What PentiumII 100mhz FSB motherboard will directly replace the MB in my HP Pavilion 7270 computer.  I understand the MB used in the 7270 is Intel's "Ruby".

It may be worth contacting HP to check that they haven't used a custom board. Most large computer manufacturers manufacture their own to their own specs and you will have problems getting the new mboard to physically fit.

The given answer is not an answer at all but a referral to HP for an answer.  I suspect that HP did have the MB specially mfg., but there may still be a replacement.  Of course HP is not going to give me a direct answer, but instead recommend that I buy a new HP computer.

Thanks for trying, but still seeking an answer.

I tell you what I would do, I would buy a case, just cost 40 bucks. usually with power supply. then I will transfer my Floppy CD ROM , HD, to it. Video card sound card and memory. then I will buy the Motheboard and install it. check www.pricewatch.com for differents prices and motherboards. you will be spending at least 100$ with the case and trow away HP case. get whaever you want SUperSocket7 or PII. ATX or AT.
depending on the style of the CASE that's how you would buy the Motherboard.
