    thx yeah that help me out. really don't know what i have 32 or 64 bit but i will look at the power supply and work from that might just get a new power supply as well. as for now m/board works ok but does turn on, on its own when i turn it off after about 3 hours of being off. then kicks on and off till i unplug it and restart it and kicks off again have to do this a few times before it turns on for good or off till again it turns on on its own.wierd why does that happen? other then that it works great for now think power is going out as well.might explain the kicking on and off. thanks again Melissa.

You can put mostly any M/board in most cases the main problem will be power supply. A lot of the latest M/boards now need different power plug fittings and your power supply may not have them
(Do a careful check)
Unless you use a 64 bit operating system its useless getting that much RAM as 32 bit O/S can only use 3.35Gb of RAM

How do i go do a factory restore

You will need to get a Windows installation CD for the version of windows designed for your computer first.

Whenever I plug a thumbdrive I now get a bluescreen warning about XP shutting down to protect my computer and then the computer reboots. This happens whether I plug in either my Sandisk or PNY thumbdrives...

Usually blue screen errors are associated with hardware. Since you are experiencing problems after migrating the motherboard it has to do something with it.
Try removing the Jumpers and cables associated with the usb ports on your motherboard and refix them back. This will probably help you fix the problem (also make sure your jumper and cable configurations are correct - they can usually be found on *********** board manual)
If the problem still persists try taking the whole machine apart and refix it again.
Hopefully this will help you. Best Regards NextDoorNerd

No video displayed after updating bios

Yes, it is true and common. Anytime you update bios, also find the method for resetting/undoing the bios update.
go to the mobo mfg website and find how to reset the bios. This usually involves removing the battery, and jumpering the reset.
The reset may not reset/undo the update, but simply reset the bios to defaults.
Depending on the bios type the restore may vary.

Very slow booting

If you're going to plug-in a video card you need to turn off the onboard video chip. Otherwise It sounds like a cold problem, you could heat areas of the motherboard with a hairdryer to find out..
