    Hey fellas. My mother in law had a power outage quite some time ago. When it happened her pc would not turn back on. Is there any way to check to see if the motherboard is still good? I would like to get it working as a secondary computer. Also, how can I tell what kind of power supply is required for that motherboard? Because I have tried a couple power supplies, and one was from a OLD 166mhz pc, while ther other was from a 866mhz, but it seems like the ends or where it plugs into the motherboard are different in shape. Any suggestions? This is a HP 900mhz pc, it would be nice for web browsing and other task. Thanks for any help!

    Post the make/model of the motherboard and we can probably find a manual for it.
