Hi! I tried to fit all info I could in the topic lol

I am using my iPod touch so I can not link you to my old thread.. We have a built computer that started having bsod issues.. I was working with someone on here who said to check the ram. We do not have an additional pc to make the cd they recommended. So, we decided to just update everything & this is where we are at.

It is a windows xp, custom built (aka pc repair student built it who happens to be my husband lol) it worked great for a year or so. Lately we get a bsod anytime we would click on too many links at 1 time or opened up something graphics heavy..

We changed the motherboard out as well as the ram & the graphics cards. When we turn the pc on, it loads up to the windows logo & then bsod and restarts. When we load it into safe mode it gives me an error that says something about windows set up can not run in safe mode, then it restarts again..

I did run a chkdisk /r twice, as the first time it said it found one or more errors.

This is the list if things we installed.. Please let me know what else you need to know. Tyia

Asus p5n-t deluxe Motherboard (new)
2 Ocz ram sticks 2 gigs each (these were from pc originally)
2 corsair ram sticks 2 gigs each (new)
2 evga 9500 gt graphics cards (new)
Western digital 500 gig 7200 rpm hdd (original not changed)
Intel core 2 quad 6700 processor (original not changed)

My husband just reminded me.. The first time we booted it up it DID load up to windows completely. We got a pop up to update Ethernet drivers, we said yes to the update. After it downloaded the Ethernet drivers it restarted & that was when it bsod on boot.

Thank you for your help in advance!

After swapping out the motherboard, did you reinstall Windows? Though the PC started somewhat normally once, that doesn't mean much. Replacing the motherboard often requires a reinstall of Windows due to various drivers and configuration settings that are specific to motherboards. Replacing the motherboard, especially if it isn't the same model as before, could drastically alter those drivers and settings.

I did try to do a repair windows.. We were going to backup our hard drive in safe mode & then just reformat the hard drive & reinstall windows. But of course can not get safe mode to work now. Would reinstalling windows wipe out the hard drive?

Reinstalling windows will wipe all data on the hard drive.

I would clone the existing drive to the external using a program like Acronis. Then you can do a clean install and transfer whatever files you need from the old drive image back to the fresh install.

Ok. If we take everything new off & put the old stuff back, would it work long enough to back up (or clone) the hdd? Right now I have no pc to download that program..

An alternative would be to get another hard drive, remove the old one, install the new one along with Windows, then plug the old drive back in to salvage data either directly or through a dock/enclosure. Some versions of Linux may allow you to access the old drive and copy stuff off to a new one using a free Live CD.

Ok we have the new hard drive in. But we are still getting the bsod. We can load in safe mode & we got it online for a little bit before the first bsod. Any suggestions? The only ? On the device manager is for my printer because we have not installed it yet. When we view the hidden files nothing changes (as far as errors)

I will post our event log screen shot in one second. Thank you for your help!

Just to clarify...you are getting a BSOD after a clean install of windows on the new drive?
