How to Upgrade a Motherboard for Windows XP
A motherboard is the main part of a computer's internal parts. Every piece of hardware connects to the motherboard in some way. Operating systems such as Windows XP are stored on hard drives, which are connected to the motherboard, but the operating system is independent from the motherboard. So regardless of the operating system you are using, you can upgrade the motherboard as long as drivers exist for the motherboard's hardware.
