Having a laptop is great. Having a laptop with a broken motherboard is not so great. The motherboard is both the most crucial component in your laptop as well as one of the hardest to diagnose as being broken. The CPU, the RAM, the power supply, all need to be tested before it can be absolutely certain that the motherboard is the issue. And with laptops, if the motherboard is broken, it needs to be replaced. It can’t really be repaired. This all comes down as a serious drag to you as a computer user.  So how do you know when your motherboard might be failing?

The most common thing for motherboards to do on their way out is to make your computer crash randomly. It could mean a couple other things, but it’s a good sign your motherboard isn’t performing up to spec. Whatever it is – it’s not a good thing to have happen, and you should definitely have it looked it. A motherboard isn’t something you can just run into Sacramento and pick up.
