I have a Dell Studio 1558, model PP39L which is in need of a motherboard replacement. My motherboard's model is MTN40.
I was wondering if it these following models can be used instead: G936P or CGY2Y.
Are there any other models which are compatible with my model?
Thanks for the reply. I could not find the number online also.
I asked Dell Customer service for the motherboard model number and this was the one that they gave me.
My laptop has a core i5 processor with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470, 1GB graphics card.
Do you think CGY2Y would be compatible?
Thanks for the help.
G936P is an Intergrated videocard motherboard. CGY2Y is a discrete videocard motherboard but the video card is soldered onto the motherboard.
Studio 1558 with discrete video is powered by 90 W E-Series AC adapters and the Studio 1558 with integrated video by a 65 W E-Series AC adapter.
Please reply for further questions.
CGY2Y has ATI video; G936P has Intel. To make the switch, you'll also need to replace the heatsink and the fan assembly - the one for ATI video doesn't fit the Intel UMA board and vice-versa.
You'll need both parts in addition to the mainboard.
To swap only the mainboard, you'll need a board with ATI video:
(one example; there are others).
