I received the new motherbord on monday 22nd Sep 08 along with new case ect. That evening i took apart my workin previous computer and rebiult it all into the new case with the new motherboard. I plugged everything in correctly and connected it all up. I was using a USB keyboard, PS2 Mouse and connected monitor via DVi cable as per usual. I turned it on, everything fired up but the first thing i noticed was the time it took to display anythin on the screen, my old computer when turned on wud take about 1 sec to display the startup. This however took about 8-10 sec but when it did come on it started up as normal. On my harddrive with the Operating sytem i have it fully encrpyted using truecrypt so i entered my password and it carried on like normal. Then the windows loading screen came up and just at the point where you are propmted for the login password it resets itself. Im surer if there was any hardware issue it would not have allowed to come this far. I read up on it and reset bios, started with minimum hardware ect. Then tried to install xp again but as it was loading files before it gets to the bit were you press enter to setup and r to repair ect it displays blue screen with stop: 0x0000007B (0xf7c7a524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).
I then decided to unplug it all and rebiuld it back into my old motherboard which was originally working but just put it into the new case which wouldnt make any difference as far as im aware. When it was finished i turned it on and everything started up but there was no display on the screen.
Tonite im going to put it all on new motherboard again and use an IDE hdd to try reinstall xp on and see if that works. Im hopeing it not the graphic card as that cost me £200 and it has been fine since i got it.
All the forums are suggesting things like RAID an stuff, i dnt have a clue about anything like that and dont see how it would be needed. Any info that could help would be greatly appreciated, before i have to hand it over to a pro who will charge the earth and ive also had previous bad experience with some people. Ive done various courses and have experience with computers and there components but im no expert.
