what other components are in your system ?

also how do you know its the mobo

check your CPU type (athlon, duron, AThlon XP etc.)
Then make a list of the things you want/need on the board. Video, sound, network, usb2 etc. and check out the manufacturers. I would suggest ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI are all good makes. Make sure your existing memory is supported and that the IDE is the speed you want.
If you don't know the spec of the board you already have then check out the leadtek website to confirm.
Any good socket A board should take your CPU but always make sure before you buy.

every thing else in the system has been changed except the mobo, changed or renewed, i have at the mo a 128 graphics and usb2 card and soundcard, and 512 memory ddr.
The initial problem was no bios beep....thanx
