    I have a Presario 7PL290 that will not boot. It started off freezing up
    after a few minutes of running ME. After powering it off it would boot back
    up and immediately lockup again. Now it will not even boot to the first
    screen. All fans are running, the harddrive clicks for about two seconds and
    the CDROMS light up. I have swapped out memory, harddrive, video card and
    IDE cables from known good parts with no difference. Is it likely the
    motherboard is dead and if so will this case take a clone motherboard.
    Thanks for any assistance.

    No on the clone motherboard, for reasons cited in the Compaq FAQ.
