BSOD - Begginer Build

So I finished putting my first computer together last night. For the most part everything is going well. I created a UBS boot disk with windows 7. (Not I have not made it past the BIOS yet) Windows is loading files... gets past that...starting windows... BSOD.

The message reads

STOP: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000420, 0xfffff880012607a0, 0xfffff88009a8ce8, 0xfffff880009a8410)

ACPI.sys - address fffff880012607a0, base at fffff88001200000, date stamp 4cd7745a.

I'm very inexperienced with all of this and sure I may have missed something along the way, Please HELP ALMIGHTY ONES!

MOBO: Asus M5A88-v EVO
AMD Phenom ii black edition
Corsair CX600
G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - Memory - 4 GB : 2 x 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin - DDR3 - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800

  2. I guess maybe i need to update my BIOS first? I'm trying to work on that right now.
  3. Ok i updated bios using the flash utility provided by asus, now it is not even trying to load from the USB.
  4. Ok back at BSOD with same message as before, BIOS are updated via USB Flash 2. Need some help here if anyone can assist.

    Try pulling out one of the memory sticks and trying to install with just one stick.

    EDIT: if the above doesn't work try going to BIOS and change the hard drive type.
    -z
  6. I have tried both already, even a different flash drive. same problem.

    Have you tried installing a different OS like ubuntu just to rule out that the OS your using doesn't have any corrupt files?

    Did you also reset your BIOS to default? there is an option in there to reset the settings to default, also try that.

    -z
  8. Resolved, monitor was plugged into the video card instead of the MOBO.
  9. Glad your problem is solved.
    Please mark the thread [solved]

    Thank you
