Celeron666. New mobo..where from?

  shortcircuit 19:46 10 Jul 2003

Hi. A friend has tasked me to fix his compy.It died during an eleci storm(power surge).It will start but no info on screen, no beeps nothing. Ive got a feeling the mobos cooked. It has a celery 666 onboard but I dont know what the seat is . Is it a PPGA or something?

Where can I get a fair mobo from to fit it?

Has anyone got any ideas what could be the problem?

Thanks all

A Celeron 666. That must be at least four years old isn't it? Even if it is not fried it is not worth searching out a motherboard for it. If your friend is short of cash look for something on eBay for £100. I'm sure you could get something better than a Celeron for that much.

You can go to click here and ID the chip using the utility there but to be honest, you may be better off replacing the lot.

Update on celly. Its a 633Mhz not a 666!! Yep. It must be at least 4 years old made by IBM.For what he wants it for, a new board would be cheapest offer, but as you say, Ive seen durons and mobos for less than £50.Might have to go that way.
