Want to upgrade electronics

I have a RepRapGuru Prusa i3. Last week I let my hot end get gummed up when our power failed, so I replaced it. Good news, I had an extra. Bad news, I tightened it up against the extruder gear. It clicked several times before I could hit "reset," and then the extruder wouldn't turn. I did all the troubleshooting things you do, and finally decided that the stepper drivers, RAMPS, or Arduino Mega may have blown. Since I had extras of each I decided to change them out, and verified every wire connector and connection. However, my Windows 10 computer won't recognize the new Arduino. I reverted back to the old Arduino and now the computer won't recognize it.

What are the suitable replacements for the Arduino Mega and RAMPS 1.4 that work with Windows 10?

Thank you for any assistance.
