    No thanks, I am looking more for athlon boards that are made by soyo,asus etc instead of Gateway,compaq etc.

    Thanks anyway,

    I take it you replace the caps and get the mobo running again?
    If i had any with blown caps i would prolly ship them to you.

    I do have a mobo with a cap that was wrecked by someone.
    I have ordered a cap for it and plan on replacing it.
    Its only a ECS 810LMR, socket a for athlon xp up to around 2000 or so but caps are cheap!!

    Have a KT7A with caps that are leaking. What will you give me for it? Abit will repair it for $25 or so. It an early revision that does not officially support an XP CPU.

    NORK, Yes I just got finished replacing the caps on one of my motherboards and I am wanting to build a couple more systems so I thought I would try to get some motherboards that I could fix.

    JAD, I will give you $15.00 plus shipping for the motherboard.

    Gary Headlee in Utha repairs mainboards and does a darn excellent job.

    He's been doing this for quite a while.

    madfish, that is too much money to repair one of these boards IMO. I replaced mine with a K7S5A pro for cheaper than that.




    Christopher, YGPM. Sorry it took so long. Been debating whether I really wanted to get rid of it.
