The causes for a motherboard burnout can vary, but it's generally a bad power supply or a faulty electrical connection.  It can also be the result of poor design or lack of quality control during manufacturing.

Motherboards are not repairable by an end user or your local computer repair shop.   The motherboard will have to be replaced.  If this is a continuing expense, you should get another laptop.

Since you say this is a common problem, you should contact compaq and discuss it with them.  They may have issued a recall or have other compensation for you if this is a known problem with the model.  Also try googling for other users with the same problem.  Perhaps a sufficient number of cases/complaints might make them come up with a more permanent repair.

I've honestly have two or three come through the shop with something wrong with the motherboard.  First it was the memory slot then it was the keyboard controller then I can't recall what the third was for but I do know that these are duds IMHO.

could be bad caps  :  http://www.badcaps.net/
or due to heat (fans not working properly, vents blocked by dust or other things . ..
if it is a common cause, does Compaq not have a replacement sytem for it ??
