    Welcome to TechSpot

    Bad news for you. When you replace a motherboard, you have to re-install Windows from scratch, then install the mobo-specific drivers that come with that mobo.

    The reinstall you did, was really a repair, which cannot function because of motherboard issues.

    A bit further down on this page you will find the A7N8x-thread. In there is a whole lot more information about this mobo (albeit with nVidia).
