    It's a micro-ATX AM2+ board. So any similar board that you can find (or the exact same board even), should work.

    A new board basically means a new computer. Aboout the only difference is that you could move the processor over if you got a compatible board.

    Not sure what "tests" you may have done, but I know of none that a normal user could use that could diagnose a bad board definitively. Certainly not any tests that are software-only. What symptoms has your system had?

    What is the make and model? Did Windows come with it? It is possible that if you get a new board, you will also need to buy a new copy of Windows if the one installed is OEM.

    As for tests. I have many spare parts that work and ive replaced everything in the system, (a motherboard that is compatable.) different power supply, new ram, a new harddrive Windows xp 32 bit and new cpu...basically ive tryed all my spare working parts with the motherboard and i have the same problem...

    i didnt mean to come off as a jerk in that i was just naming off the things ive tryed.

    Not at all. I just wanted to make sure that you didn't decide this based on "vibes", wild assumptions, or some freeware from CNET. I don't mean to be a jerk, either. :D I just would not want you to throw money away.

    OK. So if you need a new board, you may want to explore the consequences of that as far as your Windows installation goes, unless you have a retail copy of your OS and you can just reinstall it if you need to.

    If that is not an issue, then forget I mentioned it.
