Upgrade motherboard

notebook 17-p161dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I need to install a new motherboard because of overheating issues. Now my laptop won't even power on and shut off. It's dead. So I'm wondering, is there a newer motherboard that will fit into my case and be a better/faster motherboard? This is the number of the motherboard I have now. 809985-601

So following up your motherboard has the A10 processor soldered on so it is the best possible motherboard that will fit in that laptop. The best you could do is get a like kind replacement which obviously is not an upgrade.

I thank the both of you for your great responses. I did find a new motherboard for this laptop, so I ordered it. It is the same one that was in it and brand new. Thanks again for your replies and for taking the time to answer this question.
