# I have never heard of windows breaking a mother board

I haven't heard of Windows itself breaking a motherboard, but viruses 
have been known to destroy hardware. They usually burn out the CPU, 
bypassing its overheating safeguards, or they access hard drive internal 
firmware somehow. They can also gain access to other internal firmware 
on the motherboard that can lead to destruction of the chipset or other 
parts. However, this being a very new download, I doubt this is the 
problem in this case.
