I have been a volunteer on this site since 2001, I have since completed my BS in computer science (with a minor in math and physics), I also run my own business fixing computers and tutoring people.
I have built my own computer, I manage about 5 web sites (all mine), I have taken many computer classes at school (including Visual Basic programming basic and advanced), and I subscribe to PC Gamer and read their reviews about new games and hardware.

you can try replacing the mosfet, however I think there might be more wrong with it than just a bad chip. Usually when motherboards fail its due to a much bigger problem (lots of capacitors, bad components
correct, be aware that if its a name-brand computer (like HP or Dell) the new motherboard might not fit. There are plenty of cheap cases on the market (I go to newegg.com and look through their cases first)
