Need help with new system build - Blank screen + blinking cursor

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am in the middle of building a new system for my father in law. All new parts. Got everything put together, turned it on, and was told to insert media, so I put in the Windows XP disc.

It started to load things (said it in a blue strip along the bottom of the screen), then I got a bsod. Pushed the reset button, and the computer restarted, but now, I get no prompt to install the OS. I get a screen showing the graphics card information, then a splash screen for the motherboard, then it goes to a blank, black screen with a flashing cursor in the top left.

What do I do? I have checked in the bios. It recognises the HDD, and the CD-ROM. The boot order is removeable media, then the CD-ROM, then the HDD.

Really hope you guys can help me get this solved soon, the computer is for his birthday, which is in two days.

Cheers.

To install from a disk you have to boot from disk and not removeable media.
push f10 and reboot and it will load the disk.
After it installed make the boot order. HD then cd rom then removeable media.

The only time you boot from removeable media is for Bios updates.

Thanks, that worked. Only now, I am getting a blue screen a minute or two into the Win XP install.

Code is as follows:

Stop: 0x0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF748E0BF, 0XF78DA208, 0xF78D9F08)

PCI.sys - ADDRESS F748E0BF base at F7487000, Datestamp 3b7d855c

Win XP?

If you don't have a WinXP SP2/SP3 disc it's not even gonna recognize SATA drives and who knows what else on your MB.

Your Windows stop code 0x0000007E is already an indication of the problem.

I'm sure you could slipstream all the drivers to a boot disc but that would take time, research, and general computer knowledge.

Get a copy of W7 and live happily ever after.

Edit.....I see the BIOS is recognizing the HD and that's a good sign but there's still gonna be driver problems.

Here's a great page for TSing Stop codes.

Yer. I had read up on that after posting, then decided that it wasn't worth the hassle, and just used an old copy of Vista I had sitting around gathering dust.

if you really want xp on it, you may need an ide cd drive to install it
or download the sata driver from the mobo mfg site
then hit f6 iirc to install 3rd party drivers during windows install

some boards dont emulate ide good enough for their sata ports
