My PS3 has been down for months, Does the hard drive marry to the motherboard? I replaced the heat paste then it went out again. When I took it to a store I was told the motherboard was burned out, I havent opened it yet. What am I looking for when I do?
What Im trying to figure out is, can I buy a motherboard from any PS3? Do they have to be from the same model? Are they hard to put into the system? My first step is open it and replace the paste. If that doesn't work then I might need a motherboard?
Im not really sure what Im doing. But I see no reason to buy a new PS3 if i can fix this one.
