After my old Asus P5QL PRO mobo died on me, thankfully it was still under warranty and the very nice people at Ebuyer, gave me a £40 credit so with that i started looking into a cheap LGA775 board as a replacement and plumped for the P5g41t-m lx with 8GB (2x4gb) Corsair 1333mhz DDR3 Ballistix Sport Ram, until i can get the cash toghether for a new Z77 board and an i5 2500k .The board arrived Saturday and i fitted it in my case, posted fine went into the bios had a quick look round, not much to see so i exited to windows and as the "starting windows" logo came on screen it blue screened with the stop code of 0x0000007b.
After much searching ive found this to most likely be an issue with disk controller/chipset drivers, the chipset drivers for the new board not being present on my hdd so it cant read my hdd.
So as i have spare mobo a Dell/Foxcomm G33 775 board i hooked it up with my old e2140 and 2gb of ddr2 just to see if the hdd would boot into windows, and that loaded fine.
I was wondering if i re-fitted the foxcomm board and went into windows installed the chipset drivers for the P5g41t from asus's website, then swapped boards AGAIN!! lol, if that would solve my problem as i REALLY don't want to have to format my hdd and start form scratch.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
