    Rebuilding a T100TA

    I've had an Asus T100TA for a few years now. A couple years ago the sound went out and I found a new mainboard on Ebay. I installed it and re-installed win 10 and used it with no problems.
    Recently, the sound began to go bad, and I decided to swap out the mainboard again. I found a place that sells mainboards and bought not only a board for my T100TA, but also a new board for my HP laptop. When they arrived, I installed the mainboard in the T100TA and have had nothing but problems. At first after installing win 10 home, the red charging light wouldn't come on and I had no sound volume control. Not only that, but the micro SD card reader doesn't register my micro SD. I've plugged it into a USB adapter and the computer sees it fine.
    After a few rounds of updates and re-starts the volume controls appeared and the charge light started working. A few more updates and both quit working again. Right now after attempting to wipe and re-install win 10 again I'm getting nowhere. The charging light stays out, the sound control has a red x, and the micro SD card reader doesn't work.
    I've written the place I bought it from and requested either a replacement or a refund. Looking on Ebay, I see plenty of inexpensive replacement boards purporting to be for the T100TA, but I also see a number of different part numbers even though the specs seem to be the same.
    So my basic question is what if any are the differences between some of these boards, and which one should I be looking at to fix my transformer? Are there some versions that are incompatible with the T100TA? I know there were some variants like the T100T and a few others. I'd like to be sure I'm getting the right one for my tablet.

    Thanks,

    Tony

    i have got a t100ta and a t100tam, inside the mainboard is layed out almost the same, and from what i can see from google most of the t100 family have the same board layout for all the conecters, the chi boards are a lot diffarent so dont go for one of them.

    my t100TA really doesnt like moden SD cards but my TAM loves them, hell my 256GB card works fine in the TAM but the TA just doesnt want to know, but thats some thing to do with a fault in the CPU as Intel has made fixes for them

    I found the windows 8 sound drivers and got that working finally, but I still can't get the micro SD card to recognize. I know the card is good, I've tested in other devices. Anyone have any suggestions?

    have you tryed a different SD card, an older one would be best to try it with and see if it works?

    my train of thought here is the T100TA is fussy with cards, one t100ta could be find with a card the other just doesnt want to know
