That's just too much of a change. Generally, any mobo change will require a reinstall.

Remove as many device drivers as you can and let the system redetect them... it is worh a try.

If I am reading correctly, you went from AMD to Intel Chip? Normally you can get away with like family to like family, but going from one camp to other I've never had luck with trying to KEEP my XP install :(

I'll try that Jim. I think I attempted that before when I was going from P4C to A64, but it failed. I guess its time to slipstream my XP install. I'm maybe thinking about vista...DirectX 10 and whatnot. I like the feel of it on my laptop. Its not the slow bug prone OS that I thought it was gonna be (think windows ME). Anyone else have an opinion on that OS?
