  • Blue Screen O' Death. (MOBO Switch)

    So I have just replaced a fried mobo with a new one.

    But when I start up I get The blue screen of death right after The boot menu. Wheather i choose safe mode or regular or whatever. Do I need to install the mobo drivers in Dos or what?

    General what do i need to do with a system when I am wanting to soley replace the MOBO.

    Did you try underclocking your CPU with your old motherboard??

      I don't realy care much about the old mobo as it was $5, but, I never could get a visual display out of it so underclocking was kinda impossible.

        you should prolly clear the CMOS/Checksum on your mobo and then try again, you might need to format the OS because windows doesnt do good with recognizing new devices with previous drivers installed

            Afraid that 99,99% of the time you have to reinstall xp from scratch. XP really donīt like if you switch chipsets on him.

              try a "repair reinstall" first though. NOT the initial repair option on the XP install setup. I think it's "press enter to continue setting up windows XP" - then "XP has found previous installation - select the installation and press R to repair it". That'll dump all you OS files and I beleive drivers...but still keep your settings, documents, programs, etc. It then reinstalls itself...the only thing is different is you'll need to "windows update" it all over again...some programs may not work till you do that.

                  yeah that'd be a good idea to try the repair, sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt, if it does work it might get faulty soon afterwards anyways. If you have a mobo with everything onboard then i heavily recommend formating and reinstalling OS

                    Yeah, you will almost certainly have to do the OS thang. I just had to swap out my mobo and win 2K would BSOD. The repair option worked for me, hopefully it'll work for you too.

                      yeah i had the same problem. Winxp will not let you switch mobos without reinstalling the operating system.
                      You can try uninstalling all drivers for the motherboard and then switching.

                            "Upgrade to Windows XP" works well too. It goes through the whole installing drivers, but also overwrites all the other files as well, while keeping all your settings and added software. Sometimes it can be a little better than repair. You lose all the updates either way, so you have to do that all over again. If you get SP2 before doing any updates, there will be a lot less updates to do. It has all the old updates in it and would be good to have on disk since it has the RDP patch so you don't get a virus as soon as you get online (unless you have a hardware firewall).

                              For example, if you install windows with a standard keyboard, then change to one with the media keys, it won't recognize those and there's no way to install a new keyboard driver. It's just stupid.
