Hi,
Does anybody know of a device that will test (presumably through the USB port) a MOBO on a laptop. Taking a laptop apart these days is time consuming and dangerous (plastic) I would like to circumvent if possible.
Links would be appreciated especially (but not necessarily) to Ebay.
If not could the Experts tell me what they use

Thanks

One way which I would suggest is to run a live CD on the system.

You can down load any live CD and run it either from USB ( if your laptop supports that) or run it from the CD.
If the live CD runs fine and  you are able to use all the hardware ( for eg USB, wireless etc) then your mother board is OK.

You can get knoppix from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/dist/knoppix/KNOPPIX_V6.7.0CD-2011-08-01-EN.iso
