The unit failed as my son left for Iraq and he ask me to rebuild it so his daughter here in the states could be in contact with him. It has failed to boot just before he left and I did not see exactly what happened. He requested that I rebuild it. I worked as a field tech in research and development for TI for about 30 years mostly in adverse enviroments overseas soI build my own desk tops here so I know the only two things I need to repair the unit is a manual andthe setup support disk. Can you help me? My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org --tel US 254-822-1476 address Robert Coate , 835 Bays Road, Axtell, TX 76624-1158 and my FAX is 1-208-730-5088. I WOULD CERTAINLY APPRECIATE YOUR ASSISTANCE IN OBTAINING THE ABOVE LISTED MATERIAL SO I MAY PROCEED WITH THE REBUILD OF THIS UNIT....I KNOW A LITTLE SEVEN YEAR OLD WHO WOULD CERTAINLY APPRECIATE IT.

Re: Rebuild existing desk top
The only thing I can tell you is go to the website of the maker of the mother board. Then try to find that model and number. If all else fails send an email to the maker of the board, that may be a good thing to do anyway.
Then download the materials you need.
Also searching the internet may give you some help as well. Take care,

open it up and the mother board manufacturer will be printed on the board
any mother board can be used as a replacement and if it needs replacing update it so that a later chip can be used
it is cheaper to replace the mother board , power supply , memory, chip than to buy a new computer
and hard drives are now solid state and do not have any spinning bits to fail
talk with a computer repair shop and get ideas as to how to proceed
you will probably find that with a rebuild you will save at least 25% off the price of a new store model pc and get a better unit to boot
When you are booting your machine, notice the prompt to press keys to get into your RAID controller. Press them and get in. You have to tell it that you want to use that new drive to rebuild your array. You really wouldn't want it any other way. Then when you boot windows it will be able to rebuild it and the message should become one of happiness, given adequate time to rebuild.
The Motherboard will require different drivers, to operate correctly, Windows will be trying to load the incorrect drivers and fail as it can't find the corresponding Hardware.
you may be able to get into safe mode, delete almost everything in the Device manager tree, reboot and let it detect everything.
still you may have problems getting in.
also there is copy protection software in Windows which should detect the major hardware change and ask you to activate again.
If this fails you may have to try a Win XP repair (not using recovery console) which should rebuild windows, detect all your hardware, whilst not loosing all your data (although you may have to re-install some of your applications (as they may become dis-associated with the Registry.)
