My computer, she's dead!
 
I just finnished rebuilding my computer from the ground up with a new E8400 in it. The processoer and mouse (MS Laser Mouse 6000) are the only new bits.

The specs are the top system in my signature, It all worked great 4 days ago but since the new CPU, nada.

I cleared the CMOS with a jumper before putting the new chip in and then loaded the optimized BIOS defaults (also tried fail safe defaults). From there I went through and disabled all the power saving features, set the correct RAM voltage, set the PCI-E to 100MHz, but I have not attempted any overclocking at all.

Now it gets to the point where I get to chose my operating system (Vista64 or XP), I hit enter for Vista (or XP) and it just cycles. Shuts down, reloads and gives me my choice of operating system again. I see a brief flash of blue on the screen before it shuts down but I can't tell if it's the Windows splash screen or a BSOD, it's too fast.

I've tried safe mode and it stops loading fairly quickly, the last file I see loaded before it restarts again is crcdisk.sys.

Now I have seen the BSOD a few times. It says I am having a page_fault_in_a_nonpaged_area (greek to me). And gives me this code;
*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFF880000293B2, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF80009AB7783, 0x0000000000000000)

I tried Google with no luck

Oh yeah, the BSOD suggested I insert my OS CD and try to repair but it shows the bar loading files and as soon as its done loading them it just blue screens.

I can disassemble both computers to try my old proc in it but I was hoping someone might have an idea what's up before doing that. I've been awake a loooong time and will disassemble tomorrow if needed.

Any suggestions?

Did you change motherboards since the install?

And what was your old processor?
And what motherboard?

Did you try it with only one stick of memory?

FreqE1 October 12, 2008 03:46 PM

It is the same mother board and no I have not tries one stick. I'll do that now.

No luck with one stick, I'm trying the other.

FreqE1 October 12, 2008 03:57 PM

It didn't work with either stick in any slot.

I have a set of Ballistix here somewhere that worked in this board before so I'm going to try and hunt them down. I've just moved here so this could be quite the hunt.

I hope my beloved Mushies aren't mush.

Ok, just to be sure here.... you did reset c-mos after you put the new chip in right????

FreqE1 October 12, 2008 04:05 PM

Yes, and it isn't working with my Ballistix either.

sswilson October 12, 2008 04:07 PM

I'd try running either a live linux distro, or UBCD. It might be just the OS install for some reason.

FreqE1 October 12, 2008 04:08 PM

Good thinking. I have Ubuntu here on disc. i'll give it a go.

You're not running a raid setup are you?
