I have an Asus P5N73-AM Motherboard with a P4-HT 2.93 Ghz processor in it. Its been working quite fantastic up until now. It also has some extra capacitors or something that help keep the motherboard safe in power fluctuations etc.

Few days ago I had my 500 GB SATA HDD crashed in it. Actually the spped of R/W on HDD would go so slow that would reach 2.5 MB/s read speed and 1.5 MB/s write speed sometimes and without even being on for 1 hour. It was new so I sent it for replacement and received a certified repaired HDD. The problem remained with new HDD, I had a full version of HD Tune Pro installed that time to monitor my R/W speeds and same happened with new replacement HDD. I gave it in again for replacement and while waiting to receive another drive I installed an old 40 GB PATA drive in my system. After going good for a few days like 4-5 days it also started getting slow and R/W speed would come to crawl like previous ones. I figured it was either PSU or Motherboard itself. One day I was playing a really low-end game No one lives forever-2 and it literally started crawling and system finally got shut-off by itself and never turned on again.

I checked HDD was working fine on other system, processor was fine, I sent motherboard to be checked and repaired and found that mobo was gone and the guy couldnt get it repaired. I really have doubt on his skills and I know that he can't do much about it I have to get my mobo sent to certified servicemen.

But still I wanna know is there anything I can do for it? Has anyone any experience with it?
