Default Fried Mobo

Allright, I did a TF search and I pretty much determined that my motherboard is fried, probably from my crappy installation (it was a horrible motherboard, so i am kind of glad it's dead )

What are the chances that the other hardware is fried? (memory, processor, etc.)

what is the system. could be old enough to replace all the components anyway. probably a fairly low chance because generally what causes the damage to the m/b prevents any electrical surges and so forth from effecting anything else connected. or thats in my experience

my mobo fried. It took my AGP card with it but thats it. Its difficult to say with computer component failures. Sometimes it takes everything - RAM, MOBO, CPU, GPU but other times only 1 component fails. You will need to borrow a replacement to test your other components.
