Dell Inspiron 660. Bought it in 2012

 

A couple weeks ago lightning struck my house and fried nearly everything plugged into an outlet. It blew right through my surge protector and fried my computer. I've taken my computer to a shop and we've narrowed it down to being either the motherboard or the power supply. I bought a new power supply and that wasn't it so the guy said it's my motherboard that's the issue. I thought I knew what it was after doing a little research but ended up buying the wrong motherboard. It was only $25 off ebay so I'm not THAT upset about it. I don't want to go buy anything else until I know for sure what the motherboard is that originally came with my computer. I have the fan taken off of it right now so that's what that big spot in the bottom right is but I'm sure you guys already know it. I can take better pictures and put them on here if necessary.

I thought I could fix it myself and I still think I can if I get the correct parts. I don't know a lot about computers so don't flame me too hard please. :) Thanks in advance!

Going by what it says on it, it's a MIB75R /MH_SG MLK motherboard.

Looks just like this one here:

Just to the left of the CPU, next to the lower left corner of the socket, is the white label with a QR code and text next to DPN (Dell Part Number).  Either post it or do an ebay search for Dell (that part number).  THAT will be an exact replacement.

So what is the Dell part number printed next to the CPU socket? (Your pic won't let me blow it up and read it!)

It used to be years ago that Dell provided a service tag number and with that number and going to dell support you could see exactly what came in you Dell computer.

 

Here is Dell Support:

http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Products/

 

 

So what parts do you think you need to replace.

Are your capacitors bloated? if that is the case those can be found just about anywhere on line and are easy to replace if you have good soldering skills.

Power regulators can also go bad from a power surge.

 

If you can find another motherboard you would probably be better off. There are lots of the same type of Dell motherboards on ebay but one needs to be sure of what is being purchased.

If you use the service tag number at Dell's support, you get almost everything; the date it was shipped, what was in the PC, software and BIOS upgrades, the service manual, and more.  The one thing that is lacking; though, are the part numbers (!!!) and I have cursed at them for over a decade about it.  Worse, since Dell subcontracts with numerous manufacturers, there can be several different part numbers used in the same model of PC.

Again; though, in the pic is a white square with a QR code on it next to the CPU socket.  On it is DP/N with the Dell part number which is what we want.  The picture posted is too low res for it to be readable.  What is that part number?
