  1. Upgrading would obviously be the most recommended.. What makes you think that your motherboard is failing.?
  2. Your complete system please.

    We paid a guy this morning to come out as for the last 6 months the computer will either boot up or I will just get the black screen with no signal on the monitor, and then sometimes whilst working it will just turn off. He said the motherboard is failing

    what do you think?

    the mother board is a socket 775 dual channel support, cpu family intel (r) core (TM)2 cpu 6320 @ 1.86 GHz model 15, stepping 6.

    CPU - Genuine Intel

    Mem Cap 4096 mb

    Is this enough info?
  5. It sounds more like a falling power issue.. Could be the motherboard or could be the PSU also..
  6. is there anyway to check as the problem is intermittent?
  7. Mention your brand and rating of your PSU. If its a low quality generic one and you have been using it for a long time. It maybe nearing the end of its life.
  8. The safest approach would be to get a good quality PSU first.. I call it safe because even if the PSU does not turns out to be the actual problem, you'll be better served with your purchase for a long time.. Either of the Corsair CX 400 or the VX 450 should be enough to handle your rig..
