I've searched google for over an hour now and can't find anything useful about the Dell motherboard E210882 rev.A00 LGA 775. Some sites claim it has to be replaced with the same part, due to the fact that Dell supposedly uses custom mobos. The problem there is, Dell doesn't even offer them on their website. I can't even find anything that lists the specs of the board, so I can try to match one up. If anyone can pop a link with info about the mobo, and/or somewhere I can find a replacement (preferably not ebay), whether it be a Dell board or anything compatible, I'd greatly appreciate it. It's pretty urgent, so it's worth 500 points to me.

Thanks

Doesn't look like that board matches up. It doesnt say anything about 8400 compatibility, just 8250.

I used the motherboard number since the first post did not mention the model number

I always ordered Dell parts by phone. Found it much easier.

Heres a few from ebay http://computers.search.ebay.com/dell-8400_Motherboards-for-Desktop-PC_W0QQcatrefZC12QQfromZR40QQfsooZ1QQfsopZ1QQsacatZ4613. Look for the part# on the motherboard to match it up but usually if they are from the same system they are interchangable.

Well the particular board I'm looking for, Dell just doesnt make anymore. What I did realize though, is on their website you can enter the product code on the back of your product, and they will list full system specs. I used that info to pick out a board that should work just fine. My only gripe is that Dell doesnt list the memory speed for it's motherboards, and it's nowhere on the actual ram, so I had to buy new ram just to ensure it would be compatible with the new board. Points go to simpswr, because even though I didnt buy the board he posted above, it would have worked fine. It was just a matter of the website it was on not having overnight shipping, and I needed this thing ASAP.

Thanks to everyone who responded.
