If you are using a Windows operating system, the following steps might prove helpful during the troubleshooting procedure. The Windows support team can provide you with necessary assistance.
Data backup and reinstallation
You might forget to reinstall your operating system after the motherboard replacement. Another rare chance is that the installation was not successful or you installed a corrupted version of the same software. In any case, a clean Windows installation is your best solution. Before you go ahead with the process, make sure to create a back up of all the important data in your computer. You can create the back up on a DVD, an SD card, an external hard disk or upload it on a cloud site. Once this is done, do a fresh installation of Windows as well as the driver softwares.
Peripheral device detection
Unplug all peripheral devices such as the keyboard, mouse and external hard drives. Plug them in again and check whether the Windows OS recognizes the devices. If the devices are still not recognized by the OS, obtain licensed versions of the device drivers online and install them to rectify the issue.
Improper cable connections
The appearance of random blue screens are indicative of improper cable connections. If you see such an error, move on to examine the motherboard cables. Shut down your PC first and then unplug all the cables. Plug them in again and make sure that they are not tangled or obstructing each other.
Windows Device Manager
The device Manager can be used to ensure that all the devices are properly configured. This is necessary if your computer shows a
tendency to hang or stop responding when a particular device is in use. If a problem with any device is detected, reinstallation of the driver is the ideal solution.
There might be a newer version of BIOS available for your motherboard. Download the same from the motherboard manufacturer’s website and install it to ensure proper functioning of the motherboard features.
These steps should help you rectify most of the problems associated with your Windows after a motherboard replacement. When in doubt, contact the Windows support team for assistance.
