The mainboard or motherboard is the main PCB in the laptop. It is the most difficult component to replace because you must completely disassemble the laptop to remove it and properly install the new one. Take the battery out, ground yourself and discharge the laptop by pressing the power button for a few seconds. Most laptops start dissassembling by removing the power button/led panel above the keyboard, and then removing the keyboard, de-attaching the LCD screen assembly. And then flipping it over and removing screws on the bottom, then the laptop will split in two peices, the top part of the chassis and then the bottom half which is where the motherboard will be attached. If you decide to continue organize your screws, label them or take pictures to help you get it back together. Hope this helps you get started.

Can you replace a video drive on my laptop


I assume you mean video card instead of video drive. The nvidia GPU ( Graphics Processing Unit ) is built into your m/board. The only way to upgrade from say 256mb to 512mb is a m/board replacement. If you have a GPU failure ie failed graphics out put forstly test to see if the output to external monitor works - do that by pluging and external monitor into the vga port located on the l/h side up near the power on button - if there is no putput or it has coloured vertical lines your graphics chip is failing. the only rectification is m/board replacement.
Hp has just recently trashed a huge number of defective m/boards in the pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 & presario v3000 v6000 range and had them remanufactured to correct this GPU failure

have a look on the web for the "X1000 Maintenance and Service Guide", which contains full disassembly instructions. All you need is a cross-head screw driver and a bit of patience. The Graphics Card (an ATI Mobility Radeon 9200) has a couple of screws and then just plugs into the motherboard - no soldering required! You can usually find these cards at reasonable prices at a well known auction site.
