Hello~
A non tech inclined friend asked me to fix his computer and I have concluded his motherboard shorted. So, I tested the remainder of his hardware and it is all fine.
I am in need of a cheap working socket A board that can handle a sempron 2800+ and 512mb pc2100. If you have anything sitting around I would appreciate offers :toast:

His old board did not have agp, but im sure the upgrade would be appreciated. I could throw a 2600pro in there or something. I did check the psu and it is fine. Anyone close to Chicago have one sitting in their basement?
