My old motherboard Asus A8M2N-LA (as all HP a1712n models, also my computer) died. Now I installed an Asus M2N68-AM PLUS motherboard. The computer can get to the BIOS but when trying to load window after the first bar it presents briefly a blue screen (that don’t give a chance to read), and restart to the BIOS. Then I get the option that windows can fix it automatically, but it doesn’t nor restore point as well.

Right now I am empty handed and any help or idea is appreciate.

It might crash with error 0x0000007b because you switched from a GeForce 6150 LE chipset to a Geforce 7025/nForce 630a chipset and the drivers probably are different.

Yes it will be because you cant change something as integral as a motherboard without reinstalling the OS from scratch unless of course the new board is the same as the old board. It causes driver issues and may very well cause issues around Windows authentication.
