Wherever you buy motherboards or any computerware that is, stay away from www.totobay.com

Re: Hp 6735b won't boot

I have the same problem with the 5 times blinking LEDs,  today I have revceived a new mainboard from china ("fully tested and brand new"), but the error still persists.

Any suggestion? Has anyone managed this error?


kind regards from Germany

Re: Hp 6735b won't boot

Hi again,


I have send it in to China for exchange. Today I have received the replacement motherboard, but the same error again - 5 times blinking, black screen, no matter if I try to start with or without the daughterboards and interface cables, no matter if I try another CPU or not, another memory or not, if I press the nothbridge chip, the keyboard...

What the hell is going on there? How can I find the real error?

It looks then this motherboard which you bought is defected.

There is one very important rule. Always buy products from a trusted source.

a trusted source?

Oh dear, as long as these "trusted sources" are charging nearly 400 $ or more for a "new" motherboard I will try to keep my money and search for cheaper sources. For this price I will get a good new notebook...

And these sources also claim their parts as new. Aren`t they?

Even a refurbished motherboard will do its work for the rest of the notebooks life.
