replaced motherboard with new same board and now it freezes

  1. I am wondering if i need to reinstall the chipset drivers for a motherboard that I replaced with an identical board. Everything seems to work fine with boot up and such, but going into programs, the pc slows down and freezes for a bit and them goes back to normal for a short period of time before slowing down again. if anyone has any i deas, it would be great to hear them.
    the original board died, and since its not my machine, i got many excuses to what may have happened. i looked over the CPU and RAM and didnt see anything out of the ordinary.

    Check the BIOS settings.

    If it has "Load Optimal Settings" try that.

    Try going on the motherboards manufacturers site and download the drivers from there.

    reinstall drivers / load up new bios. Ideally, a fresh install of windows will solve most of your problems.
