Motherboard fried. If I can find the same 3 year old motherboard to replace it, I should be back soon. If I need to get a different motorboard and install everything, going to be a week or so. If I need a newer motorboard which requires me to get all new shit, I'll see ya in a year.

Find a motherboard with the same chipset, and you will be ok. You do not need to find a exact match. Windows will be able to update itsself with the new hardware from a different motherboard.

Remove the chipset driver in protected mode and when it asks you to restart computer just turn it off and replace the motherboard.

When starting up with new motherboard it should work. If not there are some possibilites to force motherboards to load and install the right driver via the repair console which should start up in any case, even if the protected mode itself yields only bluescreens.

My Win2000 was installed in 1999 and survived now 3 MoBo and CPU upgrades.

When ya buy a new MoBo and want to keep using your old harddisk/cdrom/dvd make sure the MoBo still has (P)ATA interfaces to connect to them. Many new boards only offer SATA. Alternatevely ya can get a cheap PATA I/O card if ya cannot find or want whatever boards are still out there with PATA interfaces.

Just worth mentioning cause I hear often people not aware of it and only find out the hard way when they try to connect their harddrives and don't see where it goes to.

I ordered the motherboard last Monday and paid for 3 day shipping hoping to have it by Friday so I could be back by Saturday. Well, lo and behold, they didn't even ship the shit until Thursday thus making the 3 day shipping meaningless. But, my fault. They explain 3 days from order to shipping and I failed to read it. So, looks like another week goes by before I return. Assuming the motorboard works in the first place.

Anybody wanna give me 5 grand so I can make a new computer from scratch?

Wouldn't making it from computer parts be easier?

I make the parts from scratch. Then the computer from parts. I even mine the ore myself to use on while making the parts.

I believe in doing it all from start to finish myself so I know it is done right.

I have my own chemical lab creating the plastics and rubbers I will require.

I even have naked dancing girls overseeing the whole operation.

WTF!! I got the motorboard today. So, if all goes according to plans, and you know damn well it won't...I should be around this weekend. Maybe you people who have a clue on some new things to do in the new expansion could let me know. Or, maybe I'll just get drunk tonight and spend the weekend in bed with a hangover. Oh, so many choices in life.
