Thread: Need Some Motherboard Help

  1. #1
    I had PCCHIPS M957G motherboard with a Celeron D 2.66. The motherboard fried and I have an Athlon XP 2500+ just sitting around.

    I wanted to know if i would be able to get a new motherboard for the 2500+ and use that on my existing hd w/o having to format it and reinstall XP.

    Thanks for any help.

    Best option is to perform a repair install.

    It take's just as long as a normal install, but it reloads any drivers etc (which you need for the new mobo) while keeping all the installed software.

    You don't want the Repair Console.
    Restart the process and specify a new install.
    Windows will then discover the old OS and option to repair or replace.
    Now repair.

    Basically, you need to get past the screen where you chose the Console and go for the second repair option.

    Thanks for the help so far.

    But I cant install AOE3 now.

    None of my games were working so I uninstalled them all. I cant install video drivers for my Ti4200. And so on...

    Yea, finally got my system working.

    Got a 2600+ in right now but motherboard is only giving me 1.1 GHz. Somewhere around 1.53 if I bump up the FSB but it wont boot windows

    I try to get on aim as much as I can. Hard to work 48+ hrs a week, spend time with my girl, spend time with friends and family and stay on the net.
