Hey guys,
I am replacing my motherboard on my Dell Inspiron N5050 and I am not sure which one I need to get? When I go to places like newegg they don't list if it is compatible with PC. So my question is can you guys tell me which one(s) I could get? Any help is great thanks.

You have to have the same motherboard that is in it for a laptop. Go to dell and look up your specific model number, so you get the exact board. Then you can search for the board on google shopping to find your best price. Make sure you go with a reliable company. Buying directly from dell would be my suggestion, here is a link for inspiron motherboards for sale

If you are under dell warranty I would let them replace it because the main board is complex circuit board It would be a Advance motherboard re installation task on your part.

Thanks for the info... Yeah just doing some college classes and been building computers, its more of a project computer for me. I been doing research and gonna basically see if I can do it.

Unfortunately warranty doesn't cover it even though I am under the year but when I sent it in they said it was water damaged which I have never spilled anything on it. They wanted to charge be $500 to replace the parts they wanted to replace the keyboard and screen. No idea why with both working perfectly before it stopped working. Anyways thanks for the help guys, appreciate it.
