Chapter 38. Replacing Your Main System Board > Installing a New System Board

Installing a New System Board

Regardless of which motherboard size or style you purchase, replacing your existing system board requires careful planning. Although replacing a motherboard may at first appear to be a major technological undertaking, in reality all you need is a little bit of planning and a bit more patience (and of course a screwdriver or two) to accomplish the job successfully.

Remember to unplug your PC and ground yourself before you remove the PC's cover. Make sure that you carefully remove each component from your existing motherboard and make sure that you place all the components on a safe surface, such as an uncluttered tabletop, where they cannot be damaged physically or by static electricity.
