I would like to change the motherboard of the computer because it does not support the processor and the frequency of the RAM. I would like to know if it is possible to change the motherboard of a pre-assembled computer?

Hello
Up to you,
but probably a waste of time and money.
it is very difficult if not impossible to do this, with many hp models
the best you can do, so well what you desire
buy another tower, this is a little extra expense, you can install depending on the model, power supply and motherboard you want, without too much problem
get what you can, if you want, from your HP
SSD hard drive, network card (if compatible) etc

 

but you  have this, it's already not bad

@Mirko05 

In addition to the sound advice that @Prométhée has already provided, let me provide the following information:

 

Many folks posting here seem to think that replacing a motherboard is a simple matter like replacing a memory stick or a disk drive.

It is NOT!!!

Before you spend any money to attempt to replace the HP motherboard, you need to be aware of the issues involved with doing that.

First, HP does not sell motherboards except for rare exceptions. If you use this link to go to the HP site and do NOT see your motherboard listed, that means HP does not sell it: http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-dv6-6c00-Entertainment-Notebook-PC-series/5191856/mo...

That means any motherboard you buy will be USED, having been taken from another PC. Those often do not work, or have internal problems that the seller does not disclose. So, you need to buy it from a seller that will refund your money if the motherboard does not work properly -- many of them will NOT do this because the item is USED.

Also, the licensed Windows version that came preloaded on your PC is an HP OEM Version -- and that license is tied to the original motherboard, not to the PC owner. When you toss away that motherboard, you toss away the license -- and HP will not provide you a second license. Since the versions of Windows you can buy will not activate with the embedded HP OEM license, you will have to buy a Retail version of Windows, and a license to go with it. You will then have to replace the installed Windows version on your laptop with the version you bought and license it. We are not able to assist in any of that work.

The bottom line is the process is a lot more difficult than simply swapping one part for another.

@WAWood 
I agree with you, broadly
however, I don't understand, you mean laptop
It remains a little different from the question asked here
Even if as I mentioned it is practically impossible, it is not at all like with a laptop

@Prométhée 

The issue is the same with laptops and desktops -- it's just that laptops are harder to find and replace.

I'm not going to argue, needlessly, but there is more possibility with a desktop computer, than a laptop, that's just what I'm saying
the windows license is not so much of a problem ..
This being the case, it remains for the user to see what he wants to do, according to what has been indicated to him!
