[help / sanity check] is my motherboard broken?

Hi. Recently my computer started hanging for no aparent reason. Everything just freezes, when I restart there are all those messages after a kernel crash. I tried switching kernels, I've tested the RAM (it's ok), but no effect. After restart sometimes I get the message about undetected keyboard, although it works. It also complains about bios settings lost but it can be just the battery dead. I assume my mb is dying - am I rite? or are there any other possible reasons, and what could I diagnose?

Hi, you can try to boot from a live-cd and see if your computer gets the same messages or it boots normally (just to discard operating system pproblems).

Try a different kernel. It doesn't sound like a hardware problem for me, especially if you're having panics.

This reminds me of one of those situations from the 80s when hardware was expensive and hard to find,
and many said, "Please let it be something I did! And not the hardware."

I don't care what it is, what I care is knowing what it is.
