Q: My motherboard in my Acer 5920 laptop needs replacing and I have been quoted £250 is this accurate? Also can you swap a hard drive from an Acer laptop to another make laptop?

    That’s $415 for us Americans. I’m not sure what the computer market is like in the UK, but that sounds pretty steep. I’d get a second opinion on your laptop and see if you really need that motherboard replaced.

    As for swapping harddrives, the drive should work fine, however you’ll need to reinstall the operating system on the new drive to get everything running correctly.
