Troubleshooting Motherboard Upgrades

Whether you're shopping for a new motherboard so you can enjoy 64-bit computing with a new EM64T-compatible Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 processor or because your old motherboard died, upgrading your motherboard can be challenging. You need to make sure of the following:

  • The motherboard you choose fits in your existing case.

  • Your power supply can work with the motherboard.

  • The motherboard will work with the processor and memory of your choice.

  • You don't damage the motherboard during installation.

  • You have a working copy of Windows you can use for a repair installation after the upgrade.
