    I have received MB today. It took a while..

    TANWare:

    Do you remember what Soft I should uninstall in order to replace MB from 7811FX to P-7908U ?

    -Sound Drivers
    -Nvidia
    anything else?

    Thanks

    You do not need to uninstall anything. It will come back though and change the sound card drivers and may change the video driver. If you use MSI afterburner I would disable it until the new system booted.

    The first MB that seller sent me was bad one -> I was able to boot, but could not install Nvidia drivers at all - Installation says that there is no nvidia chip available, also I had some artifacts on the screen.
    Then seller sent me 2nd MB - and its fine now.
