Looks like it's another nice rainy day for me today which means laptop repair time! I'm going to start with the Dell M1330 first, since I already have the correct laptop motherboard in hand. His notebook is a M1330 series and needed part number GM848.
This is what Dell's part reference manual says "Motherboard w/ Intel Video PN: | GM848 X635D | On-board Integrated Intel Video Chipset | Dell part #: GM848 is also a replacement for part #: X635D".
This same system board works with all Dell XPS 1330 M1330 Series Notebook PC Computers.
I was happy on how smooth the install went and the customer seemed very happy on not paying Dell $850 for a new motherboard. I could only wonder how much more money Dell would charge to install any laptop PC motherboard?
