489Inspiron 9100 with fried motherboard
- Sep 30, 2007Apologies in advance for being a bit off-topic. This isn't about the
XPi but it is about a Dell laptop.
I have a nice Inspiron 9100 that was unfortunately used during a
thunderstorm. I took it to the local tech and he said he's seen lots
of these and the cost would be about $700 to $800 to fix. That seems
way high for a motherboard replacement.
Is that the going rate? Are Dells really that sensitive to power surges?
