Not all motherboards are the same size. see the form factor section in this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboards
If you have a desktop style of computer it is likely that your motherboard will be one the few sizes available. Most full sized cases will accept smaller motherboards. see this rticle for a full description
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboards It begins "ATX (Advanced Technology eXtended) is a motherboard form factor..." see especially the box immediately to the right, the introduction, and the section titled "variants". If your upgraded mother board is the same size as your old one, it will fit. Check with either the manufacturers or your suppliers one the size f the motherboard, and the second article will give an idea of whether it will fit in your case (I didn't check the link 'motherboard form factors'). For example my case will hold a microATX board, 244mm or 9.6 inches square with little room to spare, I cannot fit a standard ATX m/b in there, but I should be able to fit a FlexATX or a mini-ATX [150mm square] in there.

I'd advise to check everything before make any purchases.

My ECS A530 laptop displays only green vertical lines. can someone please help?


Sounds like you have a bad LCD screen, hook up a computer monitor on the video output located on the back of your Laptop, if the monitor produces a nice clean picture, suspect the LCD screen on your Laptop.

My ECS A530 laptop need a bios password


It depends what kind of password is that, if you are dealing with a password witch is being asked when it's turned on and called power on password or what (last time I saw something like that 2-3 mounths ago) than you have almost 0 chance to get in to your computer without it. In that case I strongly suggest you to check your papers, no matter if there's no more warrenty left, call the hp support line and as far as I know they have their own passwords and they'll tell you if you can prove that you are the rightful owner of the laptop not a thief.

If it's just a windows password, than it's a piece of cake, just go google and type ophcrack, download the live cd of theirs, and burn it to disc on another machine, use that cd to start your laptop and make sure that it boot's from it, it will automaticly try to crack the password and will show you if found one, (most passwords are stored in 2 pices, you'll see, on the screen, you'll need to use both halves of the password case sensitively as shown.)

Best luck

First: the password was rejected, probably cause you were with the (Num Lock) locked, or (Caps Lock).
When you try to format , if you are not using an operating system that have drivers for SATA disk , the install will tell you that there is not a disk in the system. You can use Vista to format and reinstall the system, or a Windows XP with SATA drivers compiled before, (inside the CD).

My flash won't work!!!


Check to make sure your camera's not on the A530 recall advisory list. Maybe the flash capacitor isn't getting enough power due to the shorting described in the advisory?:

Computer powers on, but does nothing


Try putting your windows cd in before you boot up to see, when it starts up if your laptop is set up to boot from cd. If not, can you press F2 or DEL on boot up to see if you can enter the bios screen. Come back here.
