Default MoBo going dead ??

I've got my epox 8k5a2+ for over a year now, always been stable. But the last week its doing some strange things.

I've always had an audigy and a realtek networkcard in the PCI slots, always in the same slots.
But now it seems like a few PCI slots won't recognize any cards.
The PCI slots which I always use for the audigy and networkcard won't work, the pc will boot but after a while it just stops, no blue screen, no fault. It just stops, only thing i can do is reset.
If I put the cards in other slots the pc works just fine, but after a week my networkcard wasn't detected anymore. So i put it in yet another slot and the pc just stops after while.

My quess is that my mobo is almost dead.... at least the PCI bridge is...

any suggestions?

if other pci cards won't work, then my mobo is dead i presume...

I've been working without the network card for almost a week and haven't seen a crash.

So MoBo isn't dead but that stupid networkcard is ****ed up, think I've burned the chip or something the last time I was OC'ing (kt333 chipset= no pci lock)
