Yesterday my girlfriend accidentally spilt juice on her laptop. Needless to say, it's toast. It won't turn on or anything so I'm thinking the mobo is fried.
The laptop is the Acer Aspire R14 (R5471T-51UN). Because we are both on extremely limited incomes, I am considering purchasing a replacement motherboard for it and attempting the repair myself.
Unfortunately it is nearly impossible to locate a replacement motherboard easily. But I did manage to find one website http://www.impactcomputers.com that has a board advertised as
"NB.G7W11.00P - MAINBOARD R5-471T I5, R5-471T-52EE For Aspire R5-471T-52EE / R5-471T-52EE Notebook"
It's the closest thing I can find and looks a lot like the one in the laptop. Can anyone confirm or comment/recommend me anything?
Thank you all so very much.
