap if you aren't looking for a top of the range gaming motherboard, asus motherboards are near enough bulletproof
