Alright, I am faced with replacing a Lenovo Idea center desk top motherboard that was recently spiked during a thunder storm. Although the computer was on a surge protector the spike apparently came through the phone line that was unprotected. Fried the DSL Modem also.
Due to the lack of availability and the ridiculous prices of the CIH67M (K330b) mother board I would like to replace it with a comparable ASUS 1175 socket board.
As this is my first experience with a Lenovo product I was hoping someone would have some insight to any problems of a proprietary nature that may crop up. I.E The system not recognizing the hard drive ala Dell etc. Has anyone had any experience with replacing major components in a Lenovo desk top product? Any and all information/experiences you have had will be greatly appreciated.
