So I ordered a new mobo (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...), Core I5 750 and ddr3 Ram to replace my old Gigabyte P31 mobo and Core 2 Duo 7200. Everytime Windows tries to boot it bluescreens then immediately reboots before I can even read the error message. On reboot I'm told this can be caused by new hardware. Is there anything I can do to make WIndows recognize the new hardware? Im growing very very tired of having to transfer out all of the new stuff and put my old stuff back in every issue (first mobo was dead). Thanks for any help.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Try to boot with only one stick of RAM and after with the other one. Usually the BSoD means bad RAM or drivers.

If you are using a completely new motherboard than the one you had previously when the OS was installed you will need to backup your data and reinstall the operating system.

As devonh said you need to reinstall Windows. Boot with the dvd and select custom instalation and do a clean install.
You will need to reinstall all your programs.

Bit the bullet and did a fresh install.
