I know there is a wealth of information here on replacing emachines motherboards, some of it seems a little beyond my understanding though and I want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I spend any more money so please bear with the newest emachines thread I have an emachines t2482, and of course, the mother board is shot. I am going to replace the Power Supply, and I bought an Asrock K7VM3 Socket A (Socket 462) VIA KM266Pro Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - OEM. I am a complete ***** when it comes to computers, so, hypothetically, if you were going to tell a complete ***** how to install this new mother board, how would you do it? The guy that sold it to me tells me it should be just a matter of hooking it up and running the restore cd. It sounds too good to be true, but I can't afford a new system and I'm willing to give it a shot fixing it. He also mentioned that I might have to update my bios? What's a bios? lol Also, can you reccomend a good replacement powersupply?
