    I've had a Shuttle SK22G2 since about 2007 & been running ubuntu/kubuntu on it.

    Around the time I installed 9.10, I noticed that my keyboard/mouse would suddenly stop working. I think it's the USB controller going out.

    The SK22G2 isn't made anymore, is there any replacement board that will fit this case, that I can swap the components with?

    Size-wise, most of mini-itx mobo should fit into the case. ( check newegg for selection)
    Position-wise, it is hard to determine if the CPU heatpipe HSF will position at exact location.

    Thanks for the suggestion TimeKeeper, I will do some research over the weekend and figure out which ones are a fit for the case. Hopefully this will not be TOO expensive of an endeavour!

    i think shuttle will sell you a replacement on some models. but from what i recall they are pretty expensive.

    The mounting points for the motherboard are different from any real standard, although the case is physically large enough for a Mini-ITX motherboard.

    Any motherboard from Shuttle's *G2 series should fit the case. For Socket AM2, you could probably use the motherboard from the SA76G2 or SN68SG2.

    Shuttle doesn't generally like to sell their proprietary-form-factor motherboards without a case, although they sometimes have refurbs on their official eBay store (and other eBay sellers have used boards).
