hhmm, troubleshooting motherboards is a tedious process. unfortunatly, there isnt so much a test_mobo.exe,
i find something along the lines of VCOM's Fix-it utilities is a good test(www.v-com.com/product/Fix-It_Utilities_Home.html) Unfortunatly not free, it tests broad components on your motherboard(pretty effectivly i might add). something like BurnInTest will also do this(www.passmark.com/products/bit.htm).
if you are having hardware-specific problems with your pc, what fault-finding steps have you already taken?
EDIT: added links

There are utilities for checking the motherboard. The best free one (IMO) is SiSoft Sandra Lite ( http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/index.html?dir...n=sware_dl_3264 ) Unfortunately, it requires that you boot into Windows in order to use it.
For a bootable solution, I'd suggest something like PC Check from Eurosoft ( http://www.eurosoft-uk.com/ ) Unfortunately, it's very expensive for casual use. Also, it's a generic test that you apply to a specific motherboard - so the results may not show everything that you need to see.

Check the BIOS temp...and take a look at Event Viewer for possible clues.
