XXXXX XXXXXnell :

hello sir/madam

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

I would like to help you, please let me know when you are ready.

JACUSTOMER-1e1e5jcb- :

Yes send me ur answer please

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

you are correct, your emachines will load up to windows desktop as if nothing happened.

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

but

JACUSTOMER-1e1e5jcb- :

What sort of changes or possible errors occur.do i just have to

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

as you know, normally sound cards are integrated into motherboard. (if you don't have a seperate pci card).. that's why, when you install a new motherboard, you MAY need to install the soundcard driver again (but generally it is detected by windows)

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

so, in short, what you need to do is: after replacing your motherboard, you just need to go to your motherboard manufacturer 's website and install the drivers

JACUSTOMER-1e1e5jcb- :

what about internet and modem settings.will they be unaffected too

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

normally how do you access to internet ?

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

wireless? or with cable?

JACUSTOMER-1e1e5jcb- :

cable

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

so you have an ethernet card?

JACUSTOMER-1e1e5jcb- :

yes

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

so you will not be affacted with this one. because you are not changing your ethernet.

JACUSTOMER-1e1e5jcb- :

it seems i know enough now thank you ill go ahead

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

you are welcome. i will be happy if you rate my service before leaving. i will be happy to help you if you may have problems again in the future. have a nice day, best regards
