Re: Broken Motherboard Componet (Dell Insp. 9300)?
You do actually need the same board, unless you plan to do some heavy moding (which I have done, it's not worth it). The problem with dell is, when you start to take components off the old mobo you will notice pins broken, ram installed improperly, etc... At least this is what happened to me... twice.
