If you have to replace the motherboard, why would you want to stay with a P4? The P4 is outdated & slow. When the motherboard goes bad on an old system, it usually makes more sense to replace the entire system than just replace the board.

How about posting your complete system specs so we know what type of hardware you're working with? Is your P4 a socket 423, 478 or 775?

What is the problem? The computer mechanic may be wrong. Describe what happens when you attempt to start the computer.

That means nothing.

Describe what happens when you try to start the computer.

Your problem is more likely something else. If you replace the motherboard and the same issue is still there then what?

Post the full model of the computer.

Long delay......Nothing else learned.

If you are considering replacing the motherboard and possibly the processor, be smart with your money and start from scratch and purchase or build a new system. You will be much happier for much longer, just don't go with the cheapest. Better is always better (within reason).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
