Well obviously better to buy a new motherboard . and prolly cheaper .
Take the cpu out and see what cpu socket there is , then look on ebay for a motherboard with the same socket type and ram support

Well aslong as that case is atx or micro atx standard a new mobo should fit in ok

or maybe building a new one would be a better option and then selling what you have there on ebayor another way .
if yo post a budget and usage then we can advise a suitable rig to build

It probably won't be ATX. Most prebuilt computers are not.

Anyway, contact Compaq to see if you can get a replacement motherboard. If not, then you'll probably have to get a new case as well as a new motherboard.

brand new dfi socket 370 board on new egg for 60 some dollars. If thats the case I'm thinking it is (the black micro atx that says compaq evo on the front) this board will work, compaq uses a standard micro atx board and even stand front panel connectors. I wouldn't buy some piece of crap off ebay when I could get a brand new board. Linky:
