Each time I attempt to boot up this BSOD message appears:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your
computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly 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.

Technical informaiton:

*** STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78BE524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)"

The motherboard is new, the memory is new (2GB), and the drive works
perfectly in another similar PC. I tried booting up with the Windows CD and
going to "R", but the CD does not recognize the hard drive. A known good
motherboard and memory has been substituted with the same results.

I've consulted another tech I know, and we are both stumped.

Try to start in Recovery Console and run this command:

it.

I've tried everything microsoft suggested with no success. I removed the
hard drive and placed in a totally different machine as the boot drive with
no other drive connected. The XP OS reformated the drive and installed as
advertised. The drive then successfully booted up that machine and ran
perfectly. I then cleared the BIOS on the original machine twice with no
success. When I use the XP OS CD in the original machine the following is
the error message displays:

"Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computuer.

Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and porperly connected to your
computer, and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct. This
may involve running a manufacture-supplied diagnostic or setup program.

Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3."

I have downloaded updated SATA drivers and used F6 during Setup to install
them again with no success.

Could the CPU be bad?
