blinking capslock, founf burned chip

pavilion dv7
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello everybody,

 

I am having problems with my HP. When I start the computer, in runs, but the screen ramins blank and caps lock continues to blink.  I have tried everything but nothing worked, so I decided to dissasemble the computer. What I have found inside is one item that looks burned and damaged, but I have no idea what that is and if this is the reason that I am having ploblems with the screen.

 

Can somebody please help me... Is this fixable or not?

 

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

 

Best regards,

Fixable by replacing the motherboard. Post back if you want help with that.

Hello,

 

Thnak you very much for your quick reponse... So do you think this chip is causing the problems?

 

Replacing the motherboard, will cost almost as much as the computer is worth...or am I wrong? 

 

best regards...

No question about it. That's an ugly burn. You obviously know how to remove and replace the motherboard. Do you know the part number? Replacement motherboard will run $75-300 can't know until I know model of laptop or part number of motherboard. Also there are services online that can repair the board using highly advanced equipment I am pretty sure you do not have. Cost is around $100 for that.

That is not from HP but Microsoft and says nothing about your computer. Look inside the battery bay. 

 

It is a dv7-xxxxaa where x is numbers and a is letters. Do you know what processor and video it has?

Here's the Service manual:

You might be able to find a better deal and US vendor if you do some searching around by the motherboard part number. Reuse the processor, heatsink, RAM, wifi card, etc.

A new computer is a lot more than $129 it costs for the board. But I have to be honest. Used to be an AMD fan but that was years ago and in today's market I would have nothing but an Intel Core processor, preferably an i7 at least a 4th generation.
