Definitely worth a try. I would agree with Wayne in that
something is causing those motherboards to go bad or appear bad.
I've only had two bad ones and one was from the get go. The other
was the clock wouldn't be remembered and nothing I tried fixed
it. (Well, I did have one other go bad, but it was because the
fire department dumped tons of water on the fire and a tad bit
too much got in the computer. LOL) That's out of about 10
motherboards over about 10 years time.
My best running motherboards are Microstar Systems Inc. (MSI)
FWIW. My aBit was the bad one from the get go causing lockups - I
spent/wasted more time troubleshooting that board that I am not
willing to disclose. <g> The clock one was an old Socket 7
Soltek. I'm always a few years behind the latest and great due to
costs. On this machine I run a 1.1 GHz AMD Athlon, 1GHz
Crucial/Kingston RAM, 256MB Apollo Bloody Monster II video
adapter, no-frills CD burner 52x, Iomega zip drive 100MB, on a
MSI Turbo 2. I has a USB 2 PCI card on it, but it doesn't want to
run on this MB. It does on my wife's MSI MS-6330 KT7 Pro though -
odd, it's an older board (manufactured-wise).
