But here in the US, 2 names pop up on my list. Ask ikenfixit.com and notefix.com
Is this that 2005 Celeron 1.3GHz machine? You may find a new machine to be less than the repair price.
Compaq Presario Model No. M2002 AL
I currently have the above mentioned laptop. It has stopped working. Compaq team inspected the laptop & came to the conclusion that the motherboard has got damaged and needs to be replaced. The total cost for replacement has been quoted at approximately Rs. 18000. As this seems to be a hefty price for a motherboard to me, I am looking for following alternatives:
1. Someone who can guarantee replacement or repair of same motherboard model at a lower price.
2. Can another motherboard model be used, which will come at a lower price? If yes which one can I use??
3. Is data recovery possible? Can I do it myself with the help of another computer or software? If I have to get it done outside then at what rates??
4. If there are some more alternatives which I have not thought of then please guide me.
If cost of getting my laptop up and ready remains heavy, then I may strongly consider the prospect of buying a new one and discarding the current old one after recovering the latter?s data.
