Question about EliteGroup P6IWP-Fe Motherboard

1 Answer

Suitable replacement motherboard

I need to replace the mobo on my machine.
It has an Elitegroup P6IWP-FE Socket 370 with either i810 or i810e, can't remember if it was the e chipset or not.

I don't want to reinstall windows, so I was hoping to run the gambit and try to let windows redetect a new mobo and hope it takes it.
Problem is, I've been having a hard time to find a replacement for that particular motherboard that would do the trick.

Any suggestions on a course of action?

It's a much needed machine, and to start from scratch would be a very difficult thing to do at this point.
I also know that my other option is to slave the HD and salvage everything on it, on a new system as a sort of compromise.

    It may yet be a CPU problem, as it seems that the board is recieving power, but will not power on, otherwise could be a PSU problem as well.

    I've eliminated all but the Mobo and CPU+Fan, though, the original wattage of the PSU may no longer be sufficient in delivering enough power, odd as that may be, which is another possibility.

    Thanks for the offer of help though.

    Did I also mention that this old work machine is using the 'horrid' Millenium Edition.
    For some reason it just seemed to have worked well, so we kept it on.
    Taking it to a shop I know of to get a better diagnosis, since I don't have any spares to check those parts for fault.

Okay, the problem here is that there is no guarantees when hottswaping motherboards. First It helps if the mboard your swap to is of the same manufacturer thus this eliminates some driver identification problems with XP. Second the socket set (as you said PGA370) must be the same. Then VGA setup must be the similar as in, if its onboard on the first mboard it must be onboard for the second mboard. Otherwise you should be fine. Another option that you did not mention is creating a second partition on the harddrive and installing XP with any other motherboard onto that pertition you created. That way you can just simply copy you information across when you are running with your new mboard (this may be your best option) . Let me know how you go. Thanks

Is your motherboard support that kind of processor?

Do you run it with the previous installation with the old processor, which is in the harddrive? Its best for clear installed so that all settings are configured to your new setup. Your new setup remembers the old processor.

Sometimes setting the bios to default and reconfiguring it once again solve the problems.
