Next reinstall question

  AlouetteIII 11:23 23 Apr 2009

Full XP reinstall this coming weekend. Computer has a 4 x USB card plugged in to a PCI slot; should this be removed before the reinstall then plugged in afterwards to allow 'plug-and-play', or doesn't it matter?
Thanks as always.

I didn't remove mine (I forgot it was there) and didn't have any problems.

OK, thanks MAJ. I'll leave it in.

I agree with MAJ and you can leave your graphics card and sound card in also. but remember the only things that should be plugged into the PC is the power lead, mouse and keyboard.

And the monitor of course
