    Hi,

    My motherboard's north bridge has cooked. It gets super-hot whenever I
    try to boot up the computer and the computer itself will not boot up
    anymore. I took it to a computer shop and they confirmed that the
    board is toast. They also said that chances are the CPU and memory is
    done as well. I asked them to test both to see whether or not they
    were still good and they said not to even bother. The computer is only
    2-3 years old and it has a P4 2.0 GHz processor with 2 Gigs DDR400
    RAM. I've got an ASUS P4P800 SE motherboard currently and am looking
    at buying another one on eBay. What are the chances that my CPU and
    memory survived the heat coming off the north bridge? It's a fine
    machine and only a couple years old, so I'm just looking for some
    opinions from people who are more experienced than me with dealing
    with this sort of thing. Thanks in advance.
