Hi,

My motherboard has decided to stop working on me and powers up just gives me no display or beep when switching on!

I know all my hardware works as I have taken it all out one by one and put back in etc and also put all the hardware into a older machine and ti all works perfectly!

I am looking for an alternative cheapish to the ASUS P5K SE as I need it to be the same size and features like in this picture as my tower case fits the usbs/audio/power ports as seen in this picture below:

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Forums!

In what region are you located?

Basically, you need an ATX sized LGA 775 motherboard.
These have been discontinued for quite some time so your choices will probably be limited.
Depending on what retailers are in your region, you might be best off looking for an inexpensive used motherboard from eBay.

Most any current motherboard can meet or exceed the input options from your current motherboard.
Unfortunately, all current options will require you to also upgrade, at minimum, your CPU and RAM.

The input options of your current motherboard should still be quite easy to match even with a legacy board however.
The biggest challenge you will find is locating a suitable LGA 775 board at a reasonable price.
Looking to scan.co.uk I find no LGA 775 boards; amazon.co.uk has a few but most are overpriced, used or both.
Ebay.co.uk has Several Options and is probably where you will need to search.
