i find most computer electronics have a half life of about 5 years.   
after 5 years, they get increasingly flakey.   your motherboard is a 10 
year old system, hence my 'borrowed time for 5 years' statement.

the 865G chipset on that motherboard was new in 2003, and the Pentium-4 
"northwood" CPU (I think thats what you have) were obsoleted by 2004 
(processors started coming in socket 775 rather than 478 circa summer 

that D865GBF motherboard was new in April 2003, and the final 
specification update was November 2004, although they probably did sell 
it for another year or so before it was withdrawn.   It was taken off 
support in 2007, so if you got it 7 years ago (2006?), it was already 
nearing its end-of-support-life.
