New Components, want to reinstall windows, can't?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
I got a new processor, motherboard, videocard, and RAM. I want to re-install Windows, but I get the blue screen of death everytime I try. When I put in the XP Pro CD it starts to load the windows files, when it finishs I get the BS of D and it says either I don't have enough space or there is a driver error....

I think it may be a mothberboard problem, Im not sure.

*EDIT: Error message posted on my last post*

Have you reset your C-mos this can be the main cause also make sure all components are in the mother board and secure.

because sometimes the QC people play around a little bit (the date/time was already set when I upgraded)

Just trust me now that you have got everything connected reset the c-mos then power back up. the C-mos is like the bran of your motherboard and as seeing your problem seems hardware based i would start there.

Darn, I have everything set up in Windows now. Will I see a performance boost by reinstalling XP Pro (all new hardware).

I have found PRO to be alot more stable OS and has all that extra support for netwroking and really does include a better lot of tools for operating system maiantenance as such. All in all i prefer it.

I lost you

Ok, here it is:

I got all my new stuff (CPU, mobo, VGA, mem) and installed it. I intended to reinstall Windows XP Pro, but it would not let me. So I got everything working on same install that my old parts were on.

If the CMOS thing works, is it worthwhile to re-install XP Pro?

Yes it will be as your Current OS has all the drivers and registry enteries of your old hardware and this will conflict. I reccomend re-installing windows at some point anyway even if the C-mos clear doesnt do anything.

Just to let you know, you are going to have to call MS to register windows, because of your mobo change. MS stores your mobos type, and it will recognise that something is not right when you install and it will tell you to call in to register.
