I was thinking about upgrading my computer's RAM as it is too slow to run what I want.
I have a Compaq Presario F700 Notebook. The Motherboard can only hold 2x 1GB RAM modules. It is the default, straight from-the-box Motherboard for this computer. I wondered "what if I bought a new motherboard that can hold more RAM?"
I was hoping that somebody could tell/find out for me:
-Which Motherboards are compatible with my system, and have the facility to hold 4GB RAM.

I know I'm asking alot but it would be very appreciated. Thank you to all who reply to this!

Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

Check the specs for your computer and install the maximum memory supported by your motherboard that you currently have. Replacing motherboards is not a viable option.
