Hard to find MoBos - what sources are there?

Postby whftherb » Thu May 14, 2015 5:13 pm

Need some help from you experts.

I have two Acer Veriton M265 PCs purchased back in 2010. I need to locate two mobos for these PCs. Checked with the official source, the Acer Parts Store - they're out of stock on these. Looked on eBay, many offerings are "sketchy". So I thought I might get some guidance here from folks that do this more frequently than I.

When you are between a rock and a hard place trying to locate parts like mobos for the above, what sources do you go to for parts? What companies out here offer the best chance at locating what you need? I did find Capital Data in Lansing MI who were most helpful and who tried to help (and they are still looking)....

Thanks for any guidance.

Let me guess, the capacitors between the CPU and the ports on the back have blown. That will happen on your replacement boards too. I think you better contact
to see if you can work out some sort of scheme for recapping all your M265 boards. Yes, even though these are Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors, they look to be KZG series which are known to be bad.
