I had a look at the pic & lookd like the backplate layout is standard for mATX & the holes are in the right place, so another mobo should fit your case.
Only thing to check is the front panel connectors on the mobo (ie pwr switch, pwr led etc). Some compaq machines have a single block connector for these which will cause you problems on a standard mobo,
