It two Computer Systems have accurate similar configuration such as similar Motherboards, Processors, RAM, HDD and other components including display and network adaptors then their motherboards can be replaced without any problems at OS level.

If the processor and memory components from the Dell motherboard are also used, it is possible to put a Dell motherboard into an HP computer.

Yes, it is possible to replace your motherboard with new one. Just make sure that your new motherboard fits in your computer, and that it support all of the hardware you had on your old motherboard.

Just put the hard drive in another computer as a secondary drive, and all the information should be visible. There are many ways to do this these days. Here's a few. 1) Get a new motherboard and make your computer work again 2) Put the drive in another computer as a secondary drive 3) Use a USB Drive Enclosure to connect the drive to another computer.

If the fan is spinning then the problematic parts are either the CPU or Motherboard. One way to test is to put the CPU on a good motherboard, and put a good CPU on the trouble PC's motherboard. This will eliminate the part you need to fix your PC. Then replace the broken part with a new one.

No. Information is saved on the hard drive of the computer, no the motherboard.

Put it back into an antistatic bag like the one it comes in originally. And put it into a motherboard box.

The function of a motherboard is fairly simple. To put it easily, it is the main control of your computer. It is the main board your computer is running on at all times. If you don't have a motherboard, your computer will not do anything when you press power. It's like a brain. You, or anything, for that matter, cannot function without a brain operating it.

No, the processor that you put on the motherboard has to have the same socket as the motherboard. The socket number will be right on the the part that the processor snaps onto. You also have to check the motherboard manual to see if it is compatible with the new processor speed ( example: 1.3ghz)

as long as the other computer has the correct expansion slot

U plug it into one computer or whatever you want to get information out of, then you can view the files and put files or documents onto it and then you can take it out and put it into another computer and put anything from the flash drive onto it. So basically you take info from one machine and put it into another.

No. The "graphics card" in a PlayStation 3 is integrated into the motherboard.

Viruses enter from one computer to another by the devices you put into your computer's.For example :if you put a pen drive into the and put that same pen drive in someone Else's computer the virus enters the the device from your computer and then goes in other computer

get it on your computer then put it on the other ipod

Any software given to a user does not specify a computer. This means that if you get a product, you do not have to put it on the same computer you are using. Just make sure however that you disable the product on a computer before using it on another.

It's highly unlikely the RAM and Hard Drive from a 2001 Motherboard will be compatible with a modern Motherboard.

A computer can hold memory depending on how strong the motherboard and the processor is. For example you have a Pentium 1 computer, obviously you cannot afford to put a 1GB memory on it.

Yes as long as you put all the necessary files onto the CD and the setup folder, it is possible to transfer your games from one computer to another.

You can do this in many ways. You can put the songs on a CD and rip it onto the other computer. You can put it on a memory stick. There are other wys bu these work best.

You can only put different types (SDR_SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, etc...) in your computer if your motherboard supports the slots needed for them. Generally, if you have two types installed, one type will not be usable. You can use RAM modules of different speeds, as long as your Front Side Bus can run at the speed of the lowest module you put in. You can use different brands and capacities of RAM on your motherboard without any real issues.

The motherboard, put in a simple way, links together all the parts of a computer (processor, graphics card, RAM) so they can interact. If you were to build your own desktop, the motherboard goes in first because it is the starting point from which you attach everything else.

Yes you can,u just need a slot for it to put manually or give it to a computer store. They will do the job for you.

It depends: If it has Windows (Or any other OS) installed on it and you want to use windows with the new computer, no. Windows will not boot with a different motherboard, I think it is also against the EULA to use Windows on more than one motherboard. If it just holds data, like photos and films, but NO operating system then Yes you can.

down load to a USB storage key the information you wish to keep or transfer or copy,,,,,remove from 1st computer and put into 2nd computer and upload.
