    the chipset is soldered onto the board and cannot be removed. you need to give more information than that, btw.

    chipset compatibility?

    You can get any chipset as long as it supports your hardware. Be aware that unless you get nearly the exact same board, you will have to reinstall windows(or whatever os).
