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.

    Well you need to find the motherboard manual that tells you which pins are for what and then on the new case follow the wires to what they go to or they should be marked as to what they are. Once you determine the pins on the motherboard just hook the correct wire to it. If you don't have a motherboard manual you may have to locate one for it to figure out the pin sequence. Also sometimes on the board itself at the pins it will tell you what they are. If not you will have to have the manual.

    Hope this helps, now that I understand what you are asking.

Need instructions for replacing and wiring Motherboard


Luckily that is pretty easy with modern motherboards.
1. Remove power and unplug all devices hooked to computer.
2. Open case.
3. Write down the location and orientation of all wires connecting to old motherboard.
4. Disconnect all wires from the case that are plugged into old motherboard.
5. Uncrew the screws holding the motherboard in the case.
6. Carefully remove old motherboard.
7. Install new motherboard and secure it to the case (probably using the same screws as the old MB)
8. Refer to diagram you made earlier to plug in all the wires to the proper places in the new motherboard.
9. Check and make sure the new motherboard works before closing the case.
10. If everything is working correctly, close up the case and you are done.

Is there a current motherboard that will fit in a Sony Vaio pcv-RZ22g case to replace an old Asus P4S533 motherboard?


Desktop computer cases have mountings that suit the majority of motherboards.
You most like need a new switch mode power supply as the existion one won't have the correct power connectors and won't supply enough power.

Will new micro atx boards fit inside of a hp 4550z case?


Yes i think you will be ok as i can see and your old motherboard is microatx but i strongly recommend you to change case because is not only about motherboard.You will need and better and new power supply and if you want to build a good system with air flow for not overheating your new cpu and other hardware i strongly recommend you to change and chassis!!You can find a "nice" case with $50-$70 bucks if you dont want to spend money on case,but you will need power supply for sure

Old case new motherboard


You could get it to work by hooking the wiring as you say, But you will be better off with a new case set up for the newer M-board.

A new motherboard for a old compaq presario 5240


You will need a new case and a new power supply. I would replace the memory as well.

Compaq had a tendency to make cases to only fit their boards back then. Youre better off building a new unit and starting over again.
