    Hi all!

    <Unrelated>
    This site and the helpful people here are (insert curse word here) AWESOME!!!!
    </Unrelated>

    I have an HP G62 340US model laptop. I was wondering if I could take the motherboard from a G62-130EG laptop and swap it with mine (mine has an AMD processor and mediocre graphics - the other one has better everything). They both have the same physical I/O locations on the outside, is it the same inside? They are both (as you know) from the same model family. Could this be done? I will use my old RAM and HDD, but with a clean system reinstall.

    Please tell me if I need to supply other info.

    I want to do this because I don't want/have the money to buy another laptop.

    If you are planning to install a retail version of Windows, and the motherboard physically fits the case properly that should not be a problem, as far as the Ram Goes if it compatible with the motherboard there should be no problem.
