I reinstalled Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell Dimension 4700. Everything worked well except that I can't get it to connect to the Internet. In the device manager, it shows the "other devices" with question marks. After trying a few things, I remembered that a new motherboard was installed on this machine. Does that effect the reinstall? Will I need different drivers from the ones on the CDs that came with the machine?

Yes, you need to install the motherboard chipset drivers for the motherboard that is currently installed.
