Hello everyone. I have buit my second computer and have had a lot of trouble with it funtioning properly. My first system i built a few years back worked fine so i thought i would build another. I had heard it might be posible to use my old hard drive as it was and be able to just build around it and have the sytem boot up and work properly. The following is the list of new parts used.

Abit Pto IP35
4mb Corsair DDR2 800 ram
Nvidea Ge Force 8800 gts
pc power and cooling 610 watts power supply

I put it sll together and it did boot up useing what is on old hard drive. I then installed new drivers etc.

The first problem i had was sometimes instead of going to the destop it would instead keep cycleing though the start up over and over. It would get so far get a blue screen and retry.
Sometimes however the system is stable as it is atm But sometimes it gets a blue screen and want s to recycle again

I t is also sensitve to temperature and will not boot uptil the ambient temperature gets above 70 degrees.
Below this it wil not boot.

I hope you can help me track down what is causeing all these problems.

Thank you in advance

It is always recommended that a minimum a repair install is done to Windows. I however, always recommend a fresh install. That is likely the cause of your blue screens but I can not tell you for sure without seeing what stop code it is.

Celsius or Fahrenheit?

Please post the stop code on the blue screen in your next post.
