My old computer (the one I'm writing on now) is an upgraded Dell dimension xps t500.
Now I've bought a Asus a7n8x motherboard, amd 2100+, 256Mb 400MHz ram and a new tower with a new powersupply.
When I move my grapic card (elsa gladiac 920) and harddrive from this computer to the new one it crashes EVERY time it tries to boot winXP.
When trying to boot in safe mode I can se it's always at the "agp440.sys"-file. I've done quite a lot of reading about this around the internet and it might not even be this file that's causing the problem - some argue that it's just the last thing being written to the screen, that the problem is actually after that file... well nobody has come up with a satisfying solution so I'm asking you guys...
Your moving the harddrive that has xp installed for the dell computer over to the new computer, right?
Thats the problem. XP is trying to load drivers for chipsets and components that arent on the new M/B. Did the dell have onboard video at all? Your best bet would be to just get a new harddrive for the new computer and do a clean install or wipe the current drive and do a clean install.
Personnaly I would just get a new harddrive and graphics card for the new computer and use the old one for whatever.
