    Question Damn Compaq Mobo! Help me Get the Good Sh**

    My cousins compaq computer does not start because of his mobo..

    i want to buy a new one, compaq charges 300 dollars, hell no

    so far i have gathered the following info for this mobo

    P4, Socket 478, intel 845, 1.6 ghz, 400 fsb, pc2100 ddr-sdram cl 2.5

    model:0784h chipset: intel845d rev4 southbridge: intel 82801ba(ich2)
    bios: compaq 686Y2v3.04 7-29-02 agp: 2.0 data rate 4x
    side band addressing enabled...


    so far, we think that the only problem with the comp is the mobo, so i am looking just to replace that and keep the same cpu, ram, hdd, etc.

    basically, one newegg, i need to find a good mobo that will work with this computer

    btw its a compaq presario 5423US, the mobo p/n is 267528-004

    TIA!!

    I'll let someone who has studied socket 478 motherboards more provide you with a recommendation. However, just what makes you think the motherboard is the problem? If his computer doesn't start, that could very well be a power supply problem, or a number of other possibilities.

    actually, i took it to circuitcity and they said it was the mobo

    the psu i dont think is the problem because the computer turns on, the cpu fan spins, the lights go on, the cd drives eject, however on the screen there is nothing (the self-test screen, check video, etc thing)

    at circuit city they tested the video card, and that had no problems, so....

    It can also be the CPU, and still the PSU.

    The Intel "D845GVSRL" i845GV Chipset Motherboard for Intel Socket 478 seems like it would work. This is $58 from Newegg. But I have always thought that systems that were built by companies, i.e. Compaq, Hp, Sony, were hard to upgrade. I don't know. But this mobo has the same socketand chipset as yours.

    Here's a cheapass motherboard that will work for you:
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...170-116&depa=0

    Here's one with better reviews, a better chipset, and better upgradability, with a much higher price:
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...170-109&depa=0

    And this (I'm assuming) looks to be a popular motherboard with enthusiasts in mind that will overclock well and perform well:
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-484&depa=0

    But again, there should be someone with more experience in socket 478 that I have. *cough* AMD_man *cough*

    T_Bell had your most stable and probably cheapest solution.
