does new mobo mean xp reinstall??

Hi there...sorry for possibly sounding naive but was just considering upgrading my motherboard.

Currently have a msi 6712 and was thinking of upgrading to a asus a8v k8t800 pro.

both require the via 4 in 1 drivers so was wondering does this mean a fresh install of windows xp is required(desirable)to avoid any system bugs...

thanks for your help

Occasionaly you can get away with booting from the xp cd and doing a repair, although it is still much better to do a full install of the operating system.

In either case 'Back up' all your important files first.
