My Uncle recently bought a new mobo and processor to put into his computer.
We've put everything in, and the computer powers up. Then we get a screen that says, "American Megatrends"
"AMIBIOS (C) 2005"
It recognizes the hard drive and the optical drives, then at the bottom it says,
"CMOS Checksum Bad
CMOS Date/Time Not Set
Press F1 to Run Setup"
We checked the mobo manual, and it instructed us to clear the CMOS Jumper. We've done this several times, but no luck.
It then told us to run Setup (F1) and "Load Optimal De-faults", then save and exit. After doing this, it checks Nvram, and says "Ok."
Now a screen comes up saying, "We apologize for the inconvience, but Windows did not start properly" indicating that it may be due to hardware chanes.
You're given the option to load windows with the last knon good configuration, or in safe mode, or safemode with a command prompt. ALL choices give a BSOD.
It says a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
It then says, "Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any nely installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer."
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0XBACC3528, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)
I don't know what it could be. Is there a way I could load a command prompt to run CHKDSK? We know the hard drive isn't the problem, windows loads up when we put the old mobo/processor back in.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
