A problem has been detected

Paul

I recently upgraded my motherboard to an ASUS P5KPL, Intel E6600 with a
GeForce 8600GT video card and new 250 Gb SATA drive. When attempting to
install Windows XP home I get the message "A problem has been detected and
windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer". This is
followed by some suggestions as to the source of the problem, then the
tecnical bit says:
STOP 0X0000007E ( 0XC0000005, 0Xf75FE0BF, 0XF789E20C, 0XF789DF0C)
pci.sys - Address F75FE0BF base at F75F7000, Datestamp 3b7d855c

Please help.

Paul:
First of all, just to ensure we understand the components you're working
with...

Do I understand that you've changed your motherboard along with a new SATA
HDD and a new video card? So if this is true - for all practical purposes
this is a *new* PC, right?

So that your 250 GB SATA HDD is a "virgin" disk with no data on it except
for what it may contain during your failed attempt of trying to install the
XP OS onto that drive, right? In other words, there wasn't a previously
installed XP OS on that HDD, right?

Have you tried multiple times to install the OS onto the drive? How far do
you get along before you get that error message? Have you ever been able to
get through the entire setup process or is the system aborted sometime
during setup?

With the *only* installed components being your power supply, motherboard,
processor & heatsink, RAM modules, and graphics card, keyboard & mouse, and
*nothing else* - no sound card, no HDD, no optical drive(s), no external
devices - nothing else but those basic components...

What happens?

Do you get a screen display with no error messages of any kind?

Assuming no problem at this stage, are you able to access the BIOS? Have you
reviewed those CMOS settings to ensure all looks well there - presumably all
default settings? Leaving the system powered on at that stage - no problems
after 1/2 hour or so?
