let me guess... capacitors on the motherboard went 'poof'?

Those can be replaced, and the mobo put back in decent shape again.

I know, because I just did that a couple of months ago on this one.
Fixed it right up.

AMD 2200+, 1.8GHz cpu w/756meg of RAM.

To answer the RAM question, this mobo has *3* ram slots.  Can run on
one, two or three stick(s) of 128, 256, 512 or 1Gb of PC133 Ram.

Pretty sure it's an Abit motherboard.  I don't remember.
