I put in a new motherboard it's an asus p4c800 and I tryed to put the same harddrive in but when windows boots there is only a blank black screen. When I tryed to reinstall windows it goes through the install setup, then when I get to the point where you choose to install windows, I press enter to keep going it starts to go and then the blue screen pops up with a stop message. 0x0000008e (0xc0000006, 0x808a9b72, 0xf9680a14, 0x00000000) I have tryed to change the ram, hard drive and several other things. Please help if possible, Thanks.

Possible graphics problem.

If this is a different motherboard than the previous one try a repair install.

This is generally what will happen if you switch the motherboard on any of the NT based systems. Unless the two boards have the same or very similar chipsets the change wont work. Even then you may need to reinstall chipset and other drivers.

Indeed. Your Only way to entirely resolve this problem is to backup your data, and do a clean installation of windows XP.

Hi Joey5443...

Are your RAM modules compatible with the new motherboard? That's what generally generates this error during setup...bad or incompatible RAM modules. If you have more than one module installed, try removing one of them and running the installation again.
