Did you use thermal paste when securing CPU? Sorry to have to ask but we never know the sophistication level of our members. Also, the area had to be "clean" and overuse of paste can also cause the problem.

To make sure computer isn't actually on, connect an external monitor.

Don't bother. I was going to ask about the fan sound anyway. Are you sure you got the correct board?

Dell uses proprietary parts. Just fitting doesn't mean it will work. I went back to one of your previous threads and realize how old your laptop is. Unless you bought the exact MOBO, I'm afraid you're wasting your time.

The disassembly of the old one should be done in a specific order. If not, parts can be ruined before installing the new MOBO.

Live & Learn. Even when using Amazon, you have to be careful with 3rd party sellers.

Since it's a hobby rather than a necessity, why not wait till Amazon restocks them?

I found a ton of stuff when I ask the right question. You really have to learn to protect yourself. Anyway, they're non-accredited by BBB .

I tried to hint in an earlier post, but now I'll be more blunt. Read the reviews thoroughly and if you still wan to use that vendor, well good luck.

From Ecommmerce Platforms:

Take a quick look around the web and you’ll notice that AliExpress doesn’t have the best reviews. A lack of customer support, and issues with Aliexpress products being sub-par in quality are two very common complaints. Product reviews often say that they feel the items are a ripoff, or that they think they got scammed because a product never arrived.

The Better Business Bureau revoked the AliExpress license because of how poor the customer reviews actually were. Consumer concerns often included things like the receipt of damaged products, or the wrong product. Another common issue was difficult receiving refunds. When AliExpress received a rating of “F” on the BBB, their accreditation was removed.

The most common issues that we see in a large number of reviews include:

  • Problems with shipping: Because you’re purchasing items from overseas, there’s no guarantee that the shipping time is going to be great. Often, receiving your online shopping can take months, rather than just days or weeks.
  • Issues with the product quality: Although AliExpress products often come with low prices, they can suffer from quality issues too. Many people complain that their items were either broken, or just badly made, leading to low star ratings.
  • Incorrect products: There doesn’t seem to be a lot of effort from the AliExpress sellers to ensure that the right product gets to the right customer. Countless reviews talk about receiving the wrong item. Many products are completely different to what the customer ordered.
  • Refunds: If you do complete an order with AliExpress and have a problem with it, getting a refund can be very difficult. This makes it harder for business owners to give their customers a good level of support. A lot of consumers end up feeling scammed.
  • Missing items: Sometimes, buyers complain that they never receive their items at all. When this happens, it can be difficult to receive a full refund. This means you’re left feeling as though you paid for nothing.
Now go to Aliexpress Reviews and Complaints | aliexpress.com @ Pissed Consumer for more bad news.
