  1. bump
  2. Whe you turn on your PC, press F8, or del....or try with F1 till F12...some one of this option show you the windows of the picture.
  3. Cpuid will also id your board. It's a free download.
  4. i have cpuz, looked at it, doesnt give anything but "Quanta 30A0" and there are tons of differant "models" it is a very common motherboard, i need a detailed model for example "412237-001" cpuz doesnt show that, thats why im here

    bios is what im assuming your talking about, and bios shows the same as cpuz, there is a detailed model number but i dont want to tear my notebook apart to find it, laptop still works and im using it now, it is my only pc, i need to swap cause sound out of speakers doesnt work MOST of the time
  6. If you have a notebook pc, it's going to be tough to justify the cost of a replacement board. You'll be lucky to find it used for $100; many go for over $200.
  7. well i found many on ebay between 60-100, but lets stay on topic, cause that doesnt help
  8. If you have your original system number, try hp's online tech support, which is usually free. I got online with a tech for almost 20 minutes recently to discuss ordering an hp backplate for a board I was trying to purchase. The tech was able to take me to the correct page for ordering the part with pricing, etc. I gave her top ratings when they emailed a questionaire about her service. She went out of her way to find an answer at no charge. I had another hp system, but was interested in a board sold at computer geeks. Even though I didn't purchase the board, I was pleased with hp's service.
  9. use headphones?
    also good luck replacing the motherboard on a notebook if you havent before..

    its pretty intense.
  10. headphone work fine, but i want my speakers to work, i dont need luck, ive doe it before, and again can we stay on topic
