Some Mobo questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OK a few says ago my Biostar Mobo died afer trying to update the BIOS thay r sening me a new one but it will nto be hear for liek 2 weeks. I picked up a new ASUS A8N-VM jsut to get my copmter working again. Should i keep the ASUS in or swap it for the biostar when i get it? The ASUS is limited on OS options. IT will only let me put my FSB up to 240. Aslo I can't find any way to change to voltage. I don't want to update the BIOS and risk messing this bord up. What do u think i should do? Keep the ASUS for back up Or the Biostar?

Have you reinstalled windows since switching motherboards?
If not have you fully removed the sound drivers for the Asus board?

Sometimes PC's act strangely if you dont do a reinstall after swapping out such a major component.

But you need to reinstall windows when you change to a different motherboard. You will have nothing but instablity and problems until you do. You said you want a working computer right? LOL
