BSOD on startup *Fixed*

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just installed the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3, i7 2600K, Corsair H80, and 8GB Ripjaws 1600MHz. When I try to boot into windows I get a BSOD right after the Starting Windows logo. It flashes very fast and reboots so I can't read it. I can't boot into safe mode either. Tried re-seating RAM, Windows repair, changing SATA ports. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 now because it boots into this just fine. Any ideas why it would be doing this?

Is there a way to back up an image of Wn7 from Ubuntu? If there is I'll just do that and reinstall Windows.

Make sure AHCI is turned on/off, (check with both) at work sometimes computers have trouble imaging/loading with it turned on.

Also, it's usually best to reimage prior to such a dramatic hardwarr change like that. I suggest reformatting after you back up all your stuff.

Just a thought i just had. IF you're getting the issue even trying to boot into safe mode, then it's a bios/hardware issue somehwere

I tried both ACHI and IDE, with IDE it gets to my login screen but with really low resolution. I log in and the screen is just black with a cursor, can't do anything but open task manager.

Update: I was able to boot into safe mode and installed the necessary drivers. I am able to boot into windows but after about 10 minutes I get a BSOD.

Update 2: I ran BlueScreenViewer and found out that it was AMD OverDrive causing the problem, I uninstalled that and everything runs great now! thumb.gif
