I have a compaq that the motherboard went dead on. I was wondering if anyone knew where I can get a replacement?
The original is an A8M2N LA with only two RAM slots. I have looked at other motherboards but none have all of the different headers I need for Memory card slots and USB expansions slots. So I am actually looking to get an original replacement at a reasonable price hopefully.

You don't, it's unique to Compaq. It's not available anywhere else bar eBay with the usual "buyer beware" warnings.

What headers are you after specifically? Most card readers simply plug into standard USB take-offs on the board, though a lot of branded ones are known to use unique connectors to fit only the original board they're attached to.
