    If you change motherboard, you will need to reinstall your OS for sure.

    Hi glenn,

    Maybe you can provide more information.

    What OS are you using?
    Is the processor fan running?
    Have you tried to swop the ram?

    If overheating the system will auto shut down. And wont restart . .

    It is always better to reformat your HD when you replace your MB. Do that first and see if this will solve your problem.

    i changed my mobo because the previous one was fried by me.. and the best part was that it caught fire and the capacitors were like *aarrgghh.. dunno wahd to say..*

    so went to get one new mobo and a new ram, and installed a ram cooler plates. and what i truely believe is that could there be a possiblity of hard disk failure ?

    ram-failure is rather impossible coz its a new one leh...

    over heating worse, coz its well ventilated, more ventilated den any place in my house, with a 6 sets of fans running at a same time. overheating is ruled out then.

    now i am reformatting the comp.. but nt sure if the restart horror will happen again.

    and before reformatting, the comp was on to test the restart problem, and before i could do anything a trojan horse came and *tah-dah* all the virus start coming in like crazy...

    now i am reformmating it...

    thanks all for ur inputs, will update this thread once the reformat is done..

    peace... and sigh.. all 20gb of pics gone!! coz cannot back-up, once backup restart again.... sob..

    Capacitors on fire and restart after changing mother board...
    Sounds to me like a Power Supply problem. Ever tried another metal box?

    I also think its either over-heating or virus. Had that experience before and it happened after I tried to defragment my PC overnight........

    After that, I scanned for virus and then it is back to normal.

    if you use winxp and your new mobo chipset & old mobo chipset is of different series, you need to reinstall winxp.

    actually not really, even though it's the preferred way. I upgraded 2 PCs at home to new motherboards, CPUs and rams and Windows handled the upgrade without much fuss (which was good for me cos I don't have the installation of some programs).

    software conflicts.
    Format C: the whole HDD is the best choice.
    If you think is too "ma fan", uninstall all the drivers from the previously motherboard and install new drivers.
    Best is still format...
