    No I am saying what you have to do when replacing motherboard! The windows install from the old installation does not have the drivers for the new one.

    Old disk is fine. If it is an OEM you might have to call them to activate.

    Sure you can reinstall Windows, and it might be the simplest fix.

    However, if it was running fine then boot off the Windows DVD, press F8 until the 'Repair' screen appears and run System Restore, failure you have choices: Startup repair and lastly Reinstall Windows. If you reinstall Windows then run Windows update -- you might need to reinstall Apps.

    What changes did you make to Windows i.e. installation, updates, drivers --- maybe a virus?

    Question is this a B3 revision MOBO? If it's NOT B3 then stop -- RMA/exchange your MOBO.
  12. i just wiped my harddrive (which needed it), and reinstalled vista works perfect now.

    thanks!
