Hi everyone, I was hoping to get a little help with my "issues." I have done some searching and found out that: 1.) My wife should not have bought and emachine 2.) The first time it fried the mobo she should have had the guy replace the PS too However, she is my new bride and of course I am coming to "rescue" her from the computer woes. The problem is that I am such a freakin' new guy I can't even find a compatible motherboard. Its an emachine t2742... i looked up the specs but can't seem to find a good match of motherboard that will allow me to use the current RAM. Cheap and reliable is what I am going for here as this computer just surf's the net, and "office" type tasks. Please help me save this computer as it will assist in me winning brownie points that I can turn into certain "rewards" that seem to get more scarce when you get married. Thank you all!
