Having problems with your Gateway GM5072 Desktop PC ?

I have Gateway GM5072 and the computer won't boot. I checked the hd and it is fine. I believe the MB may have failed. If so, are there any newer and faster mother boards out there that will fit in the case? Thank you, Mark


Answers :

From the documents I can find, it seems like all you would need is an ATX motherboard that has a socket AM2 and accepts DDR memory. It will be difficult to find a modern motherboard with DDR support, but there will be many more options if you are willing to upgrade to DDR2 memory. Here is a Newegg motherboard search for AM2 (remember, that AM2+ is a different technology).\012
