48.4TU05.04M motherboard with an i3 chip currently. The chip is soldered to the board and not detachable. If I get a replacement board but with an i5 or i7 chip will I have compatability issues? Or should I just get like for like. Price is same. Nooob here so be gentle. Cheers for any help.

  1. Before jumping to motherboard have you tryed a monitor or tv plugged into the laptop HDMI port? Could be you screen is going bad.

    I can see the fan spin for a second, same time as lights are on, then goes off. Same with disc drive. It's definitely a power distribution issue. Also this issue has arisen due to me punching the middle of the keyboard which has the board and cpu underneath it. Other forums have suggested new board for this issue. Local computer shop suggested I have cracked the motherboard. Not literally but some of the connections. £65 for a second hand board with an i7 processor.

  3. I see so the issues of the new board is your replacing the bios which may have the windows key. If the windows works then there shouldn't be any other issues.

    Not sure what you mean by any of that. Replacing the bios is out of my league. I was pressuming swap the old board for the new and all would work fine. System would just have i7 chip. Clean install of everything and all will be fine.

  5. It may but the bios is part of the motherboard. The bios does have the windows key for windows 8 and 10. Cant say for sure if your OS will be activated. The hardware will work but the OS I cant say for sure.

  7. I get what you are referring to now but this won't be an issue. I already took the hard drive out to get all the data off it. I formatted it and stuck it in case to use as external hard drive. 3 months later I'm missing the convenience of having a laptop and so I'm attempting to Fix it. I have a copy of windows to go back on it.

  9. Summary.
    I have gone ahead and replaced the motherboard. I did upgrade and went for a secondhand motherboard with an i7 3537u chip. The donor board has come from an acer aspire v5 571 but it uses the same board, husk 48.4TU05.04M. Also comes with i5 chips.

    Its easy to install and works brilliantly. With a clean install laptop is running sweet. Quick and responsive.
    Thought I would update and share incase anyone searching the Web has the same problem. Cheers for the help Elbert. Share the love. Peace
