    So, my girlfriend fried her old processer and just recieved a new one. We got everything installed and working into her case, everything works, except when we try too boot windows (XP pro), we get this error.

    "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 whese steps:

    Check for viruses on your computer. Remove and 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 than restart your computer.

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFA0940, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

    I would like too thank anyone in advance for any help they give. Thank you very much!

    First off Why did the origional processor fry? If that problem has been addressed you are good to proceed.
    The warning you see is often associated with a hardware change or the bios settings are wrong possibly. Get into Bios and make shure the settings are the same as they where for the old processor unless you have a different model processor. The stepping may be different on your new processor even if it is the same model, so if it was overclocked you will need to start your bios Overclock from scratch. Was it overclocked? That is a whole new ballgame if so. Then start by setting the Bios to default. An Overclock must be slowly coaxed in. A good Overclocked processer will never have run if the final setting had been dialed into bios on the initial installation. You train your processor to take it's final OC is best as I can explain it.
    This may very well be corrected in your Bios settings.
    Need a bit more information from you as to what the origional setup was and what you are working with now.
