Compaq Presario s3100nx desktop

Hello everyone,
I have a Compaq Presario s3100nx desktop computer that broke down. The repair guy at the store said it was a bad motherboard causing the problem. He wanted to charge me $150 to fix it. That's too much for an old computer. I'm trying to find another motherboard for this computer, but can't anywhere. Does anyone know which motherboard would be compatible with this computer. I have the following specs. Also, if it helps, I read somewhere that this computer has a FIC (First International Computer) AM37 socket 462 A motherboard.


1) Processor- AMD Athlon XP 2200+ at 1.8GHz, 266 MHz front side bus

2) Memory- 256 MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM, expandable to 1 GB

3) Hard Drive- 80 GB Ultra DMA

4) Floppy Disk Drive- 3.5''-1.44 MB

5) Multimedia Drive- CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive, 32x10x12x40 CD max speed

6) Video Graphics- Integrated ProSavage DDR KM266 graphics, Up to 32MB shared video memory

7) Network Card- 10/100 Base-T Fast Ethernet

8) Sound- Integrated AC-97

9) Fax/Modem- 56K ITU V.90 flex modem

10) Total Memory Slots- Two 184-pin (one available)

11) Expansion Slots- Three PCI (two available), One AGP (one available)

12) Expansion Bays- Two 5.25'' bays (one available), Three internal 3.5'' (one available)

13) I/O Connectors- Six Hi-Speed USB 2.0 (two front, four rear), One serial, One Parallel, Two PS/2, One external VGA monitor

14) Dimensions- Package: 22.5'' x 20.125'' x 11.38''

If you know of a compatible motherboard, please tell me the manufacturer and model name.

Thanks in advance

  1. Hello Thomas,
    I found the board I needed at online for 49.95. It was under the AMD Athlon xp motherboards. User name SAAIELETO (not sure if I got the spelling correct) found the board for me, so he deserves a commendable mention. Thanks for the offer, but I am on the east coast. I wish you the best of luck.
