As noted I am looking for a cheap socket 939 to take the above CPU.  AGP or PCIe not important but would prefer DDR not DDR2 RAM. Having a rear panel for the IO connectors would be desirable.

ATA or ATA/SATA would be okay also (I have both kinds of drives)

Thanks

Was looking for one myself about 18 months ago, all I can say is good luck. They seem to be extremely rare and expensive 2nd hand. :(
You could try on gpforums, lot of older stuff appears on there time to time.

I looked at this.  There is one retail option but it's mega expensive, especially if you can't tell for sure if it is the M/B that's the problem.  In then end I got a retail upgrade pack (M/B, CPU, Mammory etc) out of pconline for less than a new, but old school motherboard.  So much for 'future proofing!' etc.

Well this is the situation. The MB (Gigabyte something) boots up okay but doesn't recognise any keyboard (USB or PS2). I cleared the CMOS, replaced the battery and now it comes up saying CMOS Checksum error, press F1 to continue or Del to enter Setup. But with no keyboard that's challening. So possibly (but strange) that the PS2 controller has gone out and the BIOS is set not to recognise legacy USB support.

I think the CPU is fine so the last thing I will do before ditching this is to remove the battery and disconnect from the AC for a day and see if it resets things.

Most BIOS that Ive come across do tend to turn off legacy USB support by default, which is a stupid idea IMHO :(

Is the BIOS chip SMT or socketed ? If socketed and can find similar board (dead or alive), could try swapping the BIOS chip and see what happens...

Otherwise the old remove battery and pull the power for 15mins+ method is only way to go...

I fear my 939 board is slowly on its way out also....

I have a Foxconn NF4SK8AA board sitting here with a dual core 3800+ and 2x1gb DDR400, trade in on new hardware, was running fine before removal but have somehow misplaced the rear I/O shield.
Offers on board or the lot. DOA warranty only, not expecting top dollar.

+1, get a whole new RAM/mobo/chip combo.

I paid less than a replacement board for a pack of similar specs to what lokeynz's offering. (same chip, ram, diff board) it's now in my HTPC project.
