    Are you talking as far as the drivers you need or physically looking at it?

Watch the computer as it boots.
The manufacture's name and motherboard model might be displayed as the BIOS goes through its post routine.
Use the Pause Key to freeze the screen (and any key to restart it).
Download and run CT BIOS.
This utility may grab the manufacturer's info from the BIOS. In the case of my BIOS, it listed the manufacturer's web site URL among other things.
Visit Wim's Bios Page for help identifying the board with BIOS numbers.
Some boards just may have an FCC ID number on the board/slot, in the motherboard book, or elsewhere on the computer if the same manufacturer made more than just the motherboard.
That number can usually be matched to the manufacture's name, etc. using the FCC data base at: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/.
Use that info to find the manufacturer with an Internet search engine.
This is also useful for finding the manufacturer of expansion boards, etc.
Other motherboards may just have the model number of the board on them. Run this number through some of the Internet search engines.

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

USB port is physically broken on a Compaq Presario v5000


If you want to replace the broken usb connector you will have to remove the lcd monitor open the casing of your laptop and remove the motherboard and all other devices and heat sinks. Then you will have to desolder the broken connector and solder a new one, which you can buy in almost any electronics store.
Although if you don't have experience with electronics i think the best solution for you would be to buy a "pcimcia usb card"

Compaq Presario 12XL414


I've taken apart a few laptops and they are all very different and all very difficult to take apart. You would most likely need to completely disassemble almost every single component to remove the motherboard. Why do you need to remove the board? I want to warn you away from even trying unless absolutely necessary because if you need help getting started with this project, the chances of you removing the MB and ever having the laptop operate again are slim.
