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?

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.

More often than not though when EVERYTHING else in your system checks out and you still get inexplicable crashes, it’s probably your motherboard.
