Sorry to say but Compaq/HP uses proprietary motherboards which means without doing modifications to your case you will have to buy a board specific for your system from Compaq. Hope this helps.

Probably however if you upgrade the motherboard you will have to upgrade the CPU, and the memory, possibly the hard drive if the old board is IDE and the new is sata. Also you would have to upgrade the power supply if it's so old it may not have sata power connectors.

From: weinleinm@gmail.com I was given a COMPAQ PRESARIO some years ago and I would like to upgrade motherboard, trade in or donate it. Can the motherboard be upgrade for more speed and WI_FI...


Laptops are the toughest to boost performance wise. More memory, bigger hard drive are common fixes. Scour HPs website for your specific model & maybe serial # will fine tune its parts list. Then go to HP's webstore for new part pricing. Get HP's part number for the CD or DVD if they made one for your motherboard, case & plugin arrangement.. or, replace the CD drive if you want to & then go to your favorite Electronics store & buy an external DVD Burner for $50. The only way to add software to the new NetBooks. -DellTech1

Need new vid card


The Compaq s3200nx comes with integrated video; Via KM266 graphics. It has:
Available slotsTwo PCI
AGP4x 1.5v
AGP is for Video but nothing else and it must be 4v. PCI is for all types of cards including Video.

You can get a PCI Video card with more memory on it than your current video.
You must verify your monitor connection. Is it VGA? or DVI? Make sure the card has the right type of connection.

Ugrading to a newer system with higher performance specifications


You can upgrade you memory to 2 x 512MB DDR PC2700 333MHz, and install pretty much any size 2.5" IDE hard drive you wish. Installing Vista will make this machine very very slow. Windows 7 would be better as it uses less resources. Ideally XP Pro would be better suited based on this boards specifications.
