    Hi guys
    Just joining today, I have an issue with my motherboard (envy corei7) and I was told I need to change the motherboard, the question is if I change the mothrmother will all the features of the old motherboard (like Nvidia and other stuffs) be on the new motherboard or it will be a lesser quality.
    Thank you

    No way to know without you telling us what motherboard you have and which one youre going to get. You said Envy i7 so I assume you have an HP Envy Desktop or AiO? If that's the case and you switch motherboards you will need a new WIndows License unless you use an exact board replacement from HP.

    If you swap the motherboard, especially in an OEM PC (ie: Dell, HP, etc.), you will also need a new copy of Windows. The OEM lic is tied to the motherboard.
