Changed hardware now windows BSODs on boot. Repair doesn't fix it.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I had a couple hard drives in a Phenom II X4 set up which died (not the hard drives which weren't connected, the mobo/cpu/memory died).

So I replaced the mobo (M4A87T) with the same model, but I replaced the CPU with a Phenom II X6. The memory was also upgraded from DDR3 1333 to DDR3 1600 (both 8GB dual channel kits, though it's Windows 7 32-bit).

I did have a SB X-Fi in there too, but I didn't put it back in.

The video card stayed the same (nvidia 460)
___________

When I boot windows I get the "Starting Windows" screen for about 2 seconds.

Then 1 second of a blue screen with some white text that flashes in the top half of the screen so fast I can't read it.

Then it reboots.

I had thought that since the mobo was the same model (not same board, just the same model), and that the CPUs were both Phenom II that it would work.
______________

It gives me 2 options on reboot. "Start windows normally" which results in the reboot.

or, Attempt to Repair Windows.

When I attempt to repair it says it's unable to repair (after trying to repair for about 10 mins). I looked at the report but it's a bunch of gibberish to me. The only part I could make out was something about bad drivers.

____________________

What should I do?

Why isn't it working?

Thanks

have you tried down clocking the memory to 1333 or even 1066.
remove the extra stick maybe
Any overclock removed from cpu.

I cleared the CMOS & set the BIOS to auto or default for everything.

The CPU (1075T) is running stock, so is the memory. I did try it with just one memory stick and it didn't work either.

I haven't tried downclocking the memory but I'll try it.

The clock on the 1075T is actually lower than what it replaced 965BE.

That's the extent of useful advise I have unfortunately. I think your install of windows may be pooched.
