Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook
Well to be honest with you bud; you're probably going to save money just replacing it with a newer machine.
Laptops are built a lot different then modern desktops are. Instead of having PCI and PCX style expansion slots; everything is basically built onto the motherboard. Some laptops even have the CPU's integrated onto the motherboard instead of having a slot or socket for them.
If you're still wanting to switch out motherboards; the biggest thing is finding one that will fit. Most likely; you'll have to find one from the same model of computer.
As for the changing process; it's a little difficult as you have to take just about every screw out of a laptop to remove the motherboard. The machines are built around the motherboard in this way to reduce size and make the PC lighter and smaller for the user.
I hope this helps you out a little buddy.
