What type of CPU was in before

also what motherboard do you have ?. Which windows do you have ?.
If you are just fitting a CPU as long as its compatible with your Motherboard, its fitted correct & the BIOS has bee adjusted windows will all be ok.
If you had changed things like a Modem, Graphics Card, Sound Card then the drivers for these would change and you would need to clean out/uninstall the older drivers but as its just a cpu windows is plug n play but the BIOS and motherboard must be a match.
