New custom built PC getting blue screen

Hello everyone, I built my own PC, but I have not gotten the chance to use it due to a blue screen. This blue screen happens right after the OS loads. The error is 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xBA4C34260, 0xBAC3128). I am running XP and my parts list can be seen here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WolrQFUL0GQPa_rCSwf5woolDp9QhA1M_a2o5mHEBfE/edit?usp=sharing. I am using a HDD out of my old computer, since it has all my my files, programs, ect., and it is 80Gb with 40GB of space left.

Any help is greatly appreciated and I thank you for your time!

  1. You cannot just put a HDD with windows on it into a new computer. You HAVE to reinstall windows.

    XP doesn't take to new mobos/cpus well - If you were on Win7, chances would be extremely good, have done it dozens of times - Win7 picks up on the new hardware, loads default drivers, and generally starts up - have even gone from AMD to Intel hardaware - but XP seldom ever will be able to do it

    I would, but I can't find the disk. I guess I'm going to get windows 7 and try that. Thank you for the help!

    Thank you for the help! I'll be sure to get Windows 7 and try from there.
