After ruling out everything from viruses to a messed-up video card, I've read somewhere that a motherboard failure tends to cause incorrect displays of the failure of other hardware.
My question here is what the hell am i looking for? I've never actually replaced a motherboard, nor do i give the motherboard a thought(till now). I believe the processor/cpu needs to match the slot of the motherboard(most important aspect?), but is there anything else i should look out for? Perhaps advice on picking a brand, one that won't lead to melting in a few months or violent nuclear explosions upon turning on the pc.
I'd appreciate the help(and maybe some tips to look out for, maybe on how i reconnect those jumble of wires )
