no and no. the CPU or Processor is not included in a motherboard. if your buying a completely different board from the one you have you may need to expend a few hundred more to buy a new processor to match. also you may have to buy new RAM depending on the new board vs the old board. also you need to match up the PIN number of the board to processor. if its a 966 pin you need a 966 pin processor to match. and RAM DDR1,2,3 to same.
you do not need to buy a new hard drive as long as you dont need a new one. but when you replace a motherboard windows will demand you re enter your activation key before it will open right back up to you. so make sure you have it handy.
Hi I presume you checked the DC power supply. Don't use a generic power supply on this model, because that will cause alot of different symptoms. I use the exact same model on service calls. A further way to test the mother board is to remove the CPU and memory. Carefully provide power and look for lights. If none, my next step would be to refloat the video chip. This requires special equipment. A replacement mother board without processor on eBay is $49.00 so it might be time to consider that. Good luck
Ebay is your best bet...however since I don't know model of computer you have, I can't help you much further. If you give me the model number, I can cross reference and find a compatible processor for you.
not always the mother board will have a limit on how fast a processor it can handle and whether or not it can handle a dual core. my advice is to go and download siw (system information for windows). this will give you a lot more info about your laptop. it will tell you what *********** board supports and lots more. i would say that if your computer is currently a single core than don't upgrade to a dual core because it probably won't be supported. then once you get the info go check out newegg.com it will save you lots of money verses going to a retal store.
No, the maximum you can get for this laptop is a 1GB chip. When buying it, make sure its DDR2 SODIMM PC4300. The ram below the yellow box is what's compatible (its about $25 for a 1gb chip anywhere you look)
