Dead Mobo, Need CHEAP replacement.

Mobo: Chaintech NVF4 something something
CPU: AMD 4400+ (Socket 939)
GFX: NVidia 8500
PSU: Corsiar CX430
Uses: Checking E-mail, Watching movies (not blu-ray)

I have reason to believe the mobo is dead. Fans Spin (when plugged into a working connector), Power light comes on, nothing else. All components have been tested and work in a separate system (haven't tested the CPU).

So my quest is; what is the cheapest replacement I can do? I am not worried about upgrading, as the whole system will be scrapped by year end. The only real requirements is that the board supports IDE and Sata.

    You know you're going to need a new motherboard/cpu and most likely memory right?

    Or go to ebay/craigslist and look for some 939 socket motherboards.
  2. You'll have to try E-bay. They don't make those chipsets anymore.
  3. Thats what I was thinking.

    Damn, I was hoping there was something I was overlooking.

    Thanks for the help :)
