I recently had to have the Motherboard on my three year old Dell Optiplex GX280 (small form factor machine)running XP Pro, replaced. Fortunately, my machine was still covered by Dell's on-site service. The Technician replaced the motherboard and had the machine up and working all in under an hour. He never had to re-install the OS. It was a relatively painless and fast process.
