PC Issues
If there is anyone here in Austin who knows their way around the inner guts of a computer, please contact me either in the comments here or at cashew@macrophile.com.

I have the sinking sensation I need to replace my motherboard, and I honestly don't know the first thing about doing such a thing.

Help! and thanks in advance.

How are you certain it's the MB?

When I turn the PC on, it hangs at the BIOS screen and emits two beeps. More often than not, it won't go any further. After resetting it several times, it may eventually boot up, but it's a crap shoot.

All the research I have done tells me it is the motherboard--if I first check to make sure it isn't the memory. Well, last Saturday, I replaced the memory, so I now know it isn't that.

Happy to take a look if you need. :) I'll namedrop Goodwill computers as a great source for cheap replacement parts for older systems, too!
