Windows XP issues after Motherboard change

Q: Windows XP issues after Motherboard change

How can i get my Windows xp to boot with my new motherboard? I know that the drivers that are currently installed on the hard drive are different but my old mobo died and i don't want to risk loosing my programs installed. So my main question is how can i get it to boot without formatting/reinstalling windows xp?

Preferred Solution: Windows XP issues after Motherboard change

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have just put in a new motherboard and processor and now my Windows 10 states that it is no longer active. I have tried the trouble shooter and it errors out.

A:Had to change out Motherboard and not windows will not activate

I had a similar problem and what I had to do was contact. The PC manufacturer and get the installation disk for Windows sent to me, it was about $29. HP has one for every serial number that they have sold. I imagine the other manufacturers do as well.

Hi, I came into possession of a quite powerful, but last-gen, PC that came installed with Windows XP Pro OEM. Now at the moment I can't afford to upgrade all the internal parts so I chucked in a new graphics card to help it along and I upgraded it to Windows 8 Pro. My question is, in the future when I can afford proper upgrades will I be able to change the motherboard? I know that with XP OEM that was not allowed, but now it's been upgraded to Windows 8 is it allowed or is it still forbidden?

A:Upgraded to Windows 8, can I change the motherboard?

Hello Spinner, and welcome to Eight Forums.

A Windows 8 Pro upgrade copy uses a retail key, so yes you will be able to install it on any computer/motherboard you like so long as it's uninstalled from any others first.

If you change a hardware device you will have to re-activate your Windows installation. Call Microsoft & explain the situation. They'll see if it's legit & give you a new one.

Hello there,

My motherboard and CPU were bad, so I changed them out for new ones:

Old board/CPU

ASUS M5A78L M USB 3
FX6300

New board/CPU

Intel Core i5 4460]
Gigabyte Z97 D3H

I was expecting for Windows to crash, and it did, but then it loaded the new drivers, and it shut off, then loaded and was working. I had to phone up to get activated - that was all good. But ever since this, there is no option to put my PC to sleep.

The only thing I can think of, is that the power switch LED is not plugged in properly/or to the right port or the power switch. Other than this, how can I fix my problem? Cheers, qwertyK

Hello,
I just installed a new motherboard in my HP desktop. It was the same model mobo and it went smoothly. Upon startup I get a windows logo and then it says loading windows files. Then it says startup failed and when I choose system repair it won't repair. I've tried things I've found on other forums but none of them worked. I'm desperate for your help!
I welcome any and all ideas and advice. Thank you!

My brother installed windows 7 ultimate and he wanted to change the name of his account so he changed it. But some files still had the old PC name. And we cant figure out how to change it. For example when you go to Computer>Local Disk>Users his old user name is still there. and in other control panel places his old account name still appears is there a solution to this problem.
 

A:Windows 7 pc name change issues

Some of them cannot be changed. It would be far better to just start a new account with the name that you want and then copy the profile from the old account to the new. Name changes will lead to chaos and will be incomplete.

Quote:
So, can anyone help with either loading the motherboard drivers into a non-booting copy of Windows (my preferred option), or activating Windows using my OEM key?



Unfortunately both methods won't work. "Windows 7" uses OEM 2.1 activation which requires three components.

1. A valid "Software Licensing Table" in BIOS ( SLIC ).

2. OEM SLP Certificate which is specific to the manufacturer.

3. OEM SLP license key which is specific to the manufacturer.

Your original motherboard ( which is failed ) BIOS will contain HP SLIC table in BIOS. The recovery media provided by HP will contain OEM SLP certificate and key. Windows will auto activate itself if these three components matches.

The replacement MoBo doesn't contain a HP specific SLIC table. So even if you managed to boot the pre-installed version of Windows, it will ask for activation ( SLIC missing ).

You're on the right track but an external floppy is a problem as it's connected through USB. I'd recommend installing a floppy ($15.00 new or an old one, free) to do the job then if you want take it out when done.

obviously i wouldnt want to send it back so what do ya think either upgrade my motherboard and smash the extra 4 gb in there or keep to my original one i dont have money to blow atall im really struggling if its something that will really make a difference ill go with it if not then ill just keep to my original and when i come to buy a graphics card i will get a 2gb graphics card to help with gaming all i really do is gaming i dont really do anything else

A:Motherboard 4gb Max or change motherboard for 8gb ?

I'd go with 4 gigs until you had a major reason to believe it wasn't enough. If that ever happens, consider your next move. Most people do just fine with 4 gigs.

I considered 8 gigs on my 4 slot board but decided against it and don't regret it.

