PC posts but will not boot

Recommended Posts

System specs in sig.

 

 

I just upgraded from an Asus A8V Deluxe + A64 3000+ Venice to new items listed in my sig. I can get into bios and it tries to startup but will always come to a screen that says "Sorry for the inconvenience but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this."

 

It then lists options such as Safe Mode, Start Normally, etc. None of these work. If I choose one it'll just reboot and start all over again.

 

Not sure what else to list here that may be helpful for you guys to help me. I did run Memtest and it passed (currently only have 1 512mb stick in orange slot) and I don't have my IDE drive hooked up.

 

I do plan on upgrading my RAM and PSU as well. Hope my PSU isn't holding me back right now.

You can't "upgrade" a computer's motherboard to another model without reinstalling Windows.

 

There are ways to do it, but it is a PITA and not worth the hassle IMHO...
