I have a late '95 HP machine and from what I can tell the mother board is burnt but can't see anything. I've been on different MFG sites but I (newegg.com , was recomended) am not sure what mother board will work for the PC I have. I would like to fix it for my wife to use.
If you know of another MFG (cheaper) then by all means please let me know.
A little background on it.
Plugged in a ZEN (I-pod type of deal to charge it) & smelt some smoke, just like a puff. PC froze up & I shut it down. Would not restart. Can't see any burn marks on the MB, power supply seems to be working, all fans/lights work. I unplugged the power cbl from the H-drive & nothing, then I unplugged the gray strip as well as the power cbl to the HD and nothing shows on the monitor. The monitor will not turn on, just the yellow light comes on like on stand by.
Sorry for the long post but ............
