    I am starting a new thread, but basically my bios is corrupted and I need a new bios chip or maybe new motherboard. I can't figure out my mother board number though! It's a Dell Dimension 3000, model DMC. The only number engraved into it is E210882, but that's the manufacturer and they make several boards. Any suggestions?

    As a side note, I don't think you don't need to replace the motherboard with an identical motherboard. As long as all of the ports match up on the case you should be ok.
