Having problems with your Toshiba Satelite 5205-S505 Notebook ?

I have an old Toshiba 5205-S502 and it died buy new motherboard?

\015 Some years ago, I had this Toshiba which I really loved the design\015\012and everything about it. It died on me after 3 years and I took it to\015\012get fixed and they said it was the motherboard and might be easier\015\012to buy a new computer.\015\012\015\012I've kept it, in a cool environment, smoke free, and eventually just bought\015\012a new desktop. This was in 2006. Now some years later, I'm wondering\015\012since I really like the design and just would like a little PC laptop\015\012secondary, would it still be possible today to get a new motherboard\015\012for this and how much would it cost.\015\012\015\012Could I upgrade the CPU and such from the original?\015\012\015\012And again, is it worth it? The hard drive is still intact.\015\012\015\012thanks\015

Answers :

Yes, it is possible for you to get another motherboard for it, but I dont guarantee that you will get a new one. It all depends on your country though, because here in my country you can easily get a motherboard for it, for just 142dollars and even if you are very lucky, you can get A very new one, which will be removed from a laptop of the same type for you....well I would say it's going to be worth it ONLY
if you want to be using it for low-memory demanding applications...or better still you can just upgrade it...i.e your RAM size...not the CPU this time around.
