Want to replace HP foxconn mcp73m01h1 with Asus ipibl-lb, is it compatible and will I have to reinstall windows os?

wow OS question (none stated) hard case hardware mod.
( fits, OEM COA, and HP happy questions)
Does it fit,why not try it your self., you do know ATX form factors are many right. (HP uses many, im too lazy too look up both)
so if it fits, smile. (screws and that funky back bezel for conns)
HP does not sell motherboards ever as generic or for upgrades.
Asus does in there fabulous commercial products lilne, ask.
$300 prime grade not scrap from old PCs.
I am a 100% ASUS guy.... (M5a99x,evo) 6cores, 20GB ram.

.the mobo does not know what steel case fits around it.
if it fits that ends that worry. its just a case. the fans must work sure.
you never said what OS.?? windows what, or is it linux
HP sells windows, linux,OS2,freedos and others world wide.

lets say you said w7 (a supported OS by HP and MS)
That disk by HP may not like that mobo.
why not ask HP..... most there dont know,seen that there endless.
per here, (btw,FIXYA is NOT HP,not by country miles)

what we do, as many do on such a complex matter
polices are complex. google this and endless topic ,for sure.

is use a spare, old HDD
and install to it,
if it works in a few minutes, and the HP /MS COA license
(OEM) accepted and activated at ms you are home free.
the COA sticker is on your PC< windows bla bla.

if HP is happy good(at install time, next is MS fence to climb)

if MS happy (no it wont) BUT YOU CALL THEM and tell them
on the phone, "MY MOBO smoked , please activate for the new mobo." (NO PROBLEM SIR)

I HAVE DONE THIS VAST TIMEs, not once rejected ever.

why not just use a spare say 150gb drive, parked in the dusty shelf. be self learning. test it, its harmless as a lamb.
ALL W7 or newer answers here, xp and vista are dead, zero phone calls accepted by MS.

MS trips the fail flag on major HW changes (the truth is each has a S/N)
more memory (inane for sure)
new mobo
new BIOS, see mobo
new hdd.
upgraded CPU say from 4 cores to 6>?

the MS big secret is , they have magic weighting of the list.

I think most real HP posts say, yes and no
some will work others do not;.
HP does not publish such juicy information, would love to see it.
the real HP is here, the Real DEAL.

I have a HP Proliant ML350 G6 running MS Small Bus. Server 2008. It will freeze up 3-5 times a week which holds up work loads. What might be the cause of it freezing up so often? Thanks,

HEAT, is a big factor. That is a mighty Xeon Server Quad Core CPU and when it gets to work it gives off heat.

You need to make sure that the chassis is well ventilated, install some fans to keep it cool. Clean the heatsink and surrounds of dust. Use a vacuum cleaner.
Also scan the system for Malware and Virues, these pieces of code simply get the computer to do a whole lot of nothing usefull to you. Find them and delete them. Usually a good cleaning will get it operating efficiently and effectively, giving you a responsive and productive computer system.

Take care!

My HP Pavilion turned off the other day and now won't stay on. It starts going through the boot up and then turns off before it gets to MS Welcome screen.

It could be overheating. If you are comfortable with opening up the case do this. Unplug the computer and place the it where you can work around it. Remove the knurled screw from the back of the left side panel. It's the one with the grill holes. Using canned compressed air blow the dust off of the cpu fan, back case fan, and the grill holes. Also blow out the power supply vent holes inside and the fan on the back. Hold the fans blades from spinning to prevent ruining the bearings. It could be a bad memery stick. Remove any cards and the memory sticks. Reinstall one stick, hookup the keyboard and display cable and power on the computer. If still nothing swap the ram sticks.

When running video or playing games fan seems to run loud the whole computer shuts off

That means the heat sink processor is clogged and needs to be cleaned. When the computer can't cool down the processor, it detects overheating and shutdowns to protect the processor.

The back of the computer needs to be removed and the heat sink needs to be cleaned. I do not recommend you to do it if you have no previous experience cleaning computers.

I have an HP pavilian dv7 laptop and i keep hearing a rattling noise -possible screw in fan or broken fan because it overheats and rattles when i move the computer, i cant figure out how to open the back...


I couldn't find a disassembly guide for the DV7 but I did find one for a DV9.

This might help give you an idea on what needs to be done. Essentially there's a few components you need to remove first before you can undo the main case screws to pull apart the case.

Also worth mentioning is the fact that you'll likely have to go in through the top as opposed to looking at the fan from the back. This means taking out the keyboard etc.

Hpoe this helps

I have an HP touchsmart IQ790uk, error message: cpu fan failed

The fan is attached to the heat-sink and can be removed/unscrewed off the heatsink. Take the fan to the computer or elecronics hobby shop for a replacement fan.
The are after-market CPU heat-sink fan assemblies available (these usually provide better cooling than the original units), just remove the existing assembly and take it to your friendly computer shop for a suitable replacement.

Ned to replace cpu fan.

I think that particular model has the fan mounted in the back of the case just below the power supply. It has a duct that goes from the fan to the processsor. Remove case cover and remove the duct by pressing the 2 tabs on the top of the duct and rolling it back and out. Unplug the fan cable from the mainboard . Make sure you remember the connector as you will have to plug the new fan cable back in. Remove the screws that hold the fan to the case and remove the old fan. Install the new fan, plug in the cable and if your computer is dusty on the inside blow it out with some canned air . Re-install duct by sliding tab at bottom in first then pull up to lock in top tabs. Replace case cover and she's done.
