Default quick dumb question

im getting a new comp. its comming in about two weeks, bus some of the peripherals (monitor, speakers, keyboard) are comming today. I want to hook them up to my families computer to test them out. After i install the software to run the new stuff, will i have to do anything to get my families current monitor and keyboard to work again, or can i just plug everything back in?

just plug it all back in will work fine. Unless its a keyboard with lots of extra buttons it will still work but those buttons wont. You would need to reinstall the drivers from a cd. Thats only! if they had a fancy keyboard and even then it will still work so dont worry.

There is no such things as stupid questions, just stupid answers.
