More information is needed.
What kind of PC do you have, Dell, HP? give brand and model.
OR, home built? list the parts by brand and model.

Please tell us why you have decided the Mobo is fried?

Note the topic title:

The only info really needed is what model of the Pavilion you have. Then iammykyl can find the original motherboard and replacement for your system. :thumbsup:

we followed the troublestrooting from the hp website and the test determined that the motherboard was fried. the power would not come on and the green light was blinking. the aluminum piece right below the fan
was clogged with dirt and it got overheated we think it fried the motherboard.

Did the trouble shooter include a thorough clean of the inside of the case, including removing the RAM and any add on card then blowing out the slots, then re seating them, checking that all wires are attached?
Before working on the PC Did you take anti static measures by briefly touching a bare part of the case?

Can you give a link to your PC web page?

we followed the troubleshooting from the user manual. we followed their instructions by unplugging different components until the green light on the back was solid and it stayed solid with the motherboard unplugged.

Hi.

Looks like the PSU is OK and the Mobo could be fried or RAM, or CPU.
This is the only replacement Mobo I was able to find, > used, http://www.ecrater.c...erboard-hp-napa.
If you did buy it, rebuild the system, it may still end up dead.
My advise is to find a reputable repairer, ask how much they would charge to diagnose the problem and then decide if it is worth spending the $s.

Sorry that I have not been of more help to you.

Possible another member has a better solution?
