Angry Blue Screen of Death, New Mobo

Just bought my new A8N-SLI Deluxe. Just before windows xp starts up, I get the blue screen of death, giving me the notice about a.)possibly having a virus, and b.) having a corrupt harddrive. I switched out my HD with an older one that i know works, and still got the same problem. Booting in safe mode does not help.

the exact error message:

***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78A2640, 0x0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
A8N-SLI Deluxe mobo
XfX nvidia geForce 7600 gt

did you reinstall windows after you replaced it?... if you didnt you're HAL is messed up. to fix this you need to repair windows...

When the installing windows screen comes up dont do the first repair...that takes you to the console...but when it says looking for previous versions of windows or whatever it'll give you the option to repair it again... you want to do it now... what it does is replace all of your windows files without touching your other data...thus no data loss

good luck

Download the setup boot disks from

Run the exe that will install itself to 6 floppies. Put the first one in your computer, turn it on, and follow the directions.
