    Looks to me like time to replace the mb...
    How old is your system?
    Looks like you have a Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q8300 (4M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)?
    If I am correct ...
    Something like this might be worth considering.
    or perhaps Something like this

    BUT... if the mb has been damaged, there is a chance your cpu has been as well.
    This might make it advisable to replace both at once. Some places offer "packages" or "bundles".
    THEN... you have the question of the your power supply...
    And if you change boards, your existing memory may not be compatible with the new board...
