I mean... that's just friggin hilarious.
How the heck did you get that?
Even I didn't know that coupon existed.
PS: Now I feel really stupid.
Just asked the new owner where that coupon came from and not only is from Rocky's website, but he says he put it there 3 YEARS ago.
Goes to show how much I'm paying attention.
When I sold the biz, I thought I would be retired, not retarded.....

All kidding aside, I know how to remove drivers from the Device Manager, of course, but it's not as if there's one in there that says "chipset driver", so I'm curious as to how one might go about removing it?
Can it be done and if so, how?
Then I can go to bed a little bit less stupid tonight.

|cmorris1441||I installed the new board and did a fresh install. Everything is running great now, I'll be installing the old board in the new build when my case comes. Supposed to be today, but the snow might change that. I left my PC on overnight to move all the files back onto it and it's mostly back to how I had it now. Thanks everyone, reps for you all now.|

Instructions for Windows 8 here
Depending on what happens when you install the new hardware you may or may not even need to do any of that. The newer OS's are a bit more friendly for swapping out hardware without re-installing windows, more so than XP was and other prior operating systems.
Reactivating is not a big deal. You just call Microsoft, tell them you got a new drive, they'll help you reactivate if needed.

Clear the cmos to reset it the way it was and don't do anything more until you install the new mobo.

I updated the BIOS from 1.A to 1.J on the old MSI board (original build still together), after the update Windows rebooted, and now I get blue screens when booting Windows. Can I move on with my build? I'm guessing it just needs a fresh install after the BIOS update. I needed to do the update for the MB to support the i3-2120. I did the update using MSI Live Update 5.
edit: I used to get a series of beeps when booting, now I only get one error-like beep. I can get into BIOS and it works fine and shows an update version.

Here's how I did it:
1. On the old motherboard, boot into Safe Mode.
2.Remove the chipset and device drivers.
3. Swap out the motherboard
4. Call Microsoft for OEM license reactivation, if required
5. Boot into Windows on the new board and install the new motherboard's chipset and device drivers.

Also, the MB. I have been using an 8 pin CPU connector with my other MB. I found a case of the PSU cords I haven't been using (it's modular) and there wasn't a 4 pin in there. I did some searching and I think I can just plug in 4 pins from the 8 pin cord. Can someone confirm this?
Here's a link to the PSU:
EDIT: Image of the PSU shows a 4 pin cable, I don't know where it is thoug, unless it's one of the non-modular ones. I'll have to check.
