Hello,

I am a Laptop Technician in Canada, and well to e honest I am really tired of junking so many motherboards because something has gone wrong on them. So I have decided to learn how to track down what on the board is blown, and replace it.

Can anyone you point me to where I can get board schematics and tech manuals for various laptops? And possible some sites with nicely documented details on the process of tracing down the short or whatnot?

Thank you,
Randy

You should be able to get the manuals online at the manufacturers site.

Most of the motherboard designs are proprietary and not available anywhere. The repair for field people is to replace the motherboard. Its cheaper (labor) just to replace the whole thing rather then troubleshooting to the failed part and finding/shipping/replacing the failed part. I wouldn't want to mess with the surface mount ICs on laptops anyway.

The reason I wanted to be able to f ix the boards, is I also work on them in my spare time. I buy broken ones and fix them. And if I could spend 3 hours and fix a motherboard for a 2 dollar part, I would actually make more money.

As it stands now I make about 50-100 dollars per laptop I repair and sell. Ah well I can just keep at it the way I am doing it now :)

Anyone have some broken laptops to sell?
