Im was wondering if I *MUST* format my HD if i switch to a different mobo?
it's not a must but VERY recommended.
Step 1: delete EVERY SINGLE DRIVER on your computer. Do it in the proper order so you can still use yer mouse to do it n'stuff.
Step 2: install motherboard.
Step 3: sit back and relaxe while OS installs all the new drivers automatically.
Note: this does not mean it will work perfectly...It decreases the chance of driver conflicts n'stuff.
Thanks alot..I shall start backing up a lot of data then
I realize that wrote those steps if i didnt want to format, but i think it'll be easier on me if i format. thx
you won't have to reformat, but if you're running XP you will have to reinstall. unless the new mobo is running the same type of chipset.
