His problem isn't exactly the same as yours but the method is pretty much the same.
Since that motherboard has more than one name it probably was used in different systems. In that case, if you do decide to get another motherboard and if your present board has a branded bios--that is it comes from a Dell, emachine, HP, Compaq, etc. and had their logo when you started it up--then you need to replace it with that same branded board, unless you plan on reinstalling your OS. For example if it was an HP board and you replace it with an emachine, XP will give you the infamous blue screen because it detects the hardware change.
Note that a bad power supply often ruins the motherboard as well so it it turns out the motherboard is bad you might want to go ahead and replace its original power supply as well.
