Replaced my motherboard, reinstalled Windows 7 Pro SP1, freezing happens

Q: Replaced my motherboard, reinstalled Windows 7 Pro SP1, freezing happens

I replaced my motherboard due to somewhere there was a defective or malfunction (You can review it here: [SOLVED] Integrated Video GPU stopped working).

So the motherboard I currently have now is ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z
CPU: AMD Pheonom II X6 1045T
Mobo socket: AM3+ but the CPU is AM3
GPU: ASUS Radeon R7 260X
Two Harddrive: The One with the OS in it: 500 GB WD Blue WDBH2D5000ENC-NRSN (set on SATA1 this drive loads up first)
The one with the old OS (Windows 7 Pro and OpenSUSE, and documents and stuff on it) 1 TB WD1002FAEX
Current OS: Windows 7 Pro (Have not done Windows Update, due to that fact that I have to call MS to get a new product key for it.
PSU: 500W (Corsair CX500
CPU Fan: Coolmaster Vortex Plus
Chasis: Corsair Graphite Series 600T

After rebuilding up my computer. Installed only Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bit, I installed Kaspersky Antivirus, the Drivers that came with mobo CD and drivers that came with the CD for my Graphics card and drivers for my wireless mouse. I downloaded Chrome and Dashlane and everything was fine until I logged on to Dashlane via Chrome, everything froze. So, I rebooted the OS logged back in. Everything was fine, until it frozed again. So I realized that my attempt to log onto my password manager - Dashlane, was freezing up my computer. So I rebooted again, I uninstalled Dashlane and it was doing good. Until I want to do another test, I downloaded Star Trek Online and when I double click it to open up and it load up and a minute later it froze I mean the OS system froze, I'm not getting light activity from HDD. I realized I have Chrome open, so I rebooted and got on Win7, I made sure I disable running Chrome in the back ground and made sure it Chrome browser is not running. So, I loaded up Star Trek Online, it loaded up and runs, I have to down load the patch, so as it been downloading, it was downloading the patch for 45 minutes and it got to 45% of download and the computer froze again. So, I'm out of ideas but two ideas I was wondering, may be my CPU cannot handle my motherboard because the motherboard is a overclocking board, and my CPU is not made for overclocking (OC). My Graphics card is a OC card, but my RAM is not made for OC. So I figured the freezing is caused by my CPU or RAM.

Your thoughts? If this is for Hardware section, MODs can move it there, if not, it can stay on this thread.

Thank you and I look forward for responses.


Preferred Solution: Replaced my motherboard, reinstalled Windows 7 Pro SP1, freezing happens

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Replaced my motherboard, reinstalled Windows 7 Pro SP1, freezing happens

If it were me, I'd start by NOT overclocking anything, if you have, and see how it runs. If the computer is simply locking up without any indication of what's causing it, I'd reinstall windows with only your 500GB drive plugged in. Load the necessary drivers to get online to run your windows updates. Before installing anything else, including your AV software, I'd try to run your windows updates. Of course without AV you'll want to make sure you're not browsing the web for anything other than updating. If you're still locking up, then you may need to check the drivers you've got installed. If you can boot to safe mode with networking, perhaps download the newest drivers for your hardware and see what happens.

I have an old U530, but with a recent SS upgrade it was running like new, until the orange battery light on the side started quickly flashing.  The moment the power plug is removed, the machine loses all power and is turned off.I have replaced the battery.I have replaced the motherboard.I have tested with other chargers to ensure that was not the source of the problem. The issue remains.  What else could cause this? Software/firmware?  Other smaller PCBs? Any help would be greatly appretiated.

A few weeks ago my notebook stopped powering on. I sent it into HP for repairs, and they replaced the motherboard. When I got it back, it did power on, but it crashes and I get a blue screen of death fairly regularly, every 5-30 minutes. The error messages vary, here's a selection of them:KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURESYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (dxgmms2.sys)CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTIONCRITICAL_PROCESS_DIEDSYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTIONIRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUALMEMORY_MANAGEMENTSPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTIONKMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLEDMy first thought was that it was a driver error, specifically a graphics driver error (I've received several notifications telling me the display driver has crashed but Windows recovered it), but neither rolling it back, nor updating it, nor uninstalling it and installing the version from HP's website fixed the issue. I did the same for virtually every other major driver, and did a full check to make sure every driver was completely up to date. I also used Memtest86 to check the integrity of the memory, and Seagate's tool to check the hard drive, both to no avail.Is there anything else I should try? Is this possibly a problem with the repair itself that may require me to send the laptop in again?

