Re: Laptop Repair - Assessment?
Odds are yes, it's the motherboard. That or a stick of ram, or both RAM and motherboard.
USUALLY, the $50 up front goes to repairs. Every place I know that does that uses it as an insureance that they'll get paid for diagnostic and you won't just hear what it'll take to fix and leave it there. That said, only they can give you a real answer to that one.
Oh, how old is the laptop and how much was it worth when you bought it?
