    OOOOOOOOOOK, it's been a while since I've written here with aproblem, so I'd figure I'd let this crew hear me out and see

    Recently got a brand new ( to me ) mobo for my PC. I got it from a friend so I dont know the maker (the loader says FIC 1st mainboard). It was pretty much a barebones system

    I took all my hardware from the old PC and stuck it in the new one, on boot it royally flipped out. The last file that loaded was agp44.sys, after that I get the XP BSOD sytem halt screen

    0x0000007b (0xf894c640, 0xc00000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    Now here's the funny part!! I cant get the new board to recognize my cdrom drive. I wanna format this sucker anyway
    Any thoughts guys?

    I would format and be sure to download the drivers for the chipset.

    Is it posted when you power on the PC?

    If not check the jumpers and cable connections.

    And I also recommend you format and reinstall Windows as Mobo suggested. When you change hardware like you did it is a must for Windows to run properly.

    Did the hard drive previously contain all the drivers for the old motherboard?

    If so, the problem is likely to be the inability to recognise the IDE controller, and cannot see the HDD (or CD). This is typically a 7B stop error.

    You must, when changing motherboards, uninstall everything before you power down the last time on the old board.
