I am replacing my motherboard, cpu, and ram on a Windows 7 32 bit SP1 machine. Do I need to reinstall Windows?

Yes, unless the Motherboard and CPU are identical to the one you are replacing.

However, you should get by with just doing a repair install which will eliminate the necessity to reinstall all you applications.

Depends on how you obtained the Windows. It may or may not allow you to do that.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

To explain further, a store bought full version will allow you more options than a factory install or an OEM version and an upgrade version MAY be somewhere in between.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
