Hi guys. I've been going through this thread and a couple of sights and still can't get help:
I own a p-6831fx and just received a x7900 CPU to upgrade. However, everytime I replace the CPU, I get a BSOD !!!
0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0xF748E0BF, 0xF78DA208, 0xF78D9F08) etc..
I know the CPU is legit because the Bios can read it.
I upgraded the bios to 94.31.
It boots, but everytime Windows is about to start, the blue screen appears.
Formatted HD and tried to put vista and still get the blue screen once windows is about to boot. so I put back the old CPU and its running ok again.
Could it be that I have to replace the stock ram?? Help is greatly appreciated. I've checked numerous forums, and a couple said something about slipstreaming the os (but those were back then for XP os)..some also said that its because of faulty ram.
I know this CPU should work based on the testimonials and threads and that it can take socket P.
Regardless, I'm ordering kingston hyper x 4GB 667mhz. The rest of the specs of my laptop is below. Thanks again.
7200rpm 500GB seagate momentus
running windows 7 64-bit ultimate (but know left it on vista 32 till I can fix it)
