I bought new speakers, but same same.


I saw that they aren't connect with an external device but the connection has been soldered on the motherboard.


My question is when I buy a new motherboard can I install it just like that and the computer is ready again or do I have to install Windows again?

Are you saying the motherboards audio output has stopped working?  Have you checked that it is not just muted or set to a different output?  Are the sound drivers installed properly?


To answer your question, if you install a like for like motherboard, you don't have to re-install Windows. You will probably have to re-activate it.  If you install a different motherboard altogether, then you may have to re-install Windows and if it's an OEM version then strictly speaking you have to buy a new Windows license.

Thanks jonut for your answer!


I didn't do something with the LS-program, but I'll check that again.


When I install a new motherboard then I get rid of Windows 10 also (what I like) because allthough it seems a nice programm to me I lost in Zenfolio the copy - paste function which is working good in Windows 7 ( "upgraded" to 10) but I'm afraid when I try to go back I'll stumble in a lot of problems because I think Windows 10 "poisened" all my system-files.


I don't have to buy Windows 7 because I bought it, legally!
