Recently I bought a new motherboard so I installed it and I can turn my computer on and everything, but right now with the Windows 10 disc (and windows 7 disc) I have, my computer blue screens before I can do anything. This is how the cycle of it goes:
1. I turn on the computer
2. I enter in the BIOS and check settings in case if something is wrong
3. Windows loads up for a brief second (the windows logo and the dots that swirl around not the actual log in screen) and sometimes it loads with "Preparing system repair"
If there is a BIOS setting I need to tweak or I can't use a disc or something please tell me.
Also above anything, the free option of changing settings takes a higher priority than buying new parts. So far a little mistake in late december has cost me about $70 and a month without my proper computer. Please help. Thank you very much if you did help.

Unplug everything, then replug everything checking carefully to ensure that it's all connected securely and correctly (use the manual).

If that doesn't fix it, then your best bet is the experts in our Internal Hardware forums located here:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/ 

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

 Unless you replaced that motherboard with an identical one, you will have driver incompatibilites if you try using the same Windows installation.  That IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL_TO error is usually caused by driver problems.  Things I would try:

- Boot to Safe Mode if you can & check Device Manager for ! or ? next to entries.

- Boot from a repair disc or flash drive.

If you end up having to reinstall, you can boot a Linux disc and use it to save your data if you don't already have it backed up.

 If neither of the above helps, you can download the Windows 10 media creation tool from here:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 .  You can run that and tell it what you want, and it will download either the ISO or the image to put on a flash drive you can use to install Windows.  Remember that after the install, you'll need to reinstall the drivers that came with your motherboard.


 Good luck,

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

So I am using a windows 10 disc, and I have used a windows 7 disc too, and I have been using a USB with windows 10 on it too. Nothing works except one slight difference. If I don't do anything the windows logo and blue screen are in a smaller resolution than the monitor. When I try booting it from USB it seems to be the correct resolution and with the usb it is usually MEMORY_MANAGEMENT rather than the regular IQRL error.
