My computer will boot up to the windows startup logo, and just when it should load my desktop, it flashes a blue screen, and re-boots into recovery mode.

I just built a new computer using the new Intel 1155 socket CPU. As you may or may not know, all 1155 socket motherboards were recalled due to issues with the SATA ports. Long story short, I got a refund for my H-series Biostar motherboard, and when the revised motherboards were made available, i bought a P-series Asus motherboard. All of the system hardware is the same, accept the motherboard.

The computer was running fine with the H-series Biostar motherboard, but now that i have swapped for the Asus, i seem to be running into problems. My first instinct is that the leftover H-series motherboard driver is messing with my new P-series build, but i can't get to the control panel to remove it. I have found a way to pull up windows explorer when i boot into recovery mode. Is it possible for me to remove my old motherboard drivers through windows explorer, or will i need to gain access to the control panel?

Computer Details:
CPU: Intel i5 LGA 1155
MOBO: Asus P8P67-LE
Memory: G Skill 2*2GB
Video Card: PNY GeForce 9800 GT
PSU: Tried 380W and 650W, made no difference

Did you do a clean install...when you replaced the motherboard?

I don't have any install discs. When my brother moved out, every disc went with him. In recovery mode, have tried loading backups, and installing every driver that came with the new motherboard. I have also tried booting from an Ubuntu install disc, which worked, but i would prefer to keep windows if i could.

Also, i have attempted to boot from my hard drive on another system. I am not getting the same error, but it still won't boot. I booted it as a secondary drive on my other pc, and did a health check, which turned out normal.

The all mighty clean install fixes all. It was my last resort, and it worked. Now to get all my programs back...
