P6831FX motherboard died, replaced it with a P7805U

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I basically took my Gateway P6831FX and turned it into a ghetto Gateway P7805U with a motherboard swap. Went from a T9300 @ 2.5GHz dual core to a T9900 @ 3.06GHz dual core, 667MHz FSB to 1066 MHz FSB, 4Gb of 667MHz RAM to 8Gb of 1066MHz RAM, NVidia 8800m 516Mb GPU to NVidia 9800m 1Gb GPU, and a SATA Blu-ray player... Now all that's left is a new screen, eventually... The only problem I'm having is the power button from my P6831 didn't match up to the P7805 motherboard. I have some windows stand-by button or something that I can use to power up the system but I was wondering what the difference is between the models? Do the 7805's have the power button connection through the media bar ribbon cable?

Uhm... well... it might be worth it to find a dead P7805 laptop and buy it just for the case. redface.gif

Was kinda worried this might happen. From what I know, the two models were identical... standing side by side, they have almost no differences. Granted the 78XX machines were the updated laptops... That might be the reason it's built differently. To keep people from doing just this.


The plus is that you added a VERY huge cool factor onto your current machine. biggrin.gif FrankenLaptops are always awesome. biggrin.gif

I'm hoping I can find just a used media bar, I don't need the whole case just the plastic cover above the keyboard.With the board of course... The only difference I can tell is the power button ribbon and the P6831FX has the windows stand-by button.
