Question about Computers & Internet
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.
