I just replaced my motherboard, I went from a 945GPM to a 945GCNL. I also changed Processors, P4 3Ghz to a Pent D 925 Ghz. I had the new chip in the old board and it worked fine. When I boot up the new board and try to install all the Drivers from the CD, I keep getting this error: Intel® Express Installer < The application failed to initialize] successfully-(E0441203). I also can't get a task bar/start button to appear which I had on the primary boot. I can access the web via Firefox and Netscape, IE won't load, neither will Windows Media Player. I went to the Intel site and downloaded the drivers from there and still no luck. I can't even uninstall anything, :thumbsup: checked the Bios and my audio is enabled but I have no sound. Is there a way I can access the Control Panel without a START button? I just know don't what else to do, Can somebody Please Help Me?

Did your hdd have an OS already installed from another build, or did you reinstall the OS after installing the new motherboard?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You can open different Control Panel applets through the "Run" command

Thanks garmanma, Yes dc3, The OS was already was installed on my hard drive from the older setup and was working fine until I KO'd it by screwing with the memory settings. I still have the old motherboard is there a way to get into CMOS or reset it after tampering with it?

Look in the mobo manual. It should show you where the clear CMOS jumper is located or pull the mobo battery for 5 minutes

I see you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
