Can anyone confirm if the Intel DG45FC *does* actuall fit in the HP S3300t as a viable replacement for the Irvine GL6E? I have a dead board and need a replacement. Don't care about the PCI-E slot as I don't need the TV-OUT card and am happy to just use the integrated VGA out.
If the Intel DG45FC won't work, what about the Zotac G43ITX?

I have the exact same problem with my Slimline S3300t. The problem occurred 2yrs. and 3 months after purchase. Please advise in resolution. Thanks.

Exactly the very same problem here with the S3320BR. The computer doesn't boot anymore. HP doesn't even want to talk with me because the computer is out of warranty period. They told me to look for an assistance service. The latter told me there's no fix for the problem. So I'm on my own with a 24 month old equipment and a 1,000 USD loss. The problem appeared about 2 years after purchasing. It seems to be bad engeneering. HP deserves an exemplar mass lawsuit to learn to test their equipment a little more before injuring customers around the world.

It would be great if someone could get the replacement motherboard that fits the absurd proprietary HP power supply.
However, short of that, this is the solution that worked for my S3500t, which I expect will work for this model as well.
See Message 10 and Message 8.

I have same issue, motherboard going bad 2.5 years after purchase of slimline s3430f. I have seen multiple forum posts of users claiming that their machines have failed a second and third time after HP motherboard replacement for the issues we are having.
I dont think I want to give HP any more of my money for a 90 day warranty on their spotty work and defective hardware. Need a how to replace slimline mini itx tutorial page, anyone seen one?
Also I can't beleieve the high number of users who have their machines dying 2 plus years after purchase. HP is full of it when they say there is no issue. Cutomer Support is an oxymoron with HP, rather get my teeth drilled than deal with the refusal to admit anything on their part.
Please contact BBB and complain

mine just died the same as everyone elses here (and in other posts), the warrenty expired in June 2009 and its been a little over 2 years and 3 months since I purchased it. so now i join the fried irvine-gl6e mobo club
can someone in HP support be good enough to look at this issue and address it, see if they can come up with a replacement motherboard model without this defect.
and BTW, i just bought another irvine-gl6e from ebay, it's referbished to replace the fried one I currently have - if it lasts me another 2 years then i'll be happy as one could be about this situation, but if it goes the same, it would be so bad that i will never buy hp again...

Not sure this has been discussed, nor this applies in every cases, but I thought I would share my experience with my Slimline s3600. I bought it less than two years ago and thought it was a great little computer until it started to freeze (beep) up on boot-up about four months ago.
I bought a replacement motherboard on ebay and it only lasted less than 30 days and had similar problem. Luckily (?) it was still under warranty so I got a replacement from the seller. Two weeks ago this motherboard also started to freeze up ~20 minutes after booting up. Needless to say I was ready to junk the whole thing and shop for something else, but in my last attempt to find a solution, I ran into a thread that discussed putting the motherboard in oven .
What I discovered while taking the heatsink off the GPU was that the thermal compound was badly melted and was covering many caps surrounding the chip (on both failed motherboards). I cleaned up the stuff and bought a chip cooler (heatsink with fan) and secured it on the GPU with the standard silicon thermal paste.
Guess what, the system booted up and has been working so far (knock on wood). I don't know how long it will last, but if it fails again, I have another spare motherboard to try.
So before you trash your motherboard, you may want to give this a try. The chip fan and molex connectors costed about $20.

I baked my MB,solderd 16 new caps, and used a cooler but it last only 4 month. Only reballing last longer,not many customers are able doing that precure job.
