Replacement motherboard needed for HP Pavilion p6226p

Specs: Win 7 - 64 bit, AMD Athalon II x4 620 Quad Core / 8 gigs
I am hoping one of you fine people can help me to find a replacement motherboard for my HP Pavilion p6226p.

I have gone through the whole troubleshooting routine -- all peripherals, RAM, replaced with known-good power supply & CPU, and still can not get into the BIOS setup or boot past the HP splash screen. I'm down to replacing the motherboard now!

This computer currently has:
Motherboard -- M2N78-LA (Viola) (
CPU -- AMD Athlon II x4 620 Quad Core
Graphics -- NVIDIA GeForce 9100 Integrated

I'm fine with a replacement motherboard with at least equivalent graphics, as I do occasionally game with my boyfriend (League of Legends, Magicka, running on lowest settings is fine with me). I'm in the market for a new computer, but would like to keep this one limping along for another 6 months or so if all it will cost me is a motherboard :)

I have a Frys & Microcenter nearby (located in Houston) and would like to go pick one up ASAP, so if you could point me to one on their site, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!

Before you buy the motherboard, disconnect the cmos battery for 5 mins then put it back in and turn it on, if it works you will have to set the time and date again.

Yes, I've tried removing the battery (left it out for several hours) and also used the jumper to clear it -- unfortunately still nothing :(
