Re: HP motherboard replacement
Not at all. I don't know exactly what laptops use, but I'm qute sure they are not the same. AMD's around 1GHz used the socket A for desktops, and Intel was 423...I think. It's different, a much smaller chip over all. Not only are pins different, but there are different chipsets for different brands, they run at different speeds, and some use different RAM...
Well, if I were you, I'd check your PS first. A multimeter should do fine. Make sure it's putting out the correct voltages, if any at all. Then work from that...
Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...
