P8P67 new build blue screen?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I've spent the better part of my night looking at P8P67 forums to solve my problem. Still at step 1. Here's my issue.
My computer boots up, holds the boot device led, then turns it off after about 5 seconds. At the American Megatrends screen, it recognizes my HDD and opts to boot from it. It then proceeds to tell me the disk has been damaged (it works fine in my other tower...) and needs to be repaired. So I let it repair only to have it reboot, flash a blue screen at me, then reboot and start all over. I'm about to scrap the whole thing and check into the loony bin...help...

What is telling you the disk needs to be repaired? Is it Windows?

If you are successfully reaching the Windows boot-up process, then your issue is probably with the install on the disk, not the mobo. What was your setup on your old tower? Also, are you using AHCI or IDE mode on your old setup?

I literally had the exact same issue with my P8Z68-V. I figured out it was because one of my sticks of RAM was not pushed in all the way. You might think it is, but it isn't. You really need to force it in there.

This is why I always check all my connections with a laser pointer. If I get any reflection, I can tell that the pins are showing and therefore not installed all the way.

As far as I know, my previous tower was IDE. Windows 7 is what is telling me I'm screwed.can I count on reformatting?
I tried reseating/rearranging the Ram, no avail.

Update: I found an article pointing to changing from IDE to AHCI (which is the default P8P67 setting) you will most likely cause windows to load improperly and you need to do a repair install. Wretched computers...

If you're willing to reformat, I strongly recommend it. AHCI provides numerous benefits over IDE, not least of which is a substantial speed increase (something like 5-15% depending on the HDD).

Wow. Yeah, I have all of my core filea saved to my external HD, so I'll probably run out at some point and grab a new dvd drive. If I can remember, I'll give news if it getsfixed. Thanks alot for the help!

If you have the Windows 7 iso (or access to a Windows 7 disk and a computer with a disk drive and usb port), you could make a bootable thumb drive and install windows that way. That's what I always do. It's much faster than a disk, and I can update it with slipstreamed drivers/updates more easily.

did you look up bluescreen code?

is it possible the optical drive is messed up in any way?
also disc, does that mean the hdd is damaged or did you think it meant the OS disc
random BSOD sometimes happen with bad cables so try replacing your sata cables
