New Homebuilt System Not Working

Just received my power supply today so I could finally put everything into place and see if my new homebuilt computer works.
It doesn't. The computer boots and loads okay. I get the ASRock set up screen but when I comes time to load Windows XP I get this blue screen error.

ASRock B75M
Palit nVidia GTX 295
8GB Corsair Vengeance Memory
80GB Maxtor Diamondmax 10
Antec HCG-900
Intel i5 3470

  1. Try running your system with one memory in the slot and see if it works then if it does then this will be a memory related issue, if you have just installed windows xp then it could be a corrupt install also you could try starting up in safe mode and see if that works.

    Try working through each component at a time, Take a component out and start the computer without it, repeat the process until it boots correctly. If it does then you have found your culprit.

    And the error message tells you what to do. It says check your hard drive. I expect bad sectors or a corrupt file system on it. I'm pretty sure it's not a memory problem.
