    Your spot on there crazy:giggle:

    The problem with laptops is that many components are integrated into the motherboard which means if any one of those fail it means the entire motherboard needs replaced. On a desktop motherboard although many parts are also integrated these days if one of them does go wrong you can simply stick a PCI card or similar in to give you the functionality back. All this basically means is that it is a common repair to have to replace the motherboard in a laptop.

    What type of laptop is it and what is the fault?
