Let me start by saying I am a ***** when it comes to computer hardware, so please bear with me. I have an eMachines T2895 with 2.8 GHz Celeron processor. It is in a frozen state, where it will not power up, but the status light, and the fan is always on. The monitor only displays a self test, then goes into powersave. A friend looked at it and told me that the Mobo was fried. I do not want to lose pics and videos I have stored. If I change the Mobo with a new one that is the exactly the same, will I lose information saved. After I change the Mobo, can I access stored files? Like I said, I'm not good at this, so what is the best way to get my computer working without losing the data I want to keep?
