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.

is your system set to boot from the correct drive? ussually you can set this in the boot priority options of the Bios

can you boot ok from a cd?

the other posssibility is a bad motherboard...
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.
