Default Someone recommend me a motherboard...

A thunderstorm ****ed mine right up the ass.

Here's what I had:

http://www.gigabyte.us/Products/Moth...ProductID=2510

I'm hoping the rest of my components aren't shot. I know the hard drives work.

Running DDR2 800 and a Core 2 Duo 6700. Price range: $100.

I've got this motherboard, and I loved it. Makes a great hackintosh. That being said, I think the Asus boards are the best right now.

Either that, or the newest GA-965p

Can't name specifics except that if you have the cash and like games get an SLI board so you can use two video cards.

I recommend www.newegg.com for low prices

If I were dying and suggested a motherboard, would you wish ill-will upon me?

I'm a big fan of the nForce chipset, and Asus has never steered me wrong. $130 and shipping is free.

Naw, fat boy would still be able to type.

And in all reality, I dont wish Bobo harm. I do wish, however, that the thunderstorm that "sodomized" his motherboard would have instead knocked out his internet service leaving the place a clown free zone for a while.

OK. Hardware is fixed. Now I can't boot into windows.

I know, I know, I should do a fresh install but really don't feel like it right now. Anyway, it gets to the Windows XP booting animation, but after that it bluescreens. It never gets to the logon screen.

I though I might need to fix the master boot record, but not sure. The message I got in recovery console said it might **** up my partitions so that scared me.

Is it a problem with the MBR or something else? I'm thinking maybe Windows is looking for my old motherboard when it boots up and obviously isn't finding it...I was thinking maybe I could install the new drivers in safe mode but trying to get into that gives me a bluescreen, too.

The scary thing is that's close to the one I got. This is a little newer.
