    Get a new computer.

    Sheppard: Yeah, well I try not to let them tell me what I can and can't do.
    Neera: You do not fear them?
    Sheppard: The wraith, nah. Now clowns that's another story. They scare the crap out of me.

    might be cheaper to just get a new motherboard.

    you will need to determine the cpu type and socket spec, what type of memory you have, etc.

    there are lots of info on how to swap out a motherboard, so that might be your cheapest option.
