Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
How do you conect the motherboard to the case?
Most cases have holes in the case where the motherboard mounts. The old one may have some that will unscrew from the case to put in the new one. You will have to line the mounts up with the holes in the motherboard for the screws to go into. Some new cases come with the mounts already installed and some don't. Most motherboards are screwed in with 4-8 screws. Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa.
