    Well my wii is a 3.2E that has a full brick (no signal) without bootmii/preloader.
    Im going to send it to Nintendo to fix it.
    But will they change my motherboard to a new one ( i prefer old motherboards, but the one bricked has not a old one but isnt a LU 64 wii)? Will they change my Dvd-drive too? ( The new one cant use Neogamma, but it is strange to change a dvd-drive because unbricking a wii doesnt make sense to change a dvd-drive lol )
    Is it possible to change the dvd-drive if they changed it somehow? so yes how?
    But if i get a new motherboard ( if they replaced my wii motherboard), there are 3 chances right? A. It got the fixed boot 1 and B. is it has the bugged boot 1? or C. they change my motherboard to the same one?

    if you mean your optical drive, then yes you can change that if nintendo gives you one that cannot read dvd-r's. if you mean DRIVEKEY like you are saying, you will not get that back if you send it in, that is considered as a mod chip.

    how did you brick the wii?

    Chances are, you will not get the drivekey back and even then, but there is also the chance you will just get the console sent back and you will have to pay for repair ather than using the warranty.

    Rofl.. no i dont mean that. You understand me wrong lol.
    I mean if i send a wii (that is bricked and has NO modchip, never opened, and has no signal to tv) will they only change my motherboard? Because what i think is.. changing my dvd has nothing to do with the no signal issue.. ( read 1st post)
