Repair A Mainboard

Attempt to repair your mainboard.

The mainboard, or motherboard, of a computer provides the valuable service of connecting all of the major components of your computer. If your mainboard does not work properly, neither will your computer. As such, you should take steps to diagnose and repair your mainboard as soon as an issue arises. The vast majority of problems stem from connections and power supplies.


1. Check your power cord connection. If the power cord does not appear properly plugged in, secure it in place. If you have the means, try another power cable. This should remedy the issue of not receiving power to your mainboard.

2. Open up your computer. You will see some clips or buttons on desktops that allow you to open the front cover. On laptops, you will need to unscrew and remove a panel.

3. Physically check your mainboard. The mainboard can be found by locating the large circuit from which the majority of the cables stem. Run your fingers to the connection of each individual cable. Snap those cables into place. More than likely, a few of them simply did not get attached properly. Once you secure your connections, close the computer back up. Turn your computer on to finalize the process. If your mainboard had any physical cracks, water damage or other noticeable issues, you will need to buy a new one as this cannot be repaired.
