MerrickDS When changing your motherboard, if the chipset is different, you will UNDOUBTABLY need to REINSTALL your OS. It has a lot to do with hardware registry and the parts themselves. I am speaking from expeiriance. You have a chance of it working. Worse comes to worse you can start it and see what happens. In most cases you will get a hardware (bluescreen) error.[/quote] [quote=Bs|Archaon;3339039]But you shouldn't need to reinstall the OS. If it's Windows XP or 2003 you will have to re-activate.

I'm changing my motherboard from a 915G to a 965P, So do I have to reinstall or reactvate ?

Reinstall and--by extension--reactivate.
