The motherboard is the central hub of all of the internal components in a device. All other components in a device send signals to the motherboard, and the motherboard is usually one of the last components to fail in a device (barring unforeseen circumstances). The following symptoms can be signs of a failing motherboard:

  • Blue screen of death (BSoD)
  • Laptop is running very slow
  • Laptop isn’t booting up properly
  • Laptop keeps freezing
  • Other components aren’t being recognized

If your Lenovo ThinkPad T450 is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, it may be time to replace the motherboard in your device. Follow these instructions to replace the motherboard in your laptop.

Please make sure to disconnect the ZIF connector from the motherboard prior to fully removing it from the device. You can find more information in the third image of step 27.