Had to get a new motherboard for my mom's HP Pavilion 110-023w tower because the pins on the socket LGA-1155 board were bent. Was trying to clean it up and apply new thermal grease on it after I had blown out the dust bunnies out early in the month last month. This board: ASRock H81TM-ITX R2.0 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gbs USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

replaces HP part number 717070-501. Now, I tried to get on the activation hotline and once again I get dialed into Bangalore or who-knows-where, and he keeps whining about entering the Product Key from a label that is nowhere to be found on the computer's case. I insisted that I never had a key, that Windows 8 was factory pre-installed without one, they never bothered to include a sticker or label on the computer, or any of the media or the manual, but he kept rambling on about where to look and, I almost started an argument because I already had the Installation ID screen up and everything and I told him, "Look, I came here to tell someone my Installation ID and all you're doing is b#%ch about some label that I can't find on this HP tower?" He kept on keeping on, telling me about all other nonsense I didn't want to hear, and finally I decided he wasn't going to help me activate Windows, so I hung up on him.

So yeah. I did put a new motherboard in the HP chassis, and it was almost a perfect fit except for that I had to cut a length of cable in order for the power connectors to reach fr... Read more

A:Replaced Motherboard, now Windows 10 won't reactivate

Problem is the original 8.1 key was preinstalled oem, and you cannot transfer windows 10 to a new device if original licence is oem, and a new mobo counts as a new pc (it is the brains after all). The windows 10 EULA is very clear on this.

If your windows 7 key is a retail key, you can reinstall 7 on new pc, get it activated using telephone activation if necessary, then upgrade to windows 10 (or clean install and use 7 key).

If 7 key is oem, then it will not work, and you need a new licence. You are required to remove 7 or upgrade to 10 from old mobo, if you intended to use old mobo as well (not an issue here as old mobo is dead).

I admit the quality of info being provided by MS support is poor, but the end result is still correct ie you need a new licence.

Hi everyone,
I'm hoping for help with my laptop, which has started freezing at seemingly random intervals.
I recently did a clean install of Vista because although it was working, it was rather slow and Firefox kept stopping responding every couple of minutes whenever I was browsing the internet.I've previously done a clean install of Vista on the same machine without problem so felt confident to do it again.
My laptop originally shipped with Windows XP and I got sent a Vista Upgrade disk as I'd bought it within a few months of Vista being rolled out.
Anyway, a week or so ago, I did the clean install of Vista and downloaded/installed all the other programs I use.But since then, my laptop has started completely freezing - seemingly randomly. Sometimes it runs fine for hours on end before freezing, but other times it doesn't last as long. When it freezes up, everything stops. The hard drive light goes out, the mouse pointer won't move using either the track pad or the USB mouse, the CAPS lock button on the keyboard doesn't turn the CAPS Lock light on, the Avast icon in the system tray stops mid-animation and basically I can't do anything apart from switch the machine off completely by holding in the power button until it powers down.
I've tried using CCleaner to get rid of junk and clean the registry, I've run Malwarebytes (which found nothing), I've used Defraggler and got it down to 1% defragmented, I've checked the hard drive using chkdisk and  found instructions to use... Read more

My mother's computer recently had the integrated graphics card died. I replaced the motherboard with the exact same model and part number and I'm now trying to reinstall Windows 7.

When I boot from the Windows 7 installation disc, it loads to the screen where I can select the language, and then the choice of either "install now" or "repair your computer." I first tried loading the repair option, as I need to clear the C drive and create a new petition. That just sat there loading for hours and never did anything. I then tried the "install now" option, and the "setup is starting" always just sits there loading, but never actually does anything. I have also tried hitting Shift+F10 to get to the command prompt and loading DISKPART to try partitioning he hard drive that way, but it just hangs and never loads or allows me to input any more commands.

I have tried changing everything in the BIOS, from completely disabling the floppy drive (which the computer doesn't have), disabling onboard LAN and audio, and switching between AHCI and IDE for the SATA type. I have also tried changing between PCI-E GPU and Onboard Graphics, since the computer only has an integrated GPU right now. Basically I have tried every combination I can think of.

What can I possibly do from here to resolve this problem?

A:Replaced motherboard, unable to install Windows or partition HDD

Why didn`t you just install a video card ?

Set the bios to defaults and try again.

There`s no reason diskpart shouldn`t work, last resort, make and use a Partition Wizard Boot CD to format and setup the drive.

Is there a secure boot option in the bios ? Is it disabled ?

