  1. We just changed our motherboard and our O/S is not working. It keeps taking us to the screen that asks us to open in safe mode and starts counting down but if we select safe mode or wait for the time to run out it just takes us back to the same screen. Help Needed!!!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You OS won`t work with your new mobo, because your hard drive still has the old mobo drivers.

    You might be able to get away with doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE.

    However, if that doesn`t work, you should be prepaired to do a reformat and reinstall.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
