Computer Repairs

Well, me old trusty computer bit the dust while we were away. Odd,
because I left it powered down and unplugged from everything. I tried
everything, reseating all of the cards, new power supply, but none of
those brought it to life. My fans would come on but it would not
boot. I could not even get into the BIOS so I suspected the mobo which
was confirmed at my local computer shop. I bought a new motherboard and
in the process upgraded my CPU to an AMD XP2700. Everything seems to be
running just fine. Windows XP did not hickup at all putting in the new
hardware but we made sure to use another Gigabyte motherboard with a Via
chip on since that is what the old one used.
