Question about Compaq 120694-101 Motherboard

Compaq 120694-101 Motherboard would like to totally upgrade

Compaq PRESARIO 5710 (Jun/99) 450mhz AMD-K66 ™ , windows 2000 XP pro, chassis ATX, minitower

Compaq 120694-101 Motherboard (OEM) I believe the video section has finally died, no output to the flat screen monitor, has been working will for over 2 years. I would like to totally upgrade to a better motherboard and processor, than can keep up with today’s programs/internet/graphics, etc… I like the OEM chassis and would like to continue to use it, I’ve added more components over the years and I happy with the setup.
Can you recommend an MB (complete would be nice) that would fit into the chassis? I don’t mind small projects as long as it’s feasible and cost effective.

Please advise,

Ken

Hello,

Your PC case will hold any atx motherboard with 4 or less expansion slots. Just about everything made now will fit. You will have to replace your power supply if it still has the standard factory unit installed. The newer boards require an ATX power supply with the additional 4 pin plug for extra power to the CPU. Go to newegg and look for combo deals, they run them all the time. Here is a gigabyte board that is very nice.

Pc tower motherboard upgrade


you can put in any new micro-atx motherboard no problem. I can be 100% sure if the case is Atx full size- best way to check is to see how many pci expansion slots are available at the back of the case. Any Atx case can hold micro-atx mobo's but a micro atx case wont hold atx mobo.

Help Upgrading Processor


You'll find the information you seek at both the processor company and the motherboard company. As for remounting it in a Compaq case you may run into some issues of the On/Off Switch, power lead, reset button ect...matching up. You might be suprised at how inexpensive a new computer case is. I've seen some as low as $25. Your power supply can be removed and it will fit in your new case. You may just have a easier go of it. Good luck...please leave a rating, thank you kindly
