    HI all,

    about a year ago I built a computer for my son using the combo
    processor/ motherboard from biostar. the M7VIG-400 in came with an
    antholon XP mobile 2600+ processor.

    a few months ago I had some problems with the motherboard, the
    computer runs, but the pci sockets don't work so my son does not have
    sound. I never could get the onboard sound to work.

    anyway, I want to get a new motherboard, but would like to use the
    same processor, and ram memory I already have. ( (2) 512 mb 184 pin
    sdram ddr 133)

    I don't see the M7vig currently still being sold, so I wanted to get
    one as close as possible to just swap out what I have into the new
    motherboard.

    any help would be appreciated.

    First, I'd check the settings in your BIOS setup.
    If all is ok in settings and it really IS bad, then contact
    www.newegg.com or
    www.motherboards.com,
    www.pricewatch.com etc
    and look for MICROATX motherboards - that's the "type " that you have now.
    So the holes in your case etc will match up.
    Better yet - call them - tell them exactly what you have and have them
    quote prices/options.
