Model no va73

Currently i have the 750m motherboard and found 2 sites where i want to order this motherboard but 2 are different versions and i was wondering if they are both supported?

    Hi Topper89,

     

    According to your pictures, the part number of your original motherboard is:

    Spoiler
    NB.M7411.001MAIN BD.N14PGT.4GB  (GT 750M)

     Two ways to buy it:

    • If you use the version pre-installed of Windows, you have to buy it from your Acer parts department.
    • If you use a full version/box version of Windows, you can buy it anywhere. E.g. here.

    Information about the Windows OEM liscense:

    Spoiler
    Microsoft OEM:

    "Generally, an end user can upgrade or replace all of the hardware components on a computer—except the motherboard—and still retain the license for the original Microsoft OEM operating system software. If the motherboard is upgraded or replaced for reasons other than a defect, then a new computer has been created. Microsoft OEM operating system software cannot be transferred to the new computer, and the license of new operating system software is required. If the motherboard is replaced because it is defective, you do not need to acquire a new operating system license for the PC as long as the replacement motherboard is the same make/model or the same manufacturer's replacement/equivalent, as defined by the manufacturer's warranty.

    The reason for this licensing rule primarily relates to the Microsoft Software License Terms and the support of the software covered by those terms. The Microsoft Software License Terms are a set of usage rights granted to the end user by the PC manufacturer, and relate only to rights for that software as installed on that particular PC. The system builder is required to support the software on the original PC. Understanding that end users, over time, upgrade their PCs with different components, Microsoft needed to have one base component "left standing" that would still define the original PC. Since the motherboard contains the CPU and is the "heart and soul" of the PC, when the motherboard is replaced (for reasons other than defect) a new PC is essentially created. The original system builder did not manufacture this new PC, and therefore cannot be expected to support it."

FAQ & Answers

  • Hello,

     

    You'll find a white sticker with a barcode near the memory slots. There is a string of characters under this one.

    1. Could you give me the first ten characters? Only the first ten.
    2. Important question: Do you use  the pre-installed version of Windows (shipped with the laptop)?

    Hi,

     

    The graphics card itself it is soldered to the motherboard and it's not user replaceable, you need good skill and special equipment to replace the graphics card. I think that the CPU has a socket as I saw on some youtube videos but I am not 100% sure. Somebody could tell you for sure if they have access to the service manual of the notebook.

    So you'll need a new Windows license key (E.g. Windows full version/box version).
