my motherboard went pop last week and I want a replacement. A replacement Dell unit is £120 can I just fit any motherboard in a Dell machine or are there machines built non standard?

I know Dell use a lot of non standard parts in there PC's such as the power supply but I'm not sure if the motherboard is one of them.

Even if you manage to replace it you may find that your restore disc suppied by Dell won't install as it's not a Dell motherboard so you may have to budget for an OEM version of windows.
