Last month while I was online my pc died and wouldn't restart. The local pc shop tested the PSU and it had died. I replaced it and it still wouldn't start up. I got a new puter a few days later, tried the DDR memory from the old one and it was no good so I'm assuming the mainboard is fried too. I took out the harddrive, DVD burner etc. They were all ok. I slaved the hdd to another puter and got the files I needed off it -pictures etc. The old keyboard won't work anymore and a cordless phone I had plugged into the same surge protector was also fried. It was a slot 478 Celeron 2.6 Ghz eMachine. I'd like to replace the mainboard and get it going again for my brother to replace his Pent 2 500mhz. WOuld a slot 775 board be appropriate? I want onboard graphics, it'll only be for surfing and email. Any suggestions would be appreciated. (Can't get another identical board as far as I can find out, not made anymore) Would it be an ATX board?
