I have just installed a new motherboard (not Alienware) into my ALX and I'm having some problems. I'm suddenly getting a message about my Windows version not being genuine. It's also not detecting my bluray drive and one of my 670's. I'll have a good look tomorrow but I thought I'd throw it out to the masses first. A few other things aren't working either. I'm assuming its driver issues with most of the problems but the Windows error is weird. Any ideas??

Is it correct to assume that the dell drivers are useless now that I've changed the motherboard? I guess I'll have to put the new drivers onto a flash drive and install them from that. I forgot that the Alienware Windows disks wouldn't work now that it's not really an AW anymore.

It's all good now. All I had to do was enter the product key. I missed plugging one of the sata cables into the motherboard too (the one for my blueray drive) so once I realized that I was good to install all the drivers. I now have the AlienFX working on it too so everything is going great! My CPU is now idling at 25 Degs.

Good to hear that it's all working. When I read about the product key and sata cable, all I could think about was Doh!!
