In general, no. The motherboard is the "central nervous system" for your computer and does not store any data. Your hard drive is the "brain" that houses all of your files. In the event of a power surge, such as during a storm or power problem in your building, the computer could be compromised and the power supply along with motherboard get "fried". Other components such as the hard drive or CPU could also be damaged. Be sure to schedule an appointment with us immediately following a power problem in your building. We have data recovery specialists who can get recover your data before it's too late.
