    Well u know, not ALL of us are puter genius' and shouldn't have to be! One should be able to trust a company to NOT rip you off! How much do u have to pay for a "long lasting computer" and which brand? I've read so much online and consumer reports, and just ended up more confused! Seems everyone has a different opinion and think the generic, self made puters are the best? I got a shock unplugging a vacuum at Staples the other day so I dont' think I should try building one:)
    And I still submitted my complaint about emachines to the BBB and I'm not the ONLY one.
    PS I thought I just read that Acer bought Gateway in 2007??

    What to do?

    I have an emachine t2984 that died a few months after the best buy warranty expired (basicly worthless anyway).
    PS died & apparently took the mb with it. New ps & green light comes on but that is it.

    I see a lot of conflicting opinions on replacing the mb with a close facsimile & being able to use the existing hd with current data.
    I have an intel d845gvsr board;

    1. if I replace it with another 845gv series board will I be able to use the existing hd with data in place & reactivate windows?
    2. be able to re-install the oem xp home?
    3. have best results from buying another d845gvsr?

    If there is no chance of using the existing oem windows xp that I have I will most likely get a much stronger board & processor.

    Thanks in advance.
