According to Insignia, this case uses a micro-ATX board, so that's what you'll need. You might also want to replace the power supply too. The specs don't say what wattage they supplied, but they're usually pretty undersized in these factory machines. You'll probably need a new hard drive as well, unless you make sure your new mobo has two IDE channels. The original hard drive is parallel IDE and most new uATX boards have only 1 IDE connector but lots of SATA connectors. (A place I like to shop for parts is newegg.com.)

How do I access the bios at startup, On A Insignia D400A? I see no prompt or keys, to activate Bios.


Insignia is a Best Buy proprietary brand. In order to get you to spend money at the geek squad, they keep this information pretty secret. Hit "F1" during POST. That should do it. It works on most Insignia models. If not, you should call best buy and ask them about your specific model.

Restore dvd for d400a


Get Windows CD with a proper license and try to install the Windows fresh by reformatting the system. Before that you would need to backup your drivers. For that use http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/ which is a free software. However, the downside of this method is that you won't get any of the additional software that came included with the system, if you did get any.

Drivers for a Insignia d400a CPU


Sandrew, argh, are you kidding me?

Check intel's website, you have an intel D845GVSR motherboard. Here is a better web page!

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Filter_Results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=1065&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21

You'll have to search around but all your drivers are in intel's website. Except for one, and thats your media reader, you'll have to use to one supplied on your recovery disk that came with the D400A.

Cheers,
