Can I fix a dead motherboard?
The DFI LanParty DK 790FX-B M2RSH motherboard of my computer stopped working overnight. It turns on, but the promt stops at error 88, which means, according to its manual, a corrupted CMOS data or a defective motherboard ("NB chip may be defective". I guess it refers to the northbridge chip).
So, I loaded the default values stored in the ROM BIOS as the manual explains (moving the jumper), but I get the same error. Then, I brought it to technical service and the technician said me, after a couple of days, that motherdboard is dead (I guess he tried out every part) and I need a new one (mine has "only" three years). So, here is the question: ¿can I fix a dead motherboard? ¿Recover the ROM BIOS in some way? ¿Or the best I can do is send it to recycle?
Is this a good question?
