Hi there, I trying to find a short on my motherboard,I dont know which component causes a short, I use a multimeter but it always shows zero since there is a short all over basically when I connect a multimiter to the postivie and the negative end it always gives us zero ohms resistance since it is shorting, but where, that I can't figure out. Any help would be appreciated on what equipment to buy, Thank you Tom
How to find a short on the motherboard
^^I have been trying to figure out your statement before going any further here!^^
You swapped out the part(s) and one of them still doing this! Which one? Did one unit work before? Could it be possible that both comps are bad?
You have 2 exact computers. Let us name it a) and b). Let us suppose that a) works and b) doesn't.
After swapping out the parts, is b) now working?
One of the unit works perfect , but the other one not . Shuts off after 7 seconds . I thought is some part and swapped them , but without success.
Both are Sony VGN-NR498E .
Last i left motherboard + ram and cpu and turn on but the same result .
Its black screen it doesn't shoes anything and shut down . 7 seconds
I have 2 computer one it works fine other one stopped working and i decided to swapped all parts to diagnose where the problem comes from .
