Question Can motherboard be repaired?

My friend is a computer teacher and has five computers at home. One of his computers got nuked. A service centre suspected that the motherboard got killed. He then transferred his Lan card from the nuked motherboard to another machine and the new motherboard showed the same symptoms as the motherboard that got nuked before. Could it happen that his lan card killed his motherboard?
And Can nuked motherboard be repaired ? Please answer, anyone

It's possible for a damaged LAN card to kill the motherboard. But try removing the LAN card and see if the motherboard can boot up normally.

Anything is possible. But is it worth repairing? I don't think so.

You might as well just replace the motherboard.

That motherboard is no longer available in the market(Intel D845GEBV2). besides I won't interfere in my friend's matter. He just wished to know and hence I reported the problem here....


Anyway, thanx a lot for the information.....

Well any motherboard can probably be repaired ,but from an economic and efficiency point of view, it may not be viable. You can currently buy a E2160 dual core and a LGA775 motherboard with HD audio and 2 gig of ram for less than $250 AUD...this board also has integrated 7 series graphics...you have to ask yourself is it worth fixing...the speed of the new system will blow away any socket 478 P4 rig...Anyway just my 2 cents...

Actually in India, where we live, computers are very costly according to the economy of our country because every part of the computers has to be imported from foreign countries. Even the upper middle classes think twice before buying a new computer. That's why this problem has arised.
Besides ,what do you mean by 'the speed of the new system will blow away any socket 478 P4 rig...Anyway just my 2 cents..' ???
Thanks a lot for your reply.......

Ahh.. You are from India. Yeah, computers are more expensive over there.

What Spanner said is true. What he means is you can replace the motherboard and processor with a new and cheap LGA775 motherboard and CPU which will offer you much better performance than the current PC.

Yeah, in India they are much more costly than in Malayasia, U.S.A or Japan(I know since I stay here). You can buy a dual core 2.8 Ghz processor, a compatible DG31PR motherboard ,1 Gb 800Mhz DDR2 Ram for Rs 10000 (approximately) which is approximately equal to $220. I think it's the lowest configuration of computers available now....
