    Hi ethshew, and welcome to TSG.

    If the laptop cannot boot without it, then I would have to say the io board needs to be replaced. If you are seeking help in finding a way to boot with a failed or removed io board, then you will need to tell us the manufacturer and full model number of your laptop.
