    If possible, I can't find compatibility! are different types of motherboards, they are many motherboards and the probability is that it will not work :( .. (some people have told me that not all of them are compatible with my PC)
    I would like to know which models are compatible (serial number: etc.)
    and if there is another alternative, it is ebay.?
    thenks..

    Anywhere from the EU won't cost you extra in custom charges, there are a couple boards on Lithuania and UK.

    But it seems the one from the UK is not working, might be just the seller that had a bad OS install, or it might be the board that is defective, might be worth a shot for 50€, if not, the only i7 board on ebay is from the US:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-NP...526404&hash=item340d7f09c7:g:6VMAAOSwflBcr-aQ

    With customs and VAT might cost you around 100-120€ if the seller wants to ship to you.

    This is the UK one, that might work, or not, its up to you:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-NP...505907?hash=item2881fc94f3:g:7N4AAOSwNOFdPcoC

    You might find more in aliexpress/taobao, but for that I need the motherboard part number.

    I can't think of a good reason why a board from a different version of the NP900X3C wouldn't work. I exchanged the mainboards between UK and Indian versions of the NP900X4C and the computers didn't complain. The regional variations in these notebooks were primarily to provide different keyboards plus the CPU/RAM/storage devices might be different - whatever was ordered from the factory by the marketing people in the target country. I think the NP900X3B and NP900X3D mainboards would also work in the NP900X3C which may widen your options. In fact Samsung used the same board and chassis layout for several generations of this notebook but for the NP900X3E onwards changed the display to FHD. The dispaly resolution is hard-coded into the BIOS (this reduces the start-up time) so using the newer board in the older notebook requires editing the BIOS. I recall that someone did this and the procedure is documented somewhere in this forum.

    One likely reason for the Samsung mainboards being faulty is the BIOS bricking problem caused by a poor implementation of UEFI. The members of this forum became more knowledgeable and proficient in unbricking than the Samsung support people. However, success was not guaranteed so I wouldn't recommend buying a board with a BIOS problem in the hope of unbricking unless it was very cheap. If you want to avoid this potential problem ensure that the seller states that the board is in fully working condition. There should be such boards available from notebooks which have been retired for other reasons such as physically damaged (eg broken keyboard / display / hinges).
