Motherboard replacement (upgrade)

Hello everyone.
I wanted to ask few questions about HP compaq nc6400. It is very actually old compuiter and everything needs to be updated. It also have very old motherboard. I want to change it, because of its old and glucks. May I ask, if I can choose better motherboard? Like change it with newer and different laptop hardware. I realy need your help please. It looks like impossible mission for this pc, because u need to check size e.c. If everything is in right places e.c. But I also wanted to ask, If there is a way, if I can get motherboard, Can I use all details from compaq motherboard to brand new motherboard if it is possible?
I have windows XP OS as maximum OS on laptop and I have drivers for it, but I also want to get windows 7 and improve performance. If I can get new motherboard, I can mabye also get new drivers for it. The better motherbord, the better is everything...
Please I will wait back for answer.
Thanks!

  1. Laptops are really so special design that it's a mission impossible to find a fitting motherboard that wasn't specifically designed for that model.

    Anything else to boost up on PC if you know?
    Well I know that motherboard will resolve all problems, but if there is something, I will be glad to talk with them.

  4. Laptops can, at best, be upgraded in two ways:
    1) More RAM.
    2) Replacing the HDD with an SSD.

    ... but since, as you state, your laptop is very old the best replacement is simply a brand new laptop!
    The cost of "upgrading" your old hardware by replacing individual parts will most likely be higher than the cost of buying a new computer with even better performance.
