Initially, I thought it may be a hard drive problem. I have taken the hard drive out, plugged it into one of them usb adapters, and I am now able to access everything on my laptop. So, hard drive doesnt seem to be broken. This leads me to believe that it may be the motherboard which is broken, as I assume this is the most likely thing to break.
So, my silly question is, am I able to take the motherboard out of a spare laptop I have, and get it into the brokern laptop? Or are motherboards laptop dependent, meaning if I have a HP laptop, I need a HP motherboard?
Sorry, one more thing. Is there any way to isolate a hardward problem? If there is a need to buy a new motherboard, I dont really want to do this unless I am certain it is the motherboard which is broken.
