Bluescreen Issues on XP
Hey, I got a motherboard from a friend today and it keeps blue-screening when it's about to go to the logon screen in XP. The motherboard is a Gigabyte ga-ma790fx-ds5 with an AMD Phenom X4 2.31ghz. I flashed the bios to the F7 version with no luck... He said it had this problem with him; that's the reason he got a new one and gave it to me. He said it worked before but started blue-screening on him.
I have 2 gigs of kingston hyper x 1066mhz ram in the first 2 slots on the motherboard, an nvidia geforce 7300gt pci-express graphics card in it for the meantime, a sata2 hard drive, and an IDE dvd drive. I have a 400w psu, which should be enough for the computer... The computer goes to safe mode fine and looks like it runs right... if anyone has any suggestions, thanks in advance.

From your description it sounds like a driver issue more than a 'motherboard' issue. Possibly (probably) a corrupt driver. Corrupt video card drivers (or bad video cards) are the most common I find.. If you can, post the actual error you see on the blue screen so someone can better diagnose. Good luck

The error code is

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xBA1A8756, 0xBA4C342C, 0xBA4C3128)

0x0000007E errors usually refer to hardware conflicts. Sometimes this procedure will work.. It's a bit time consuming but doesn't cost anything . Since you can boot into safe mode do that and then go to device manager and uninstall devices one at a time untill you find the culprit. I would start with the video card.. click the + beside display adapters and uninstall the one listed.. the re-start normally.. Windows will reinstall the driver. If that doesn't help then repeat with the sound card, modem, etc.. After doing this if you are still getting the BSOD then you may have to start physically pulling devices. Hopefully it's just a corrupt driver and a re-install solves the problem.. Good Luck!

Thanks, I'll try that whenever a new Windows XP installs. I found an old IDE hard drive that works and I'm installing a new XP on it to see if it'll get to the desktop. If it does, the drivers on the old (SATA) drive are definitely the problem. I think it's a driver problem too. This should tell me what the real problem is
