Ran some diags on my system (after it beeps several timess and sometimes gives me the blue screen of death). My diags say that the 1394 controller has failed.

Is this something that can be fixed without replacing the motherboard? Is it possible that it is the connector on the case itself?

Welcome Back! :) 

Corruption fix:
1. Disconnect all 1394 {Firewire} cables from the MOBO
2. Open the Device Manager
3. Expand the [+] IEEE 1394 bus host controller, and right-click & Delete ALL listed devices
4. Restart
Failure:
5. Open the Device Manager
6. Expand the [+] IEEE 1394 bus host controller, and right-click & Update ALL listed devices
7. Restart
8. A more complex solution changing {Resource tab} IRQ addressing conflicts; not for the newbie.

Conflicts:
Run MSCONFIG as follows and look at the Event log will reveal the problem(s). Through each process attempt to duplicate the problems.
1. Load Diagnostic
2. Load Diagnostic + Microsoft
3. Load Diagnostic + Microsoft + Known {Apple, etc - SERVICES}
4. Load Diagnostic + Microsoft + Known {Apple, etc - SERVICES} + Startup {KNOWN}
5. Then start adding the rest 2-3 at a time; it is a slow process

Disable fix: {If you do NOT use ANY 1394/Firewire devices then Diabable:
1. Disconnect all 1394 {Firewire} cables from the MOBO
2. Open the Device Manager
3. Expand the [+] IEEE 1394 bus host controller, and right-click & Disable ALL listed devices
4. Restart
5. Start into BIOS and Advanced | Onboard 1394 Controller {Disable}
6. Exit & Save.
7. Restart

In addition, you might want to debate about using at least {P6T 1201 BIOS}.

Good Luck! Let us know if it fixes the problem(s).
