    And the other problem, if you dont replace it with the exact same over priced mobo then you will need to go out and buy a proper windows install disk too.

    When e-crap machines blow their PSU they also take out the motherboard. This will require replacement of both. It probably would be more cost effective to just replace the system and salvage the hard drives.
