Hello jkrandy and welcome to the Lenevo community forum, 


To upgrade a prebuilt computer's motherboard would be by definition to build a custom computer and in addition to upgrading the motherboard the PSU maybe also need to be upgraded too for the CPU power needs or because of the ATX power connector of the motherboard.  I am not saying it can not be done but to what extent are you willing to go, may as well either get a new prebuilt system or build one from scratch if the computer is not fulfilling your expectations anymore.