Hello all,

I have a machine with a Gigabyte X58A Ud3 in, because I think that it's faulty I'd like to upgrade it to the X58a UD5.

Can I do this without grief? Is it a simple matter of swapping it out, plug in original devices update bios, MB drivers and go, boot up with original c drive?

Am I being optimistic? Could I trash my existing setup?

Thanks

A:can I change my motherboard

James, Yes it is most likely possible to change your motherboard out BUT. It does require a bit of technical knowhow as the memory and the cpu will have to be moved to the new motherboard and moving the cpu and cooler is not for the faint of heart. Unless your young and have steady hands and good eyes. It can get sticky uninstalling and moving the cpu to the new motherboad. Damn those pins on the cpu are small

Regarding your hard disk, That could be a problem as the new motherboard has different drivers and such.

But I have seen the hard disk moved to a new mb with a minimum of fuss. First you must backup all of your data and save any install programs with the validation codes or serial numbers.

Also, according to the OEM license. when you change the mb on an oem computer, you need a new copy of windows but if you have a regular copy of windows ie.. full version then you can install it on the new mb.

The most important thing is good backups...

Good luck and may the force be with you

A:Motherboard change help!!!

What's your budget?

I think the answers will largely depend on how much money you want to put into this project.

If you are looking for a graphics upgrade and you are replacing your mobo consider moving to a board with PCI-Express graphics. That would give you a longer life to your investment and the graphics boost is nice indeed. Of course, if you go that far you are probably looking at a new processor and memory as well.

Also, what size power supply do you currently have? Newer graphics cards need more power and most stock computers don't supply much of that.

Hey I'm new to all this and want to upgrade my computer to 4Gb Ram as well as buy a good graphics card,the graphics cards I've been looking at are all DDR3 or higher,but my pc has DDR2.So what do i need to do,will i need to change my motherboard? Thanks

A:Do i Need to change my Motherboard?

Short answer: It depends.

Graphics card memory and PC memory are two separate things.


The DDR3 memory on graphics cards is independent to what your dektop PC has installed. The DDR3 memory modules on graphics cards are part of the card. Separate to the PC's memory.

You will however, need DDR2 for the PC. DDR3 doesn't fit into DDR2 slots.

With your PC you might be out of luck as it looks like that motherboard/model only supports up to 2GB

Changing the MB usually is considered a new computer. You may have to call MS to activate with the same key number if it will not activate online normally.

Activate Windows 7 by Phone

Several other posts on the subject and in most cases, MS went along with the request.

please help my nightmare... I recently attempted to change my computer case and in the process fried my motherboard (Abit PC-7) long story... i went out immediately and got a new one (intel d865gbf). the problem I am encountering is that now the bios is loading up and the drives are recognized in the bios, but when i boot from the windows disk it won't recognize them. this is in regards to the setup windows/repair options screen. before the problem i had 2 separate boots (one for audio work, the other for general use) and each one had a separate drive and os to load from. now nothing loads up. if i try to boot from the drives it just says "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device" does anyone have any ideas??

The G6 series has 2 different motherboard setups one is standard and one has a secondary graphics card or dual graphics. I would like to know on my G6-2209au if it is possible to switch out the motherboard and get dual graphics. I have just replaced the APU processor and saw the space for where the chip would be and the different fan needed too cool both chips. IT seems possible but not sure. If anyone knows please let me know thanks

My old motherboard (MSI [email protected] MSI Global ? Mainboard - P4M900M2-L) was not working as in the display was blank and no signal was being recieved by the monitor. So I went shopping and they sold me a new motherboard (MSI G31TM-P31 MSI Global ? Mainboard - G31TM-P31). After i installed the new motherboard, i turned on the system and the blue light was on and the fan was spinning. after a short while the fan started spinning much faster. So I went ahead and tested the processor on another computer and it was working properly. The processor is a Pentium Dual-Core (I will post model number if requested since it's a bit hard to take off with the fan and all).

What should i do? is it an incompatible motherboard? since the motherboard doesnt have onboard speakers, it doesnt make any sound either. Thanks in advance

Hi

My desktop system came with an OEM version of Vista Home Premium installed. This has since been upgraded to Ultimate.

Unfortunately the mother board has developed a fault and I will have to replace it.

The original motherboard is no longer available (manufacturer gone bust I think) so I have to replace it with a different make.

According to searches on Microsoft, to continue using an OEM version of vista any change of mother board must be of the same make and type as installed on the original system the OS version was licensed to.

