Default Micro ATX in an ATX case?

Well my friends insignia computerhttp://www4.dealtime.com/xPF-Desktop...r-2-8GHz-D300a is getting the thermal event error so I told him he needs to replace the motherboard, he doesn't know much about PC's so I told him I'd pick one out and install it for him.

NVM, I need help on finding a motherboard, he has a Pentium 4 Socket 478, I'm guessing, cpu with 512MB DDR-266 PC2100 memory, ATA100 HD and I think thats all.

if that option is available in the bios.

And if you need a new mobo I can highly recommend this
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...25&modelmenu=1
I've used that for about 1 or 1 years and haven't had any problems. It also has pretty good features, especially the pci-e is a great addition if you ever want to upgrade the vid card. Only bad things are that it only has 1 ide connector and 2 ram slots.

You can't buy that from that site though, I've looked everywhere for one. I'll tell him about disabling temp monitoring.

yeah, it might be hard to find since it's pretty old.
ebay has one
http://cgi.ebay.com/ASUS-P4GPL-X-Soc...QQcmdZViewItem
though then again that it pretty expensive, kind of hard to say how much you should be paying but I think I payed around 60e for a new one. And that was about 1 years ago.
