so it looks like my mobo is dead. the worst. i have the asus p4pe + intel p4 2.6mhz. the asus mobo p4pe isn't sold anymore. in fact i don't think they sell anymore socket 478 that are also chipset 845pe. i know this is bad, but ive forgotten a lot about pc's as i built this years ago. the only thing i know about my CPU is that its an intel p4 2.6.... the mobo i have for it is chipset 845pe, does that mean the only mobo i can get is chipset of 845pe? If anyone can shed some light would be much appreciated! thanks!
