    If you are using an HP Windows install, it will not work when you change the board... and you will need a legal copy of Windows to repair yours. Because of this, no motherboard is going to be "...easily compatible..."
    Motherboards seldom go bad, nor to processors. I would have your system checked out by an experienced friend.
    Otherwise, start with your processor, and then look at MSI, Asus, Gigabyte, FoxConn, Intel, or DFI board that will accept your processor...
    If you are not experienced in replacing motherboards, you are in for a real treat of frustration.
    Perhaps you might want to discuss your problems on this forum... what is going wrong that frustrates or worries you?
