I brought a co-workers computer home to clean out the junk. That has now been completed. When I first connected a monitor to their tower I had to replace the hold down nuts as they had broken bolts in them. It is a very loose connection to the monitor. Starting last night upon startup the keyboard alarm went off and I had to shut down a few times to get a good keyboard connection. Even tried a second keyboard. This morning it took around 6 tries to get the keyboard to work. Will a computer tech be able to secure these connections better or will they need to replace the mother board? Does this have to definitely be taken to a computer shop? If the mother board definitely needs replaced I feel confident I can do that. Thanks for any help with this matter.
