Default Re: Changing computer motherboard.

OP you can get what is call a port replicator or a docking port. Some are pretty good for what they do.
Some will use the serial port to recreate the other ports you need. Some use the usb or a propritary plug in the back of the laptop.
But the good news is they don't cost an arm and a leg. Just shop carefully and I think you'll be fine.

I had the same problem. I did a motherboard change with dell case. And the power button doesn't work with this case. So I had to break off a power button off my old plastic case and lay it on top off my dell case... Its ghetto but it works. The holes lined up perfectly though.

First of all, this is a 7 year old laptop. The chances of finding a motherboard for that laptop are like finding a needle in a haystack. Also, the reviews from CyberPowerPC.com are very bad. I do not recommend CyberPowerPC.
