When installing a replacement mobo, will I have to reinstall the O/S? by Doc
Putting a replacement mobo in a Compaq Deskpro EN PIII WinXP Home, theoretically identical to the original mobo, will I have to reinstall the O/S? Not sure if there are identifiers in a particular mobo that the O/S needs to "see". Thanks.

Compaq horror story-don't buy one! by Martian
My new Compaq laptop developed a serious problem in March, and I ended up sending it back for repairs after hours on the phone. They replaced the M-board, and when they returned it, they had removed my RAM upgrade. I e-mailed them about it and was told "the right amount of RAM is installed." ...

I fitted a 2940 SCSI card to my W4000. Adaptec haven't written a driver for XP to support the 2940 but it works fine with the XP driver. The problem is when I boot up it stalls and I have to hit F1 for it to finish booting up. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem Thanks Alan
