Motherboard replacement for XPS 1640

Hello.

My XPS 1640 needs a new motherboard.  What model should I get? I have seen several online but I am not sure the one I need.

Service tag is:  <ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy>

Thanks !!

RE: Motherboard replacement for XPS 1640

There are two types - one with integrated video, and the other with one of a couple of AMD/ATI GPUs.  You can use either, but will need to replace the heatsink assembly to switch between the two types.  The AMD heatsink won't fit the integrated board and vice-versa.

That said, given the age of the system, and the fact that all the replacement boards will be of similar vintage, careful consideration of the value of repair vs. replacement of the system is in order.
