I am not sure which forum to put this. Is it possible to upgrade the motherboard, cpu, memory, HD and video card without reinstalling XP? Here's why: My wife has her email, Hello Kitty theme, and music on this older computer and now I use it to burn dvd's and other things and find it needs to be upgraded. It currently has duron 900, 512 pc 133 ram, 64mb sis video card and 80 gb hd. I can upgrade to an athlon 1500 cpu, 1gb of pc 2100 ram and a 128mb video card for more money than buying a new motherboard/cpu combo so I don't know what to do. She is picky about any changes that happen to her profile. So if I could get the better Motherboard, cpu, memory, it would work better for me, but I could only go that route if I can do it without a complete reinstall of everything. Before you all say just get your own computer, I have one, but hers is downstairs in the family room and convient for me and my son to use. Mine is in the bedroom upstairs. My son also has his own pc. AND I, LIKE MOST OF YOU, HAVE TO UPGRADE EVERYTHING!!!
