Re: need to replace motherboard on hp dv5163d
HP.com has complete remove/replace procedures with pictures in their free manuals downloads that would be better for you than me just writing. Do go slow and keep track of all of the screws as they vary in length and remove all modules first. If you need further assistance once you have the manual to follow then please repost.Good luck, Steve

You can not know the motherboard serial number it-self without opening the computer... But you have your product ID and computer serial number on the back of the laptop. That should give you, at the HP Support web-page, the drivers list for your specific built. Knowing the driver, you can know what chip-set it's holding, and so, the motherboard also.
if you have forgotten your Bios password, open the laptop to view the motherboard. look carefully on the motherboard, you will found a jumper setting for password. remove the jumper from the two little pins. you have disable your password and can now access your Bios
Have you tried "Delete" to enter the "Bios Settings"? If not this must be the shortcut for your laptop, since most compaqs' Bios settings are accessed with "del" key. Actually for Hp compaq laptops, F1, F2, F10 and Delete keys are the shortcuts. (varies with series/models).
If this doesn't help, try Fn+F1, Fn+F2, Fn+F10 etc..
You can try to do the repair yourself, by purchasing the motherboard online at lets say...Ebay, you can pick one up for a DV6000 depending on the model for under 160 bucks. I can give you a link below to the service and repair manual as well as a link to an illustrated guide with color photos of the disassembly. I offer the same service as do other repair establishments. You ship in the laptop with your AC adapter, we replace the motherboard and ship it back. My labor charge for instance is 100 bucks plus the part. I am unsure what others charge, you might want to shop around and research the local PC shops. See if you can find one to just do the labor and you supply the part, just realize there will probably be no warranty with that arrangement.
Motherboards vary greatly, open the access door to the memory, there will be a skinny tag located inside the compartment, there will be a number like 443775-001, this is the part number you will need to find a new motherboard. Below are the links.
You might find a "used" one via eBay, but will it work?
Instead, access http://support.hp.com and get a genuine HP replacement part, and then find an HP-authorized technician to disassemble your laptop, remove the motherboard, install the replacement, and "test" the computer.
Hi I suggest you go to the HP site at the link below and select your particular version and then seek out the manual for it. But system boards are very expensive and tricky to replace. if you are not experienced in laptop repairs then forget it. It's really not worth the effort of replacing the system board unless you can get a good used one. Just buy another laptop and get your data transferred. Go for a used Dell D610. Excellent machines, about 4 years old now but I sell loads and NEVER had a problem. Good build quality, unlike most of todays laptops
I think I have the same laptop that also needs a motherboard. The Presario F600 also had a m/n of F572US found on the label with serial. Looking on the Compaq site I found the motherboard is the same as for the F500 notebooks which is 442875-001. Link is at: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01095493.pdf This number is also found under the memory chips on most Compaq/Hp Laptops. Simply open memory cover and remove the memory chips and there you will find the Motherboard replacement number. Good Luck!
