Acer Motherboard mb.sak09.007 replacement

Hi,

I have a Acer Aspire M1640 which has a dead motherboard in it.

The local (state) Acer supplier is out of stock, and theres no stock in Sydney (Australia) either.

Can anyone recommend a suitable replacement motherboard - non genuine.

Acer Australia state the replacement boards will arrive *sometime* late march, we can't wait that long :o


Many thanks

    I hope it works! haven't had time to test it yet!

    I cant believe companies are charging 100+ for the exact replacement board. crazy...

    Hi sorry I'm a newbie to all this, did the board you bought work, and do you have any top tips when I change the motherboards?

    Thanks
  6. Sorry for the late reply, yes it did work, you may want to consider getting help from someone who has removed and re-seated a CPU chip before.

    You tube is also your friend!
