I'm confused. What exactly do you need help with? something to do with sata drivers, or do you need a new motherboard for some reason? What do you mean you need a motherboard that supports the processor that came with computer. Why on earth would the motherboard that came with your dell not support the processor that came with it.

Probably just any standard ATX motherboard would be fine. Also slightly confused here...

I dunno. Last I looked at a Dell, it was using a BTX layout. But yeah, also confused as to what he's really asking. Any chance of a spam bot? They've become really sophisticated...

Definitely not ATX standard replaceable.

You'll need to get a replacement part through Dell or another reseller. It's going to be anywhere from $250-500 to replace.
