BSOD on Dell Inspiron 1545

I'm getting the bsod that refers to error 0x0000007B and mentions either virus or hard drive failure.  I have replaced the HD - same result.  I have removed the HD, flashed the bios from A13 to A14 successfully to remove bios viruses but same error.  I have replaced both 2GB memory modules and same result.  Thoughts?

When I boot from an OS DVD it will load files and then blue screen before it gets to the format screen.

Switched from AHCI to SATA and it worked like a charm.  Thanks.

Glad it is working for you because a BSOD is a scary thing on a new machine.
Cheers!
