Laptop RAM Upgrade & Repair Chico
There are a lot of misconceptions of what RAM does. Most people think “computer memory” is the hard drive. RAM is more like the short term memory in your computer. Here’s how it works. You ask for a piece of information, say a photos of your kids at the lake...
Your motherboard is a lot like your spine. Everything in your computer needs to use the motherboard for power, to relay information, and for cuddling, ok, just kidding on the last one, but seriously why call it a motherboard if you can't cuddle with it? Apple calls theirs a logic board; who wants to cuddle with that? It sounds like something a Vulcan would come up with and you can't cuddle a Vulcan, they just look at you... weirdos. Ok, back to the motherboard repair thing. Diagnosing a bad motherboard is difficult. There really isn't any way to be sure if your motherboard needs to be repaired until you've tested everything else in your machine. Even then it's probably your power supply anyway. One telltale sign of a bad Motherboard is to look at the transistors on the motherboard. If they have crud kind of coming out of them, are crooked, or leaning it could mean your motherboard is bad. More often than not though when EVERYTHING else in your system checks out and you still get inexplicable crashes, it's probably your motherboard. Nerds On Call Computer Repair can replace your motherboard. This isn't a small task by the way. You vae to remove the CPU, the fans, and yank that sucker out of the case. This can take hours if done properly. Once done, if the wrong board is used to replace the old motherboard you'll have to reformat your hard drive, reinstall your operating system, and all of your data. ARGH! Anyway, we replace motherboards, like 1,000 times a year, so we've gotten pretty good at it. As for repairing your motherboard, I wouldn't suggest it. The motherboards don't cost much to replace and once you start soldering components on or off a motherboard the world gets mor complicated than it needs to be.
