A friend of mine brought his computer by a little while ago. Seems he managed to mess up some of the pins in his motherboard (an Intel D975XBX2) while changing processors. (No..... I don't know how!) He was hoping I knew a way to repair the damage but I can't see well enough to do anything with those tiny pins. Anyhow..... We just ordered another D975XBX2 board and he paid for next day air shipping to get back up and running ASAP. I've never tried to change just the motherboard without re-formatting and doing a fresh install. He has a lot of stuff on his computer and doesn't want to re-install everything. Is that possible or are we going to have to start from scratch?
