My buddy seems to have fried his motherboard. This diagnosis comes from another friend who has built several computers for me and in fact built the pc in question. My friend has very little money and is hoping to find one of these online but has not been able to so far. I have joined the search myself to no avail at this point.

The motherboard in question is the MicroStar MSI KT4AV (MS-6712)

Anyone have any idea where I might find this motherboard? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Without any further description of the problem with the motherboard it's not possible to tell what has happened with it. But the MSI slot A motherboards were in a generation of productions where questionable electrolytic capacitors were used. I've repaired several of these by replacing bad caps.

Here's a picture of a bad cap. Notice that it is bulging on the top, and is leaking at the base. Also notice the flat surface of the top of the capacitors to the left of the bulging one.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
