Default Possible Damage to PC?

Hello, i recently had a computer in my household go haywire and start to have random reboots, upon researching on the internet, i found out that the mobo was flaky and it was known to crap out. But i was wondering if the mobo may have damaged any parts in my PC. Is it possible? Or is there a way for me to check? As id like to know if i can salvage the other parts and purchase a new mobo, or if i have an excuse to upgrade completly

Some say windows plays a demonic message when played backwards, but thats not the worst of it, play it forward, and it installs Windows.

Well Ive salvaged lots of parts off of damaged motherboards and I've never had any problems. Usually the only way to have lots of damaged parts is by to much heat and you fry stuff or by a power surge to fry parts. You should be alright to use the parts.
