The motherboard is the heart or core of the computer. if you change it you will be forced to change it fot the same model (no upgadre exist, well a new computer will be a upgrade).

so if yoy take of the moder board you will be left with the other componenst like; the dvd reader, ram memory, procesor, modem, cables, and whatever you computer had.

so even if yoy manage to get an android motherboard (is a moderboard that is made to put diferent brand of components in it) and put the components that were left of the pavilion, you will get the same performance as your old pavilion.

if you whant to increase the performance of that hp pavillion 7940. look for upgrades for the moder board of that computer. like a better memory module. or a better video card for better graphics. i dont think that the processor can be changed in some models they are fixed to the moder board or the mother board will not support any other kind of processor.

Do u have a graphics card in the pc? If you have then disconnect the video cable from that and connect the video cable with the default vga port of the motherboard and check. if there is no graphics card then the integrated graphics card of the motherboard is damaged. that means motherboard is needed to be replaced.

I doubt, due to no support from Microsoft, anyone still supports XP. The nearest drivers I can find are Vista32 bit drivers.

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
