If you have a laptop, you will have to search ebay for a used board. I recommend a new laptop this coming black friday if you live in the states. Walmart had some for $199 last year. I had to wait six hours for a tv, so expect similar wait times. Otherwise, search for deals early on cyber monday; some will sell out fast. You could easily spend $200 for a replacement board and still have other problems. Getting a new system is your best option.
