    Smile Suggest a Motherboard?


    Hello all,

    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 :-
    Ram :
    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.
    Hard disk:
    160GB SATA HDD
    Processor:
    Intel Pentium Dual core E2160(1.80 Ghz)
    DVD Drive:
    "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.

    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.

    Thanks.
