SOURCE: Instructions on how to replace the motherboard on

Hello halhoffer, the link to the system reference manual can be found here. Just click on system reference manual, this is just in case you run into any complications in this process. First off when replacing the mother board, if you plan to use the same components from your old desktop, make sure they are all compatible with the new motherboard. For instance, your old motherboard uses DDR(1) ram, if the new motherboard only accepts DDR2or3 then you can't use your old ram. That being said, here's the process in a nutshell.
1) Ground yourself (always important when you start working on a computer, static electricity can ruin components)
2) Open case
3) Remove the parts from the motherboard that can be removed. This includes disconnecting everything from the power leading to the motherboard so you can remove it freely. The ram sticks will need removed (push the tabs outward and they should pop out smoothly). If you plan on re-using the same processor, you will need to remove the heat sink/fan that is on top of it and carefully remove the processor, however if this is the course of action you are going to follow. I would recommend doing a little research because removing and re-using CPUs (Processors) can be one of the most difficult things when it comes to switching out computer components and if done improperly can cause damage. If you have any cards in the slots, poking out the back of the computer, unscrew them so you may remove them. If you are going to use the same case for the new motherboard, then you can leave the hard drives and cd/dvd drives in, but remove their cables from the motherboard so that you can remove it.
4) Once the motherboard is no longer attached to anything else inside the computer, you can unscrew the screws that should be found throughout the motherboard that are holding it into the case. Once all are unscrewed it should pop out with little to no resistance.
5) Pretty much everything in reverse to install the new motherboard. Screw it in, if it's the same motherboard model, simply plug all the cables back into where they were and re-seat the cards, CPU, and ram sticks. If it's a different model, it will come with an installation manual that will have everything labeled on it so you know where everything goes.
Hopefully this helped you with your problem, good luck with the project and have a great day halhoffer!

Uninstall both of the drives from Device Manager located under My Computer and then scan your computer for new changes it should detect the drives and it will install the driver itself hopefully you are using win 7 or vista it will install the driver itself.

I wiped the drive on a sony pcv rs310 desktop. I cant access bios , and nothing comes up on monitor. nota nothing blank. I cant get OS to install or monitor to even blink


I assume you tried hitting the delete key while it was booting. Also you need to use a keyboard that is NOT usb. The usb drivers were deleted during the format. The pc will probably not boot if it does not see a keyboard. Also make sure you are not using a usb hub and remove all usb devices. Disconnect all devices except keyboard and mouse and monitor and try again.