Hi Please help. I have just replaced my motherboard on my computer to a asrock g41m-vs3. Using the existing hard drive as soon as the windows logo starts it will crash bluescreen for 2 secs.
Now the problem with that is by looking up on the net, I need to change the sata mode. But with this asrock motherboard I have no sata mode, Cant find it. Must be just been a cheap one. So I put that hard drive in another computer did the exact thing so I changed the sata mode From AHCI to IDE and it starts works perfect.

So there noway off getting it to work on the other computer without reinstalling everything. Problem is that I need all the programs to stay installed because I am a real estate and wont be able to get a new cd key till monday.

So I tried backing up on my other computer to an image. Then found another hard drive and went into recovery mode to install the image. I have got it on a USB external hard drive. So it finds it all I click the image and it straight away says system imaged restore failed. No disk that can be used for recovery the system disk can be found.

Starting to get very annoyed. Any suggestions would be great

I found that locking (windows + L) and login back in frees up the mouse again...but typically freezes shortly after pretty fustrating, especially when one of the main reasons I buy Lenovo is their trackpoint. I've seen people have similar issues but no resolutions in their threads.

So I just got done replacing the motherboard & power supply on my Dell Dimensions 4600 a few days ago. I replaced them because they had burned up and my computer would not even powerup (a new power supply did not fix the problem). Anways... I have new problems now...

So, it booted fine for a few days and worked great after i had replaced the MB and PS. Then today I get a couple "blue screens of death" that made me restart a few times. I also got a few windows errors when I tried to open My Computer. I didnt think they were that big of a deal because i had gotten these errors before with no following consequences. Now, after the 4th blue screen of death and 4th time restarting, it won't restart. It simply goes to a blank screen after the Dell bios splash screen appears.

I have 2 maxtor hard drives- 80 gig and 20 gig. I have not made any changes to my computer in the last few days. For RAM I have 3x128meg and 1x256meg. I already took out my harddrives and made sure they were connected correctly- both are set to cable select with the jumpers. I am real close to formating the HD and reinstalling windows....

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.
The problem is that I am being told I am outside the 3-month repair warranty. I think this stinks! It's a known issue and I would like someone at Dell to step up make my expensive computer work normally all of he time.
Yes, I have run every diagnostic known to man and the internet.

A couple weeks ago my motherboard suddenly stopped working overnight. (I tested all of my other components with another (similar) computer and everything else was working fine.) I just finally got around to replacing the motherboard with an identical one. However, when it boots up it prompts me to select from Safe Mode/Last Known.../Star Windows Normally/etc.. If I choose Start Windows normally, it just freezes and nothing happens. If I choose Last Known Good Configuration, the screen turns all black and nothing happens. And if I choose one of the Safe Mode options, a list of filenames (I think) fill up the screen and then nothing happens.

The computer I used to test my parts also uses the exact same kind of motherboard, and I had no problem using my hard drive with that. Any thoughts? And thank you very much in advance.

My old motherboard stopped working, so while it's getting repaired, I decided to swap it with another one (different model). The problem is, Windows 7 won't boot anymore. I get a blue screen of death and the system keeps rebooting. Now I know replacing a motherboard with an old install is not a good idea, but I really need the files and programs I have on my hard drive. I don't want to do a fresh install either because I'll be putting back my old board once it's repaired. I tried a "automatic repair", but with no success. Am I out of options? The old board is an ASUS M4A78-PLUS and the new one is an ASUS M2N68-AM.

Any suggestion?

I was chatting with a Lenovo technican and she says that the motherboard might need to be replaced because the charger port is integrated in the motherboard but that would be too expensive.Is there any otheer kind of way the charger port can be replaced or is that the only way?

A:Would my motherboard need to be replaced on my Len...

First, I must say that I have never taken one of that model apart.  I am just looking at the service manual.  It looks to me that the charging port is soldered to the motherboard, as you were told.  Sometimes, if you look at the port, you can figure out that it is similar to one on another model and if you can find a damaged motherboard with a good port, you can do an "organ transplant".  Very few shops do that kind of repair.  The shop would need to have a good rework station, the port and spend the time to disassemble and reassemble.  The repair might not be cheaper than the motherboard, but I cannot be sure without examining it.  Sorry.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. This last weekend I started it up as usual and when it was done booting up I noticed that it was running from the battery. Thinking that a/c cord was unplugged I reached around to check it out. However the a/c cord was plugged in. I did notice though that it was wobbly. I unplugged it and plugged it back in several times and it kept running off of the battery. So I called the Dell tech support and after telling them all of this they determined the motherboard was bad so they are sending the parts and a tech person to my house to fix it. I have two questions though.

