Cpu driver & windows 7
Jun 10, 2012, 4:52 PM
Hello, if I put in a new motherboard, processor and RAM without redoing Windows et al. will I have problems because it's a new CPU and the CPU driver's built into Windows?

you will likely get blue screened due to motherboard driver conflicts
not to mention windows activation because you changed the motherboard

With a NEW motherboard if its different from the previous board you MUST reload Windows...or you WILL have huge problems...
All the best Brett
