    My main computer is exactly that. The Firedog said it had something to do with it's mother???but I don't really understand that, I mean I didn't even know computers had mothers, and even if they did, what would being bored have to do with anything?

    They said it would cost about $75 for a new mother ( and that one's already bored as well, go figger) and $100 to put her in. Does that sound about right to all you guys that are in the know ( since I obviously am not).

    At any rate, that is part of the reason that I haven't been on much lately, that and having house guests and hunting a lot too.

    I will be back as usual soon ( I'm sure to the dismay of many), but I really could use some input on the computer thing since I'm not real savvy on that type of thing.

    Thanx in advance all!

    Keeping in mind, I am the tightwad of this bunch: I don't think it is worth it this time of year. You can get a Dell Inspiron 518 for $330 (without the monitor, which you should still have from your other one). That's a low end model but, 2GB of Ram and 250GB hard drive. Yea, a new motherboard might fix it....this time, but what's next?

    I think that I already owe Firedog a hundred bucks for picking it up and doing a diag. I think that is applied to the installation. I ordered a new MOBO today. I'll check J, and if it isn't applied to the installation I'll take you up on your offer. Thank you. BTW, I was looking to hear from you this past weekend.

    Putting in a new motherboard isn't rocket science and $100 to do it is a rip. Everything else just plugs into the mother.
    Fairly easy fix.
    Lucky you have Jeremy. He works for beer.

    You'll find the Okie kicked back in a big ol' plush leather chair with his feet up on the desk, pullin' on a big ol' Cuban seegar and wheelin' an dealin' on the phone.
