my mother board currently broke down so we went out to buy a new motherboard. if i put the motherboard into my computer will my hardrive detect it because of the different drivers.
if not, what are the steps that i need to take to fix my computer. currently i just bought a new motherboard so any help would be appriciated..thanks.
Well make shure you got the correct motherboard that has the same socket type for the processor. Harddrives will recognize when you swap to new motherboards easily. The harddrive wont have different drivers, its the motherboard that will be different drivers and its usually better to always do a full format and reinstall windows but you dont have to if you dont want.. If you decide to you need to find a way to save all of your data that you want to keep..
If you install everything onto the new mobo it will work if everything fits. You might want to do a full format though on the harddrive and do a fresh install. Up to you, its very easy, good luck.
