because the seller suggest this. When i put the new motherboard in my laptop it cannot boot up and turns on. Only the power led is on but nothing else happends. So i take out the bios battery and i put it back. So when i press the power button now the led blinks 3 times.
Is problem with my new motherboard because it is not the same version???My old is DEV E and the new is DEV D.
Please reply me soon to send the motherboard back and take my money back.
Thanks my friend.....
Pm.i don't speak very good english.i m sorry if i have any mistake.
the memories works fine before turn of my laptop.i believe is the wrong motherboard with some other ddr mhz frequensy and this is the reason that blinks 3 times.Are you hear anything simillar about this???
ok.i test the ram in other laptop and works fine.also my rams is DDR2 the same with the seller but if blinks 3 times i believe is not the right version of motherboard.Do you believe this?Also the bios chip in my old motherboard is newer than my new acordind the letters which is printed on these...
This tells me that there shouldn't be a problem because of the different frequencies, so maybe the motherboard (or something related to its memory slots) is faulty. But let's hope you'll get help from someone with more experience than I have.
Yes, it seems like your old motherboard was a more modern edition. What was the problem with that, if you don't mind me asking? I searched around about common problems with HP Pavilion laptops, I could see that some have serious overheating issues. Sometimes they can be helped by "reflowing" the soldering inside the video card chip. (This is not the same model, but the guy seems to be very competent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnkQNmKauEc )
