In need of some help and guidence
Ok to begin I have some good knowledge on how to build a computer, as I have build my own and I did pretty good with that build. What I would like to do is upgrade my dad's motherboard and processor. I found a brand new socket 370 motherboard at work that I am going to use and we bought a PIII 1.2 gig processor. My dad currently has a PIII 500 mhz chip, so this would be a nice cheap upgrade
What I need help with is the proper way to install this new motherboard into his computer. I tried just putting the motherboard in as is, and that obviously didn't work. I later found out that I should wipe the HD and put a clean windows install.
Is this basically all I really need to do to get up and running? Any advice you guys could provide would really be a big help since you guys have really helped out in the past.
