Good Afternoon All,
One of my client pc's motherboard went bad and it is an older motherboard. I am having an issue finding a replacement, I can only find refurbished ones on eBay, it uses a CPU with a socket 478 connection. I can't seem to find too many motherboards that still use or have recently used that connection. My question is if I purchase a new motherboard, CPU and ram, what all will have to be redone for the hard drive to function properly and the OS to work. I have heard clean installs being the only option, I am wondering what other options are on the table, it is running Windows XP Professional 32-Bit.
Please let me know if you need more pc info.
