Enter the serial no (without the -) here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup
It should give you the parts as used in that machine.
A motherboard there is also known as PLANAR or BDPLANAR.

For my S/N, the BDPLANAR FRU should be 04X1503

Re: [W530] Blank screen & four beeps

Got it ! Thanks again !
FRU: 04W6827

This offer looks to be a good deal, but i have to be sure to receive my FRU or check if other FRU in titles are compatibles.

Thanks for you response. In appearance, the laptop is in good condition.
Which is the FRU for my model ? Can i find it on the system board itself?
