Введение

If your Lenovo N23 Chromebook is blue screening, sluggish, and won't recognize hardware, follow this guide to replace the motherboard.

The motherboard is the main control center for the laptop. It helps communicate between each piece of hardware to allow everything to function. A faulty motherboard will not allow the laptop to work properly or work at all.

Before using this guide, try blowing dust off of the motherboard using an electronics duster. Sometimes built up dust can cause errors and symptoms of a failing motherboard. If the laptop still does not work correctly, that indicates that there is a problem with the motherboard.

No special skills are required to follow this guide.
