The technician is correct. Depending upon the age of the laptop a replacement motherboard may not be available from the laptop manufacture. You need to check with the HP/Compaq laptop manufacturer.
Laptop have specifically designed motherboards from that manufacturer and are not interchangeable like desktop motherboards.
In most cases it is more cost affective to write off this laptop and purchase a new laptop which will be better, faster and cheaper than the old laptop.
If the hard disk is OK, you can remove it from the old laptop and install it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Hi Compaq 323091001 Motherboard failed in my Compaq d330 desktop. What are some suitable replacement motherboards ? Tony


Hate to tell you, but I just searched on my usual sites and I couldn't find a motherboard that would work. Main concerns:
socket 478 (only found two boards with this) ddr memory (no boards with this) intel 865g chipset (again no boards with this)
Last but not least- most likely a non OEM motherboard is not going to fit inside the tower you currently own. Usually HP/Compaq/Dell use odd motherboard mounting screw locations so you cant just put any motherboard in.
You may be better off buying a new PC.

Not going booted


By My Experince Display Problems of Bad and scrambled display are due to usege of bad RAM or abnormal powersupply.
But incase of a laptop these problems may also arise due to blowing of some of components on the motherboard like may your northbridge chipset which contains integrated graphics system and display controllers. using laptops for a longer time overheats some components and they melt. So next time dont ever let air spaces on the body your laptop get blocked.The same reason may have blown some ICs on the RAM.

Hi bones698, you can go to the link below & check the bios's listed for your vKM400Am-S board.
http://download.aopen.com.tw/Default.aspx

You will need to fill in the three dropdown windows as follows:
Motherboard
vKM400Am-S
Bios
I have gone over ever bios listed at AOpen.
There is one update for AMD Sempron Processor's. Version R1.01 Release date; 7/27/2004 Please double check your system at boot up for your version. Use the Pause/Break button on your keyboard to freeze your screen. This will give you the time needed to check your current bios version. To flash your bios go to pg. 40 in the manual.

Good Luck! Take your time.

Compaq Presario R3000 (intel) 2800 Reset 4 or 5 time a day


Kees,

It sounds like you have fried motherboard. If that's the case, you have to get it serviced by a place your manufacturer recommends. Sometimes the cost can be greater than just buying a new laptop, so shop around and see what you can find price-wise.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

My compaq notebook 100 wont come on


Sounds like your motherboard or the memory on the motherboard has gone bad. The motherboard handles the initial start-up of the computer, like testing memory, and making sure all the other components can communicate with each other. Your hard drive, and thus all your data, is fine. If you have other memory around (it will need to be the exact same type thats currently in there), you can swap it out and see if the computer boots with new memory. If not, then the entire motherboard needs to be replaced. You just need to contact your PC manufacturer to get a replacement motherboard. http://tinyurl.com/h4o73
