Installing the New Motherboard First, make sure that the new motherboard is the same form factor as the case. Then, make absolutely certain that the power supply is set for the correct voltage to avoid zapping the new board. Look at the back of the case for a small switch that says 115V and 230V, or something similar, as shown in Figure 3.12. This should be set to the voltage available in the country in which it is used; in North America, this voltage is 115.
Figure 3.12: Power supply voltage switch. Next, make sure that no conductive surface comes in contact with any metal parts of the case. While some cases have elevated mounting holes that hold the board away from the case wall (see Figure 3.13), other cases call for standoffs. Standoffs are small spacers that go between the board's and the case's mounting holes (see Figure 3.14).

Figure 3.14: Standoff assortment. After screwing in the screws, you need to install the power connectors and then follow the manufacturer's instructions for setup, which we discuss next. After you've done this, reinstall all of the compatible peripheral devices (if any) that were connected to the old motherboard. For more information on installing peripherals, see the rest of this chapter, Chapter 2, and the chapter appropriate for the type of device in question.
Motherboard Setup There are certain things you must do to the motherboard to get everything working together. Some boards have stickers indicating the proper positions of DIP switches and jumpers, but in most cases, the documentation (manual) is essential. If you don't have the manual, you can usually find information on the manufacturer's Web site.
Tip In some cases, the board was manufactured by one company but sold by another under a different trade name. In this case, you might be able to find the actual brand and model number by peeling off a brand/model-number sticker on the board to reveal the actual manufacturer's sticker. Make sure the board is not under warranty when you do this; peeling off the sticker might void an active warranty.
On the CD See the Industry Contacts document on the accompanying CD-ROM for manufacturer contact information.
DIP Switches and Jumpers All boards have DIP switches and/or jumpers (see Chapter 2 for general information on these). Depending on the board, these are used to select such settings as the speed and family of the processor, and there might also jumpers to reset the CMOS, redirect the sound from the rear to front connectors, select the type of memory to install, and others.
