A new motherboard for a old compaq presario 5240


Hi,

I have a question: because my almost 10 years old compaq presario 5240 is reaching a prehistoric age by now i'd like to replace the whole motherboard by a new one.

I was thinking of a new AMD 780G-chipset with Athlon 64 LE-1600 processor. ( iam looking for a low budget solution ).

the only problem is i dont know if this all will fit into my case.
the measurement of the original motherboard are 28 cm by 22,7.

And how about the big switching power supply? Do i also have to replace this old one or can i use it with the new motherboard? If no,wich power supply do i have to use.

And last but dont least: the DDR RAM memory.can i use the ones i already have in the new motherboard?

thank you!

You will need a new case and a new power supply. I would replace the memory as well.

Compaq had a tendency to make cases to only fit their boards back then. Youre better off building a new unit and starting over again.

the mobo is ASUS>

Used Compaq Presario 5240


Yo will probably need to download and install the drivers.

Check that cable for floppy and CD rom are not connected in upside down.

You find some documentation and all the downloads on compaq support page for this desktop:
