post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
HI I got myself a AMD 3800+X2 skt 939 with an ASUS A8N5X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 and a 7900GTO 512MB upgrading from a p4 3.2 HT skt 478, and a 6800GT AGP!!.
Ok my problem is that I dont want to reistall windows on my hard drive can this be possible? I have a WD Raptor 74G 16MB, and a x-Fi creative sound card. Please help I have a lot of files and songs I dont want to delete, plus I dont want to spend a lot of time again downloading patches for all my games, I'll really appreciate the help.

Since its a new motherboard I think you'll have to reinstall Windows. I don't think there are any others ways.. just back up your files, reinstall, then transfer the files back. Won't take that long

If you 'repair windows' you will have no problem. Put the windows disk in, hit 'enter' when it ask you if you want to install, and then press 'R'. That should detect all new hardware, and no files will be lost. I did this when I got a new mobo and have had no problems.

If you are going from a nVidia, Via, etc to another of the same chipset you will likely not have to. If you are however going from one to another you will not be able to avoid a new install.
