Upgrading a motherboard, any thoughts?
I have a HP Compaq 6715s with integrated ati radeon x1200. I'm running intrepid because fglrx gives me a nice cool system and 3d. I tried configuring the radeonhd driver on karmic with no luck. Since AMD canceled support for my card and I don't know if open source drivers will ever be able to provide a full powerplay support, I was thinking about upgrading my motherboard. Is that even possible? I know laptops have special motherboards, special sizes and all. My motherboard is 443897-001. Does anyone know if I could upgrade that motherboard with one that has a supported graphic card or maybe suggest any other solution? Thanks in advance, I kinda know this one's a long shot, but it's worth trying cause the rest of the system runs pretty good and I don't have money to buy a new laptop.
