    Hello, I got a hand me down computer for cheep, its a FX7026. I had to replace the motherboard and am trying to install XP on it, but after loading all the install drivers it blue screens. I have installed a trial vista on it to make sure it isn't just a problem with the computer and it installs fine, but when I try XP it keeps popping a blue screen. can anyone help?
