Ahh yes, q3map2 is the compiler. Another good thing to use is the [COLOR=blue]Q3map2 GUI[/COLOR], since it makes setting the compile options much easier! Always make sure to back your maps up in triplicate, ad on CD / DVDs as well, thats what i do! Im sorry to hear you lost all your maps, although i dont understand why a motherboard failure would case that, since the hard drive should still be fine :S But then again im not that great with the technical side of computers so i cant really say!

Same.

If the motherboard is the only problem with your computer and you have a little cash saved up, you can probably find one on eBay for a really good price.

Many computer repair companies enjoy formatting people's hard-drives as a first attempt to solve any problem. I'll just throw that out there.

But yeah... under normal circumstances: motherboard issues != hard drive data-loss.

I've heard that one before. Psh...I don't trust repair shops at all. A local shop wanted $700 to replace my laptop's motherboard.

Turns out that buying/replacing the motherboard (twice!) with help from a friend was actually cheaper than one repair from the shop. I'm so proud of the computer industry. :p
