Transplanting HDD into new machine

Hi there. i got a new pc recently. its an AMD cpu and all the hardware is completely different to my last setup where the hard drive came from. As expected windows didn't cope with the change and i was presented with a blue screen. Is there a way to work around this? Some way that windows can scan for the new hardware and go from there? thanks in advance

    thanks for trying guys. @ frenzy. the mainboard supports both sata and ide.
    @vikaspalia, the repair doesn't fix it. i still get the blue screen. i think the simplest solution is to just do a fresh install of windows

This fault can be caused by so many different things:
You should start by tracing back through the recent history of hardware, software, drivers or settings changes to the computer between now and the last time that the computer was working properly to eliminate as many items as possible from the long list of possibilities below so you can isolate the precise cause.

This desktop computer has involuntary shutdowns when started? A repair man said it's due to overheating. I read about a power supply switch set on 220v. Can you tell me more about this switch?


It has nothing to do with that switch, YOU MUST USE THE APPROPRITE VOLTAGE, EITHER 115V or 220V. Using the wrong value would completely fry your computer Components. Well especially if the voltage coming in is greater than that represented on the switch. This switch, switches between two different circuits within the Computer Power supply or PSU. One for 115V and another for 220V.

Your PC is overheating, it is shutting down to protect itself from permanently damaging itself. Ensure that your computer components are free of dust. pay special attention to the CPU cooler and Graphics Card cooler. Use a paint brush and Vacuum cleaner. If you are unable to do it then hand it over to a pro, as you have to be aware of ESD, Electro Static Discharge.

It is true that your computer is working properly without any trouble.Three continuous beeps means that your keyboard component is not ready to input the data.That's why it is calling you as beeps.You might have to check your keyboard that it is attached with the CPU properly or not.

Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Hi there

I think it may be a graphics problem. May be the XP drivers are not compatible with your machine graphics card.
You could try this to solve it ...

From the web, possibly on another PC that's got the internet, download the graphics driver for your machine and save it to a USB disk.

Once the set up is complete, try booting into safe mode (press F8 on boot, then select boot into Safe Mode)

Now try running the driver from the USB disk (or copy it to C: drive first then run it).

Have you installed RAM? If not the machine will not boot. You may also need to enter the BIOS setup to set the CPU and DRAM voltages and multiplyers etc. Follow the instructions in the manual for setting up the CPU info in the BIOS. Are you sure your PSU has enough guts to run the setup? Many times have i seen setups fail because a cheap power supply has been overstretched.

Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
