    Sad to see this go feet up like so, but would you consider having this repaired or rather just rid off it and upgrade to m18xr2? I can offer to either repair this board for you or byy it from you with the remaining sister board and sata connector and caddy for my project. PM me if interested.

    This is a unique computer and parts aren't available anymore. I have a spare one for myself actually, maybe I'll consider selling it in the future.

    Sadly it seems like the power surge killed my 2960XM cpu, so i have had to use a 2630qm i had to get it running. I tested the cpu in my m17x r4 and got 7 beeps and no lcd turning on, the same happened in the m18x after the mainboard switch but it works with the 2630qm so i guess the 2960xm is dead.
