MS-6701 made by MSI for Medion, also used in the: Titanium MD8000, Titanium MD8008, MD1110, MD1294, MD1453, MD1467, MD1511, MD1621, (MD1915?), Power Pro 2660
These boards suffer from bad capacitors and sometimes bad soldering of the small transistor Q5 near the power socket (close to the mounting hole).

You need a microATX socket478 board based on a SiS648 chipset if you want a 100% compatible board. ... ECS/L4S8M/ is one.

Maybe, just maybe it is time to replace it with something more recent including the CPU and memory too...

Do not assume anything