If this is true I will have to purchase a full version of Vista or try and get another OEM version with a motherboard. (VERY expensive so not an option)

Has anyone had the same problem and know if this is true or know of a way round this.

Regards

Copperfield

A:OEM System change of motherboard

Hello Copperfield,

Sometimes if you use the same brand of motherboards you will still be able to use the same OEM Vista on it, but you will have to check with the OEM manufacturer to be sure though.

You could get a cheaper upgrade version and use this method below to install if you end up having to buy a retail copy.

Hope this helps,

Hey all,

My mobo just failed so I am thinking about attempting a mobo swap without a reinstall.

I found this thread: Change Mobo and Processor without format ? where the OP reported success.

If I can get this working, are there any potential Cons that I should be aware of?

If I do have to reinstall how does the Repair reinstall differ than the Clean reinstall?

I already have all my Personal Files on a separate partition on the HD and I will be using the same processor and RAM. Thanks.

You shouldnt even have to do a repair, just install and see if it identifies everything. Have the latest mobo chipset and integrated stuff drivers downloaded and ready to go if you can. If Win7 doesnt recognize the new mobo then a repair is a 2nd option.

From your specs it appears this is a custom or homemade PC... if so you really shouldnt have any issues!

However, I see no problems with replacing the board itself, but the question i have pertains to the case itself. In that particular case, the motherboard is actually mounted on the left side, so, the pcie slots are currently sitting ABOVE the processor, the ram, and the main fan. Now my question is this: Can I modify that case so that the board sits like the usual matx board that i have in my other hp pc, which is on the right?

Recently bought a GeForce GTX 750 ti Strix OC Edition model and my motherboard can't handle it.

Which drivers should I try playing with there to make it work?

My system:

A:Win 7 will not start or reinstall after motherboard change

Hello Les, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is activation your only issue at this point?

It's not activating since you changed the motherboard, CPU, and RAM. It thinks you have installed it on a new computer with it still installed and activated on the old computer (motherboard etc...).

If you have a retail copy of Windows 7, then you should be able to do a phone activation, wait for the operator (if need be), and let them know that you changed out the motherboard, CPU, and RAM.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Don't know of any utilities, but you should be able to do a repair install of Windows. This shouldn't affect any installed programs or data, but always a good idea to have it all backed up just in case.

On a Win XP machine you could delete the registry keys under HKLM\Enum as the last step before removing the MB and when the new MB was installed the Plug & Play would install the your hardware drivers and properly configure the new MB.

Is there a similar process that will work with Win 7? There is no HKLM\Enum key in Win 7 registry. There is a HKLM\System\Control Set 001\Enum.

I think the ATX standard will be around for some time so I don't see new design or types of motherboards. But I do see where many of today's PC users will get rid of their computer and move solely to their smart phones.

Different materials? No. Tracings? Fiber is already being tested so maybe some boards may go light for the buses.

Maxed out speeds? No.

Computers in closets? Already there. Many new homes come pre-wired and use a server for streaming music, video, and data.

Greetings, 1. Only if you are in warranty. 2. You can enter 'SETUP" , set BIOS to defaults, and "save and exit". Staples replaced the p6-2133w MB with a similar board  used by HP in a different product number. You should get HD screen resolution. This integrated graphics board may be HP OEM. Remove the AMD graphics driver. Let Win 10 install the driver and see if that helps. Install a discrete graphics card if the AMD GPU is not compatible with Win 10. Cheers!

Download the driver for the printer from the HP site and install that during the install, it will tell you when to plug in the USB cable. This should install. Now right click it and Share it again. On the Remote computers log into this computer from the remotes by going to Start/Run and typing \\[computername] this should open the shares, right click the Shared printer and choose Connect. This will list the shared printer under printers and faxes again.

I appear to have bricked two 657094-001 motherboards in two Compaq Elite 8300 SFF.  On both occasions I noticed the sata controller in the bios was set to IDE. I changed to AHCI and as expected Win 10 blue screened. Not a problem I will just switch back to IDE in the bios and take it from there.  This action bricked both motherboards. Bios does not post, Fan's run and get progressively louder. Sometimes the bios appears - perhaps one out of 40 boots and I have jumped into the bios and flashed but still no boot after a restart. Also tried numerous cmos reset / battery pulls.  I'm at a total loss. I have never bricked two motherboards by switching from IDE to AHCI and this is now getting expensive. Any help ? Thanks

i have a thinkpad a21e with a 14.4" screen will the motherboard from an a21m 12' work with the a21e, the a21m has a cracked lcd, or could i just change over the 14' a21e to the a21m?

A:thinkpad a21e a21m motherboard change? or 12' lcd ...

