    I just bought a new motherboard to replace my socket 939 motherboard. I have Windows 7 on my 1Tb HDD. When I install the new board, do I uninstall the old drivers and then install new drivers? Or will the new drivers replace the old? Thank you for your help.

    totally depends on specs and luck, intel for example you can pop any HDD in with an intel installation which was and will be intel and it may well start up but the general suggestion is a fresh install of whatever you are using
