Windows may need reinstalling. For HP/Compaq systems you may have to use their restore media or system.
However I've seen folk replace boards, RAM, video cards, HDDs and hope this would fix corrupted or infected Windows.
What should I be cautious of in replacing a motherboard with a used version of the same board?.
asus m2n68-la hp part 51890465 rev e01 The computer has crashed several times, and i have run system restore, but ultimately it crashes again. I am buying a used board in hopes that the problems will be fixed. Have tested other components, memory, etc, and all are fine.