It should work with the 12.1" display including its cable. If you'll get problems with it, you additional should replace the display sub-board where the display cable is attached to (next to UltraBay-cage), if the 12.1" - sub-board has a different FRU#.

A new motherboard might have a different chipset. The chipset is part of the motherboard specifications.

You need to ensure that the chipset on any new motherboard is compatible with your processor.

Hi, my motherboard is malfunction.
Therefore, I changed a new motherboard.
The hard disk was moved to new motherboard.
When the windows logo loaded at start up, animate, it freeze on the half way, then it restart automatically.

It should be the driver problem. The old chipset drivers is not compatible with the current new motherboard.

The content of the harddisk is still healthy. It can be opened on another pc or by system rescue disk.

My question is, I want to remove old drivers which belongs to the old motherboard.
Just left it the most basic drivers for keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc.

Where is the location/folder of old drivers? or where is their settings? How can I remove it?

Thanks

A:Change motherboard. Cannot Start. How to remove drivers offline?

That is not easy to do, and more to the point, impossible to be certain that everything was gotten.

In other words, You are better off recovering your data and reload from scratch. It will be a whole lot less time.

To put this in perspective......

To remove drivers off line,, find the install of the drivers, extract it, find the inf, ini, and other files,
Find all Reg Entries, and files that are placed, scattered all over Windows and System32 folders, and other locations.
Find all other configurations that have been made to any other stuff on the system.
Find all files that might have been replaced and/or updated and put back the originals.

In some other words, you can never be certain you fully removed all of the drivers to be sure that there won't be conflicts or problems later on down the road.

Save yourself the time and effort ,, back up, nuke and reload.

What if I replace the motherboard with the exact same model BUT change processors? Will I have any issues?
Was in the process of updating the bios. Not sure what I did wrong but it's dead. Have to send it back to super micro. I ordered an identical motherboard. But was updating the bios so I could switch from a quad core westmere chip to a hex.
Everything I have read states the OS is married to the motherboard (Win7 64 OEM). So if I get away with no issues from the motherboard swap, will the processor swap give me issues.
My system is a dual boot ubuntu 64/Win7 setup. I don't want to reinstall if I can help it. Advice would be appreciated.

(thanks admins for correcting this. Didn't mean to hijack that other thread)

you should not have any problems with Win7 even if its an OEM version. MS can reset if you have to call don't worry, just call them and explain what happened they are not going to crawl through the phone line and tear your head off or anything.

Boot with your xp cd [cd set as first boot device in the bios] Choose install from the first menu. The next menu will show any previous xp installs and give you the option to repair the install. Choose your original xp install and let it repair for you.

After a repair install you will need to reinstall all updates, service pack 2, etc.

I recently changed my mother board to an ASUS maximus vii ranger and have been having a few problems with the transition.

I had to replace my SSD initially as i found that it was incompatible with the motherboard. I had been looking at upgrading that part of the system anyway so that was no problem.

Shortly after sorting out the booting issues due to the incompatible SSD i found my computer generating a lot of BSODs during normal operation of windows. This was rectified by updating my windows to the current version using windows update.

The 0124 BSODs have been occurring mainly on intensive games such as GTA V and Far Cry 4.

Any information you could provide me with in order to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. I recently had a mother board go dead on me. I purchased the exact same motherboard I had. the new board is same model, brand and all that, but the overclocking on it is considerably worse for some reason. Any suggestions as to why this might be? as an example my rig is

fx 4100 quad core
radeon 6670 gpu
kingston hyperx 1866 8 gigs ram
ocz vertex 3 ssd
500 gb western digital
asrock 990fx extreme3
corsair 600w gs600

The first 990fx was running stable for quite some time at 4.4 ghz with 1.385 vcore or something close to that. I had pushed up as far as 4.8 stable and decided I didn't like the temps it was running so I backed it back down a bit. This new board cannot hit 4.4 no matter how high I put the vcore. what can I do to figure out what is causing this? thanks.
 

A:Motherboard issues

The answer is in the question - you had a fairly new board die, an Asrock (brand not known for reliability), so you went out and bought another one of the same model as the one that failed, presumably to avoid re-installing Windows due to major hardware change. I don't understand why you'd buy the same model after an early failure, unless you know what caused it (dropped screwdriver, shorted PSU, etc). I would have realized that I took a chance on a cheap brand, rolled the dice and lost, and replaced it with another brand, one of the top 3 (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI). Obviously you were on a tight budget for this build, and I'm impressed that you went with an SSD and fast RAM. If overclocking is important to you (as it should be), return the Extreme3 and get an Asus board for $150 or a Gigabyte for $125. If you get another Extreme3, maybe it will OC good but have other issues, and maybe it will fail again. All mobos are so complicated that designing a reliable one is very difficult, and cheap components almost guarantee failure at some point.

