Ram. The only disc I have are to reload system. These are the restore
discs that came with machine. Can I swap motherboard and not have to
reload. The HD is good. How do I swap the motherboard. I don't mean
how to physically do that. I can do that. The mobo will come with a
motherboard disc. When do I load it. I guess the copy of XP is set p
for the other mobo. What is the order in which I should proceed?
Any recommendation for a mobo for the amd 2800. It needs to have room
for my son's video card which I believe is AGP or could be PCI. He
also has PCI Video Capture Card and a Sound Card which are PCI. He has
a CD ROM and DVD ROM.
Re: Need Motherboard
Many restore CD's examine the motherboard's ESCD to look for name branding
(i.e. before the restore starts it looks for an oem 'emachine' motherboard)
so your restore CD's might not work. 'Badgolfermans' advice is pretty good
and would save you a lot of work if successful.
