RE: New Motherboard

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Vic,

Bills right.  If you change the MB you need to do a complete reinstall of
you OP system.  I would back up all of my data files and then do a complete
reformat of the hard drive and reinstall from scratch.

I'm always amazed at how much faster the computer is when I do this.

Doesn't matter. Typically it's best to plan on reinstalling the
Operating System after a MoBo upgrade. Sometimes the system will boot up
after the upgrade, but often it will not. Either way, things will likely
"break" unless you do this.

It's not a bad idea anyway, because with Windows systems, unfortunately,
the system degrades over time anyway. One ought always to plan for a
complete reinstall about once a year. It's not that big a deal with the
"Save Program Options," etc., feature.

I suspect if you reinstall, everything will work again. Bummed drivers,
more than likely.