Just installed a ASRock Z77 Pro 3 motherboard c/w Intel 3570K processor. My problem is my Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 is preventing the motherboard from recognizing my "C" drive and therefore not allowing the computer to boot. When I use a wired mouse, everything works just fine and computer boots as long as I disconnect the Microsoft Wireless Mouse Receiver v1.0

Can you connect the receiver after you have booted without it?

So my PC has been stutturing for a while. As in when i play games or am watching a movie it literally stutters. like say a charater is saying hello. It would slow down and sound and appear like He-e-e-e-ello

Then like a week ago, it refused to start up. I thought it was a graphics card issue, so I replaced it. It started up fine.

Then Yesterday it refused to start up again. I did the turn it off and on again thing and unplugged the power etc.

Now it powers up fine. The fans up, the dvd drives open and close. But it doesnt boot at all. I just see a blank screen the whole time.

I disconnected all the RAM sticks and tried to turn it on. Same thing. THERE ARE NO BEEPS. No beeps = motherboard fried right?

Is my new graphics card fried too?

What should I do now?
 

A:Motherboard issues? or PSU

The easiest component to test is the power supply, and since that's a high failure rate piece of hardware, that's where I would start. Anyone who works on their own computer needs a power supply tester or a known-good spare PSU to test for failures. The tester is a lot cheaper than having a spare power supply sitting around. Any of these testers, are OK except for the Startech.

If the PSU is good, than you have a bad motherboard, and the other components are probably OK. If the PSU tests bad, then you can't really tell the state of the rest of the hardware until you connect a new power supply. It's certainly possible to have a failed power supply which has damaged other components in the computer, but it doesn't happen very often, and it's usually a pretty spectacular PSU failure involved. Smoke, flames, that sort of thing.

First start with the latest chipset driver for your mobo.

Right, this isn't a specific hardware issue, i have had a few computers at work i have had to attempt to fix.
I had a particular computer that wouldn't show any POST screen and there would be no POST beep at start-up.

Me and a work friend decided to try different components in the motherboard, we tried a wide range and variety of products, including power supplies, memory, CPU, heatsink, graphics cards and fans. This all lead to various results.. sometimes the fans would spin then stop??? other times the machine would just stay dead with no reaction? the best result we got was removing the RAM and CPU turning it on,and being welcomed by a series of beeps (guessing its just making us aware theres no memory)
so now we get down to the real question... Is this motherboard a right off?
i'd like to know your thoughts

Well, it seems quite apparent that the MB is busted...

Hi there I have a main server which is having a few RAM problems I built the machine last July and Upgraded the ram from gb to gb by adding a second module a couple of weeks ago I noticed Motherboard Issues? Ram - Possible Don t know why I didn t check before that the Possible Motherboard Issues? - Ram system was only showing up with gb I am pretty sure the OS can support up to gb and the mobo can support up to gb I think although tests were not conclusive I thought it was the original ram and so I tested it did showed as ok however and then contacted the supplier They took it back and tested it and said quot it was fine quot I put it in speech marks because the sent out a new stick rather than sending back the old one I put it back in the machine this morning and when you do It gives a continuous beep and does not boot Happens with both ram stick in on its own and also in either RAM slots I have just connected the supplier again and they think it is the motherboard And they say they want to take that back now A as it is one of my main servers I can t do without it obviously B Im not sure Its worth sending it back to them Can anyone suggest what I should do or anything I can do to test the motherboard myself e t c Any help is much appreciated Thanks Matt nb I origianly tested it using MemTest nbsp

Hi all, i just recently replaced expanded capacitors on my motherboard which is the one im making this post from, everything works except one ram slot and when im in the bios it does not detect a stick of ram but when im in windows cpu-z tells me that there is a stick of ram in the slot, ive tried many different sticks with no luck thanks ahead of time.
 

A:Motherboard issues

There may be some pins on the DIMM that identifies itself, and maybe you accidentally cut one of the traces while replacing caps?

I know (in the olden days!) IBM used to use Presence Detect lines to determine the speed and capacity of a memory module. Most of the other manufacturers of the time did not use these pins. I don't know for sure that they still exist, or something similar.

Find a strong magnifying glass and look around your work area on the board to be sure you didn't cut or solder (short) anything.

Otherwise, I got nuttin' ... ;-)
