Bad Problem! Asus P5N-D WONT BOOT! - New Mobo, GPU, PSU & Case

Hello,
I recently decided to upgrade my old computer by taking out the Hard Drive and basically making a whole new rig with the same CPU I had in my old computer.

I used a 750Watt power supply, Asus P5N-D Motherboard, Asus GTX 650 GPU, A 80Gb Seagate HardDrive (from my old computer), Cooler Master Elite Case, 4x1GB DDR2 Ram & Intel Core 2Duo Processor (from old computer)

I put it all together, fans came on, Blue LED's lit, 1 beep and I would tell it to boot up windows normally and it would load, show the little start animation, freeze a BSOD would show and turn off.

I've spent about 2 days making backups on other computers, trying to reinstall Windows 7 64bit, making repair CD's, I've searched hundreds of forums etc. But I thought the best Idea would be to ask someone about my exact problem. It won't boot and I havn't reinstalled Windows because It won't let me. I don't know much about how to update the BIOS and drivers and stuff like that. (If someone could give me a step by step, it would help)

The basic problem I think is that when I try to install windows from repair CD's and backups I've made on an external HDD it prompts me to install drivers that I don't know about or what drivers for what... (confused). Sorry, I'm not much of an expert but I just want my new computer to boot into windows and I don't have much money to spend on anything else.

The problems are with this Motherboard in my opinion. Do I need to install drivers? If so, how, because I don't know how to do it when in startup repair.

Thanks for your time!

  1. From what I see, you do take out the HDD from PC #1 and put this HDD into the other PC #2 that has the p5n-D MB, right?
    If yes, does the PC #1 and PC #2 have same chipset? If no, then you are better to reinstall the win7 because they have the different driver, that why it prompts you to install drivers during the boot up.

    Also if they are the intel system, you can try to download the drivers from ASUS to the USB drive, when the pc asks you install the driver then you insert the USB and find those driver from the USB and install it.

    Ok, thanks very much! So I will need to completely reinstall windows? I've been trying to get it to work by doing startup repair and system image restores, I assume these won't work as they don't contain the correct drivers for my new motherboard. I've also read that system image restores are buggy or bad and don't work very well. So just to make this clear, is my best bet just re-installing Windows completely using a Win7 install CD?
  3. The system image restores only work well for the same MB when you change the HDD or sometimes files get corrupted or accidentally deleted.
    Yes, just reinstall the win7 again using the OS disk.
