    My suggesation would have been ebay, but after checking i had no such luck finding the mobo for your *specific* model. I'm sure any old tx1000 model mobo should work, but wait for someone to verify that fact.

    It is in fact the same m/b, so that should help you locate one on Ebay.

    You should not give up.. you should and must get your laptop repaired for free from HP..

    This series of laptop has a serious build problem and HP must acknowledge the same

    Tell them that you don't want the crack fixed. Tell them to ONLY replace the failed part. Keep on hassling them, eventually they give in.
