Default Laptop motherboards

I usually use newegg or tigerdirect to buy my parts for computers. I have recently come across a toshiba satellite a215 that needs a new motherboard. I can not find this part on new egg or tigerdirect. Does anyone know a trusted site that sells these new or in good condition?

You will not find the part unless you contact Toshiba or you look via Ebay or a site like craigslist

Just be sure that its the motherboard! i cant even count the amount of times i have fixed laptops for people because the computer store they went to told them that it was the motherboard, when in reality, it was just the ram. Most laptop manufactures use crap ram, even Toshiba! It's worth double checking!
