It wasn't too long ago that I was here asking for help concerning my computer and its problem not starting up anymore. After testing everything possible I came to the conclusion that my motherboard was indeed "dead", along with my PSU. Since then I have bought a replacement motherboard for my system (A8N-SLI Deluxe) and a new PSU (Silencer 750 Quad). Now, from what I understand you cannot just simply replace the old parts with the new ones and expect your PC to work right away. After searching on Google a little I have seen that you must reinstall Windows on your hard drive so that the motherboard can recognize it or something? The problem is I still have some data I want to access on my hard drive and I don't want to erase it. Is there any thing I can do to back it up first?
