Hi everyone


so i have an hp pavilon dv9700 laptop that i would lke to pretty much redo hardware wise. My first question is could for xample put an asus board in the hp laptop housing by any chance?and if not, do i have to purchase an identical motherboard to whats aready in the the laptop. the lptop is about 4 or 5 years old or more and id really like to get a newer board into it if possible. so if you have any advice to offer (besides buying anew laptop) id really appreciate it.


thanks form

highly unlikly-laptop motherboards are custom made to fit the case. To garentee it would fit you would have to find most likely a used motherboard out of the same series laptop, hopefully higher up the chain then the one you have-and even then, with many laptop models, they all use the same motherboard they just use different CPUs, GPU, and memory configs. Theres a chance you may be able to find a higher grade motherboard that would fit in your current case-but not likely.

Navigate to "Maintenance and service guide", 5.45 meg PDF.

3 different boards for Intel, 2 different boards for AMD. None of them will allow a system that old a meaningful upgrade.
