8k9a2: Is it dying? :(

My 8K9A2 will not boot past the memory check in POST. Usually it doesnt start the counter showing the memory amount, sometimes tho it stops at a seemingly random number, 84800k for example.

I have tried memory from another machine, and tested my memory in another machine, but my 8K9A2 will still not boot and other machines have no problem with my RAM.

I have also reset the CMOS, but this didnt help.

So.... am I in the market for a new motherboard or could it be something else?

Thanks for reading

Check the capacitors around your DIMM sockets, and see if any of them have bulging tops or brown or black goo around the bottom of them.
