Ok, long story short. I bought a whole new cpu system for my newphew. His birth day is next week. I purchased: AMD 3200+ Venice Socket 939, OCZ Platinum Rev2 1GB DDR400, DFI Lanparty N Ultra-D, Western Digital 160GB Sata2 8MB HD, Leadtek Px6600GT TDH. So i plugged everything in correctly because well.. it starts and the leds on the mobo all match what the manual dictates. So then I install Windowns XP Home Edition SP1 OEM. After it installs windows and reboots i get the dreaded BSOD.. "STOP: 0X0000007B (0XFC46640, 0XC0000034 and etc with the 0's) I've read the section on http://www.geekstogo...des-t43519.html. When I try to load my Sony IDE Harddrive in place of new WD sata2 drive i get the same error. At first i thought it was the OEM Windows XP Serivce Pack SP1 from my old Cpu was the culprit. But my old ide sony drive has Windows XP Sp2 on it already installed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS: I've read the other posts about this certain BSOD code. Im not a cpu expert so I wanted to post my system hardware just incase it makes a diffrence.

Hello and Welcome to Geeks To Go

From what I could find out this is a hard drive issure. You might what to run a few test on it. I am going to ask some one that knows more about hardware to have a look in and see what they say.

This stop code, when displayed on the initial restart, usually is associated with a corrupt MBR or bad Boot.ini file.

Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates.
