Typacally with a dell they have a prepritary mobo plate that slids into the case but if the mobo is directly screwed to the case and you can take the mobo connector panel off the case then yes you can. If the mobo is on the plate then more than likely no unless ya get the same mobo from ebay or the like :-(

Can a Dell F5949 be replaced with any brand motherboard?

Micro-ATX motherboard to fit your Dell would be difficult to find.
If you find a micro motherboard, check the motherboard mounting holes line up with the Dell's mountng plate.

Here is a link to a manual for this computer.
Look where it states Diagnostics lights and see if the light patterns in the back panel lights match any on the list. It might help you on pin pointing your issue. If it is a memory issue and you have already replaced it then it is the motherboard.

My Dell Dimension locks up when starting with the 1 & 2 lights on and in the booting up page before windows .I am told the motherboard is stuffed .Is this the case and if so are replacement...

If your Dell hangs up with the 1 and 2 lights on, that indicates an PCI expansion card problem. I don't know what cards your computer has , but try removing all cards except the video card and see if the computer will boot.
Here is a link to the owners manual, and explaination of all lites. Your computer has an odd case and motherboard, and would be expensive to find a replacement.

The hole where I put my adapter is not recognizing the adapter. I was told I needed a new motherboard. Is this the only way to fix this problem?

I would see if they or someone has another adapter that could be tried on that computer. I've often thought that, that type of message had to do with the adapter instead of the motherboard. Your might be the exception but I do believe that either the jack itself or at worst the motherboard would need to be replaced.

My dell inspiron is freezing know what should i do if you go on the desktop and go on a programme it freezes after a while

My brand new Dell laptop also has a freezing problem. It seems to mainly happen with media player or if I adjust the volume in the taskbar. I called Dell Technical Support and they did a remote access, which seemed to work, but then a few days later, the same freezing problem occured. I called Dell again, and they suggested that it might be the automatic updates that were causing problems, so I disabled these updates. But then, a few days later, the computer played up again. I had to call them for a third time, and they told me to restore the computer back to the original factory settings. After doing this, the computer froze yet again, so I got back on the phone and was told to restore the factory settings again. When this still didn't work, they told me to re-install Windows 7, which not surprisingly, still didn't solve the problem. Today I called Dell for the SIXTH time, and they told me that they're going to send a technician to my house to replace the motherboard as well as several other parts. This technician will supposedly call me tomorrow to arrange a time to come to my house. So, after six phone calls and feeling very frustrated and angry, I sure hope that replacing these parts will once and for all solve this problem. I will not be buying Dell ever again and I definitely wouldn't recommend Dell to anyone else.

Need a new motherboard

On all but their newer XPS line Dell uses Dell specific motherboards. The only way to get one is to contact Dell and see what they will charge you for one. You can find all the info at
Hope this helps.
