    Reusing Old Motherboard and CPU - Which windows should I install?


    A couple years ago I updated my PC. I saved the old motherboard, ram, and cpu. I hated seeing them just sitting there, so I put them in a case. I am about to install windows, but I cannot remember what which version (home, pro, etc) that I had. I think home. I am just not sure.

    Which version should I install so it activates correctly?

    :)

  3. Windows 7 wont install drivers

    i dont think anyone here understands what your asking either when its nearly a 90% english dominated Tech forum.
    Step 1
    reinstall windows from scratch
    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.
