Changing the motherboard needs to reinstall the system?

By  Kellyann Raboud 2020-01-17 1036 8

Many people do not know whether they need to reinstall the system after upgrading the motherboard for their desktops, and they are not sure whether it will adversely affect their computers if they continue to use the original system. The post will answer the question of whether to reinstall the system or not to change the motherboard.

Replacement of the same platform motherboard does not require reinstallation of the system

If the replacement motherboard is the same as the original motherboard platform (chipset), for example, 1151 for 1151 (even if it is a different brand) does not need to reinstall the system. Because the motherboard driver of the same platform is the same, it will not affect the system boot and can be used normally.


Replace the motherboard of different platforms suggest reinstalling the system

If the replacement motherboard is different from the original motherboard platform, for example, if the motherboard is changed from 1151 to 775, it is recommended to reinstall the system. Because different platforms use different motherboard drivers, the system can not properly identify the motherboard, which will be turned on in the boot process.


If you do not want to reinstall the system, you can try to enter the computer through safe mode or PE system when booting up, uninstall the original motherboard driver and update it to the current motherboard driver (download from the motherboard manufacturer's official website). After the update is completed, reboot can generally enter the system normally.


I would like to remind you here that the replacement of the new motherboard, CPU and other core components may affect the compatibility of some of the original applications of the system, such as flashback, card BUG and so on. In order to maximize the stable operation of the computer, it is recommended that we reinstall the system.
