Thread: Blue Screen immediately upon boot-up

    Arrow Blue Screen immediately upon boot-up

    Hello!

    I just purchased a new computer for my girlfriend, and having built 2 or 3 computers on my own, I decided to put it in her old case like she wanted and move over the good components.

    However, once I moved it over, all seemed OK. This motherboard came from a HP pre-built computer, and the only thing different about it is it uses her HD now, would that cause some problems?

    Whenever I boot up, POST checks out OK, and then when it blacks out for a second, right before you usually see the windows XP loading screen, I see a bluescreen error pop up for about 1 second, then the computer reboots back to bios and repeats.

    The ram is different in there now as well, but other than that it should pretty much be the same.

    I saw another thread where they mentioned the HD being the issue because of preset hardware setting, would this be my case?
    Thanks!

    Edit: The motherboard is a ASUS A7N8X-LA.

    Clear COMS? Did you mean CMOS or what?

    Please explain, thanks!

    I cleared CMOS successfully, and still received the same problem upon booting up.

    Immediately after BIOS and POST runs, it's a blue screen the dissapears as soon as it comes up and the computer restarts.

    Thanks!

    If the hard drive came from her previous computer, than windows probably didn't like moving out, in otherwords it does not like switching harware(mostly motherboards) expecialy between OEM's.

    You may need to reinstall windows.

    If your using a hardrive with an OS (operating system) already installed that was from a different system or hooked up to a different mainboard other than the exact same one/model, then you will have to reformat the drive on the new system and reinstall your OS to make things work right with the new system/mainboard.

    If the above is not the case and your Cmos settings are all o.k. then check your new system ram to see if its defective.

    If you have official Windows installation CD's, then you could also try a repair install. I have done that many times as well.
