Hi
Just some advice. running Windows XP SP2 wanting to upgrade my Motherboard. Do I have to reinstall windows afterwards? and all my software? or will windows pick up the changes itself?

Xp, your settingsand any other software is on the hard drive.

Renew the mother board plug in the same hard drive and XP etc will still be there.

XP may find new hardware when you switch on (your new MOBO). You will recieve a CD with the MOBO this has all the drivers for the NEW board.
Insert it when XP asks for it.
