How to Fix a Damaged Motherboard ~ The motherboard is one of the most important elements of the computer. It has an important role in controlling the various functions in it. The motherboard or computer boards are responsible for managing the layout and coordination of components, such as ensuring performance between RAM, Processor, VGA, input devices and others can work together to allow the computer to function as it does.

Power Connector, BIOS, memory slot are some of the important components whose functionality is very influential to PC performance. However, it’s not strange if the motherboard is having problems so users are constantly panicking and want to hurry to take it to the repair shopper.

Wait a while! You can try repairing the damaged motherboard as discussed below.

First we have to first understand some of the causes of the damage before setting!

* Power Supply issues

The motherboard has two power supply connections. Perhaps one of the two extensions is apart from working properly. The power supply will be assigned to distribute current to the entire motherboard circuit to ensure all components in it work.

If the power supply is problematic as dead or unstable, your computer’s motherboard will not work normally. So you have to make sure the computer’s power supply is working normally.

* There are Components That Are Not Installed Right

Sometimes there are some components that are not properly installed that cause the motherboard to not work.

These are some alternatives to repairing damaged self-made motherboards:

If the motherboard is having problems due to power supply, then this usually causes the PC to die completely.

Therefore, make sure you unplug / unplug the power cables connected to the power supply, open the charging computer and disconnect the power supply which is not working.

If you are well versed in electronic repairs, power supply damage can be repaired, but if the damage is severe, you should replace it with a new supply power supply.

There are several causes that make the motherboard die like a non-rotating fan, Clear CMOS is not in the right position, and the chipset is not connected.

If there is a problem with one of the above mentioned components, then you can fix it or replace it if one of the components is damaged.

If there is no damage to the components in the motherboard then you just need to clean it with the tiner. Then, wait until dry and close again and try to turn it on.

If after step-step is done, but the desktop is still not lit, it means there is still a problem usually associated with the processor.

Open the chasing, and notice the physical condition of the processor, whether there is a physical damage or the motherboard is damaged.


You can reopen the motherboard and check whether the processor fan is too hot or not. If yes, you need to replace the processor fan with a new one. If the processor fan is still fine, the problem may be on the memory card. If the PC is switched on there beeps 3 times its meaning has a problem.

Therefore, clear the memory by unplugging it first in case the PC is dead. Then plug it in again and try it again.

If the above method fails to restore the damage to your PC’s motherboard, then there may be damage to the IC. This means you can not fix it yourself, as it does require specialized IT skills. We recommend that you bring the PC to a professional so the damage does not get worse.
