MSI MS-6368 DOA!

'98 A-Open with MSI MS-6368 Motherboard. I restore and modify old VWs and had just downloaded and catergorized almost 500 photos in Photoshop, getting ready to download to CDRWs. I decided to finish any neccessary Emails (about 30 minutes worth) prior to starting and she crashed. Having some Computer electrical experience, I ran some tests and almost got out my BMF. A good mechanic has at least one and I understand that quite a few ITs keep one ..... but, well hidden. I know it's old but, so am I. At 64, I'm just an old fart that would rather fix something (myself, that is) than get a new one. Being an antique, one likes to keep a few around. I do believe in spending a bit more, however, if I can upgrade and/or get something better. I'm interested in knowing if there are other boards that may be more readily available that would interchange with the MS-6368? I am tending to blame this on a recent storm that repeatedly knocked off the power, a few days prior to the crash.

Any suggestions will be considered.............

  1. Pricewatch has several pentium III boards listed under motherboards. Some with via and some with Intel chipsets. Can't really recommend a board. It's been too long since I ran with a p3. It's a good time for an upgrade, if you live near a Fry's electronics. They still have a few cpu-motherboard combos for under $100 in their sales ad.
