No problems if you got the intel chip with it
otherwise the new board may require the later chip for it to work

You are missing the front headphone / microphone connector that plugs into the motherboard. Or a way to jump this to close the headphones so the sound will come out the back.

The system in question requires motherboard model ms-7184 and can be found on ebay for less than $100. If your repair guy used a different motherboard you will get the issues described and need to reinstall the OS. It is impracticle to put any more than $200 in most desktop computers more than 2 years old, your repair guy should have advised you of this straight off. Find a new person to take your equipment.

SOURCE: replacing power supply HP M8120N
Here is the link for the upgrade and service guide.
This one is just as easy as 1) removing the side panel; 2) Remove the four screws that hold the power supply into position; 3) Remove the power supply cables from the motherboard (NOTE: If the media bay reader is in the way, you remove the front bezel by pressing the release tabs on the bezel and it will swing open. Remove the one screw securing the bay in position, then slide it forward so you can reach the power cable to the motherboard.); 4) Remove the power supply cables from the hard drives, cd rom drives, and other peripherals inside the PC. 5) Remove power supply...sometimes there is a button to push and it will slide out, sometimes not. 6) Replace power supply, then reverse procedures.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

SOURCE: need motherboard for hp a6300f
I suppose you could get one from HP for big bucks, but I would suggest you try E-Bay. You are likely to find a used one at a much more reasonable price.

Testimonial: "thank you very much"
It could be the motherboard, try resetting the the bios first by either taking the lithium cmos battery out and then replacing after 30 secs or finding the the cmos jumber and unshort it for 30 secs, and reboot the mechine.
If the same and no monitor responce then the onboard graphic electronics may have failed, the motherboard does have a AGP expansion slot which you may want to test with a graphics card to see if that will work.
If you find that you do have to replace the motherboard, try to find one that uses the same processor and memory that you already have, that way you will keep expence down to a minimal.
Replacing the motherboard will mean you will have to contact microsoft to give you the installation codes for the operating system to work with the new motherboard, when you boot for the first time with the new motherboard fitted you will have to phone the number on the screen to reregister the system just follow the instructions, it is quite self explanetry.
Once all booted up and drivers installed the computer should run as normal, as for the hp recovery disks it should still work as all the information on the disk is on the harddrive any way, the only thing you would need to do is keep the motherboard installation disk with all the drivers on.
hope this helps.
