My PC died, so I decided up upgrade from an old Intel 1.8 Celeron to an AMD Athlon 64 3200+.
Anyway, My old ATA 40 GB hard drive is still working with Windows XP OS so I just attached a new motherboard, the new CPU, new memory and new power supply. Great, until I fired it up, problems. It loops the load up process from the black option screen all the way to a blue screen flashing and all over again, and again. I tell it to stop auto restart and this is what I see;

STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF77A0750, 0xF798F430, 0xF798F12C)

A look through Microsoft's support section revealed nothing directly detailing these codes. I do suspect a hardware issue, but I am not 100%. This motherboard/cpu supports Windows XP. Nvidia makes my GeForce motherboard and my GeForce Graphics card. What gives? I cannot pin point the problem.
chkdsk said there were errors. I told it to /f and it told me it was locked. I told it to scan on reboot...it did not. I
I cannot locate my Windows XP CD either...crap. Im in a world of hurt here, help!
Thanks Guys and Gals.

Need to run a Windows Repair. You can't just change the board and expect it to work. You need a Windows CD.
