HP dv6 2155tx Motherboard dead -> Replacement with upgraded Processor.

Hello,
my motherboard for laptop : HP DV6 - 2155tx is dead !

I am planning to replace motherboard instead of buying new laptop as it will obviously cost more as i need a good one !

So what i am planning is to get this motherboard replaced with good new processor and good new stuffs over it ;)

Is it possible ???

These were the features of original :

Processor:2.13GHz Intel Core i3-330m Processor
Operating System:Windows 7
Hard Drive:500 GB
Display:15.6″ LED Display
Graphics:1 GB Graphics Card
Wireless:Wireless 802.11 b/g/n,
Memory:4 GB (800 MHz)
Additional Features:5-In-1 Digital Media Reader Secure Digital, Multi-media card, Memory stick, Memory stick pro and xD picture card One HDMI v1.3 with HDCP Key Three USB 2.0 Ports One Headphone / Line Out (Stereo) One Microphone In (Stereo) One RJ-45 – NIC One DC Power In One VGA Out Kensington Lock Slot TV Tuner Card
Webcam:Integrated Web Camera

What i need to be upgraded is:

Processor:3.0Ghz or Higher Intel Core i5 2nd or 3rd Gen Processor.

Graphics:1 GB Graphics Card (i want this to be one which was already on the original board Nvidia Cuda 1GB GC or if not then i can upgrade to better one..)

Wireless:Wireless 802.11 b/g/n, (i want this to be good one which has ability to spoof packet if anyone know its used in backtrack.. (Not highly needed just a requirement if possible ) )
Memory:4 GB (800 MHz) ( I want to upgrade to it like 1333Mhz if possible)

I want to know if i upgrade above from original motherboard to my think motherboard and configuration will that effect and remove these features:
(These are old features from the original ones, i don't need TV tuner feature anyways)


Additional Features: 5-In-1 Digital Media Reader Secure Digital, Multi-media card, Memory stick, Memory stick pro and xD picture card One HDMI v1.3 with HDCP Key Three USB 2.0 Ports One Headphone / Line Out (Stereo) One Microphone In (Stereo) One RJ-45 – NIC One DC Power In One VGA Out Kensington Lock Slot TV Tuner Card

Webcam:Integrated Web Camera (remain as it is)


So overall i think i am lot specific what i need, so please guide me what should i do and what is possible or not.. and Will that be reliable and durable as well...?

And guide me how much budget will it cost and should i get it assembled or what sort of solution for it.. :) Cheers !

    Well, if you have laptop under warranty then try replacing it from HP or contact HP to replace the motherboard by paying them some amt. But you cannot obtain this motherboard like desktop motherboards and install it easily, only manufacturers can do that but still doubt it. But you can give it a shot.

    Go with a new laptop that's the best bet coz you are gonna spend almost the same amount making this laptop work, TBH.
