Hi. Sorry don't know much about motherboards. My motherboard has broken. It is a Lenovo Thinkcentre Rev: 0.21.


I spotted a later motherboard revision on ebay Rev: 1.0. 

It has the same Intel 775 duo core socket and the same Ram slots. 


Mine had a Intel G33/31 chipset and the one on Ebay is North Bridge - Intel Q35

South Bridge - ICH9DO


I wondered if this would work as a replacement.

Problem is there is a very good chance the board will not recognize your HD, if so you will need to redo windows.  To activate you will need to phone MS and explain the MoBo change.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
