Question about Computers & Internet
Ive just switched over fom a Dell Dim. 3000 stock mobo to the biostar. after setting everything up and having bios run correctly, i press F1 with proceeding. After Windows xp logo shows up for a bit the blue screen of doom shows up after saying there is a hardware error and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage. switched back to stock mobo and it works. any solutions?
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Whenever Microsoft Windows XP is installed on a system, the OS is binded to the motherboard, specifically to the chipsets. I am assuming that when you replaced the motherboard, the OS was not reinstalled and it was still binded to the original Dell Dimension board, most likely an Intel 925X Express chipset. When the OS started to load, it could not find the original 925X chipset and instead finds itself confronted with Biostar VIA P4M900/VT8237A chipsets which is an unknown, hence the BSOD.
