Greetings all
I am currently fixing a pc for a friend and I have determined that the motherboard is the problem. I found the specs for the MB here

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...

so when I google the part # of the MB: 513430-002, its like $300 for a refurbished one. My question is there is also a 513430-001
and the only difference I can find is this one is DDR3 and its only $90. Can I use the cheaper MB + new ram or do I have to use the original MB?

Thanks

I googled HP 512430-001 same chipset but BTX form factor (yours is micro ATX) AND Intel Pentium Socket 478 motherboard.
If this is correct NO. NO WAY.
For $300 you could shop for a used computer.
HP Operating System Software is OEM bound to the motherboard. Unless you've done an upgrade with a full version install you need a new Operating system to upgrade.
Easiest repair is buy an I3 2100 Prebuilt Computer, about $500.
Then things get complicated:
Cheapest recommendation is you can buy microATX motherboard with AMD 785 chipset, first one I found was an MSI 785 TM-E45 @ $70 shipped on line.
There are many others, this one supports AM3, AM2+, AM2 CPUs, that means you can use what you have now and upgrade later.
This Supports DDR2 677, 800, 1066 memory (you will have to check compatibility [a guess] and hope it runs).
The board has HD4200 video, Dsub, DVI and HDMI (probably HDMI 1.3).
It can support 2 IDE devices (1 HDD, 1 DVD/DVDR) or at least four SATA.
Then you would need an Operating System. Windows 7 OEM is about $100 +/- $10.
I would recommend Full Version at about $150 +/- $10, your friend gets Microsoft support, it is transferrable/resellable.
Total cost about $220

You could go to an 880 chipset motherboard :
Biostar A880G AM3 DDR3 HD4250 DVI Dsub $55 shipped, Asrock 880GM-LE AM3 DDR3 HD4250 DVI Dsub $62, Gigabyte GA-880GM-D2H AM3 DDR3 HD4290 HMDI DVI Dsub $80 Shipped.
You would need $40 more for 2x2 =4 GB DDR3 Memory and check IDE Compatibility. So $20 to $42 over other plus you would need a new CPU $80 +/- $20. Say $$320
iF you live near a MicroCenter they do combo deals.

If you (if your friend can afford it) an Intel I3 2100 CPU is $125, an MSI H61 -E33 Motherboard is $70, DDR3 IS $40 = $240 Plus Operating System.= $340/$400
With its low power and on chip video and quality worth an OEM Windows 7 if your friend does not need support from microsoft..
That is using case psu dvd hdd.

The motherboard first listed is an HP PRODUCT with DDR2 memory.
The ecrater is a used motherboard using DDR3 memory.
HP 'attaches" the operating system to the mother board. It is possible the ecrater board will fit the EULA agreement. It may not.
$18 and $40 is half way to an OEM WINDOWS 7 Operating System.
The MSI board is new, uses existing resources and gets things going.
Buying a used computer would probanly be best.

Did you need to install a new operating system when you swapped in the M4A785-M or were you able to use the original one from hp? Was there anything else needed. Maybe you have a better recommendation by now. My dad gave me his p6210y with a bad mobo. Don't really need a desktop but hate to see a newer pc go to waste.

I did end up using the M4A785-M as the replacement. We had a copy of XP that we gave to my friend.

The biggest problem with dell, hp, etc is that they use the cheapest parts they can find. So if you wanted to part out the p6210y that your dad gave you the only real quality item would be the cpu.
