I sell motherboards on E-Bay.
I test all of my boards to at least post before I list them.
Over the years, I have accumlated a TON of " bad " boards.
Some have obvious problems like bad caps, or blown components, but many of them look fine, just wont post.
Does anyone know of a place that repairs motherboards ??
I have some higher end boards that I think would be worth spending money to get repaired.

I've done a google search, but have come up empty.
Plus, it would be nice if someone is familiar with a place and can recommend them.

Thanks

I have bought motherboards from Ebay and they wouldn't post or do anything because the battery was dead. Once I put in a new battery everything was fine.

I should add some more info:

First thing I do when I get a no post is to clear the BIOS.
This has solved many non-post boards.

I then replace the battery.

I even try booting with an old PCI video card to make sure it's not the AGP slot.

I double check to make sure the processor I'm using is compatible.

I have 3 different memory chips that I try in the board.

The only thing I hook-up when testing is memory, processor, and video card.
