Well, This is my last resort. I built this computer from scratch. Now I am trying to load windows on it from a cd. When the computer boots up it says boot from cd? press enter.... when I press enter it goes into setup. It goes through whole thing with the blue screen where it says the files it is loading on the bottom. Then when it says starting windows as soon as the screen goes black, it turns blue again and it says: "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time youve seen this stop message restart your computer, If not, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for updtes. try changinbg video adapters. Check with your hardware vendors for any bois updates. disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode then do so. Thechnical information: *** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xf748e0bf, 0xf78da208, 0xf78d9f08) *** pci.sys - address f748E0BF base at f7487000, datesstamp 3b7d855c"
The motherboard I am using is a ECS PF4 with a 2.8 ghz pentium 4 processor 800mhz fsb . I have 2 gb of DDR2 533mhz ram in there right now. I have two new sata hard drives and two cd roms on the same channel as a master and a slave. I already tried a few different video cards. maybe I have the drives configured wrong? or is this stuff just not compatible? The drives are wetern digital by the way. I appreciate any help.... I am about to just take out the motherboard and send it back and get a different kind, I figure that would solve it but I dont want to have to do that. Its a really nice motherboard.
