Assuming your running the Dell supplied OS.
If you change that mobo there is a good chance Msft will get upset.
That means you get to buy a new OS.
Contact Dell.....see if they can send you an exact replacement.
Install it........fingers crossed that Msft does note notice the difference.

I'm be willing to buy a motherboard with same specification (of any brand) and within the price range of INR 5000 or US $100. I had an option to buy the motherboard which i had by default but couldn't find it at the aforesaid price.
By the way i'm from India.
Thanks in advance to who so ever replies.
