Sounds like the slot is dead. Which would require you to contact Compaq and see if they can replace the mother board for you.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

You won't be able to do that. Compaq like many other name brand PC companies use proprietary parts as well as special OEM software.

If you are planning on just buying any CPU/RAM compatible motherboard, It's not going to work.
