Dear CPU Scorekeeper

My CPU had the misfortune of being struck by lightning.

The only damage that occurred (thanks to a surge protector) was the charge entered via the modem (which got fried). After I replaced the modem, I discovered that the motherboard took a hit also and won't allow the new modem to work. After causing the modem to dial my ISP, the system shuts down (restarts) and begins "scandisk".

I would like to find a replacement for my HP Pavilion model 3260 motherboard. Going to "hp-at-home.com" is no help whatsoever.

I need to find a replacement motherboard that will fit my 3260 case.

Not wanting to treat your misfortune too lightly, but I would take your lightning strike as a sign from above that it is time for a new computer.

As noted in our previous article, the HP Pavilion 3260 shipped with a Pentium-200MMX CPU and has limited motherboard upgrade options due to its slimmed-down desktop case. It's time to rescue its hard drive and pop it into a new system that will better accommodate the speed requirements of today's internet multimedia, games, and peripherals, not to mention provide AGP video capability.

To assist you in determining just what will provide the best bang for your budget, consult our Top CPU performance list. Then, browse our Price Comparison lists and the CPU Scorecard Store to see if we might have just what you need.
