First off, thanks to anyone who offers any help.

Ok I built a computer using a Abit VT7 motherboard. Now I'm not sure if your aware of it or not, but a ton of people have had issues with these mobo's. They are horrible, and have alot of compatibility issues.

So I decided to buy a new mobo.

I just bought a MSI 865PE Neo2. Supposedly these are supposed to be very nice boards that are very stable.

Ok so I install it and turn it on. It gets as far as the Loading Windows XP screen, but before the lil green bar starts going back and forth BAM blue screen of death reading:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7C4563c, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Here is the tech specs of my comp:

Windows XP Professional
3.0ghz Pentium 4 Prescott w/ 1mb l2 cache
1 Gig DDR 3200 Corsair Ram (512x2)
80 gig HD 7200 RPM 8mb cache
52xCD/16xDVD Drive
Radeon 9800 256 MB Pro

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks again,

Xabbu

I take it you installed windows with the abit board installed.

If so that is your problem. XP is loading the wrong drivers. It is loading the abit drivers on the MSI board causing the crash.

reinstalling windows should work.

Agreed. You cannot change Motherboards with XP. Unless they are very close to being the same chipsets on both.