1) Why does the whole motherboard need to be replaced?

2)Will I lose anything on my harddrive, or do I need to do anything while I have some battery left so that I don't lose anything?
Thanks for the help.

A:OS will not boot since motherboard replaced

If the old (defective) motherboard did not corrupt the hard drive, and most likely it did not, and the replacement board is identical I would suspect either an installation problem (wiring error) with the new board or a hardware problem with the new board.

Is the new/replacement board a complete board (with memory and CPU) or was there components from the old board used on the new one. That can be a sticky issue, trying to resolve where the problem is.

I just replaced my motherboard w/ a Asus A7V333 and when I turn on my PSU (Antec True Power 480W) the Green LED on the motherboard comes on indicating that there's power from the PSU.

But when I hit the case power button, nothing happens. No fans come on or hard drive activity. It's as if I didn't do anything.

It may be that I have the case power switch plugged into the motherboard incorrectly but it does clearly say "ATX Power Switch" where I plugged in the case power switch. I also plugged in the "reset SW" to the motherboard "Reset SW" header.

Is there a way to bypass the case power button and jump it from the motherboard to get it started?

[SOLVED] Windows 7 BSOD with various codes on fresh install

I sent the computer back to HP for repair. They replaced the CPU and motherboard and sent it back. All seemed to be going perfectly since yesterday, until two issues happened today.

First, I was attempting to plug in headphones to the rear panel but couldn't quite see the holes, at one point the computer just completely shut off while I was plugging the headphones in. It wouldn't start for a minute or so until I opened the case, pulled out the power and turned it back on.

After that, all seemed fine again.

Later tonight, the computer froze in Windows for about 15 seconds and then went to BSOD with PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and BCCODE 4e

I'm back on now and it seems to be running fine, but the problem was intermittent before as well.

The report is attached and the details of my computer are contained in the previous post.

  While replacing a keyboard on my Aspire laptop, i broke the clip that holds the keyboard ribbon in place.  A friend suggested that I replace the motherboard.  I did and it appears that I have all components back in place.  The laptop runs fine and is actually quieter and smoother.  However, my wifi will not enable.  I checked the black and white wire connections and those are in place as well.  I plugged in an ethernet cable to make sure I can get on the internet and that was successful.  Any other suggestions of why the wifi will not enable? Pat

Just had my replaced motherboard replaced, now I have no sound. Any ideas? What do I need to download? I have 2 cheap HK speakers to connect. Also, there is a red "X" in Device Manger next to "Network Adapters". Does this have anything to do with it and what is it? Thanks much. Here is my Belarc adviser profile:

A:Replaced Motherboard-No sound

Have you installed the driver?

Hello all. I have a custom rig that I put together a little over a year ago. I recently installed some case fans and fried my motherboard. I replaced it, but did not re-configure BIOS. It was running fine for a few hours, but in the middle of playing a game online everything shut down. The motherboard screen that shows when I first boot showed for a second and then it all turned off. Now I am unable to turn on my computer; no power is supplied. My set up is: an AMD Athlon 64x2 6000+, MSI K9A2 CF motherboard (old board was an MSI K9AG Neo2), 4GB Corsair ValueSelect memory, nVidia GeForce 8600GT, 500GB Samsung HDD and an Antec TruePowerTrio 430watt PSU.

So I have a few questions:
1) I suspect a bad PSU. How can I test this?
2) If the PSU is bad, what could have caused the problem? I've never had any problems with the PSU before.
3) Is there anything else I should have done to set up the motherboard?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me.

I'm wrestling with this issue for a week now, since I decide to format my hard drive and reinstall my Win 7 Ultimate X64.
I'm using my computer and out of nowhere it suddenly slows down drastically and finally freezes, nothing helps but hitting the reset button.
Interestingly it never happens during watching videos or playing video games, only when I browse or I try to return to Windows. I'm still looking for the pattern in the error.
I checked the event log, I saw a few error messages with the graphics drive, I have read that the latest version is unstable so I reverted to a previous version, which was said stable, but it didn't solve the issue. Nor did turning off hardware acceleration in Firefox (the issue didn't appear exclusively during browsing anyway).
Currently I'm stuck. The event log doesn't tell anything useful for me any more, so I'm turning to the experts here, maybe they can solve my issue.

Thanks in advance!

p.s.: I should add that my previous installation worked fine but it was several years old, slow to boot up etc. so I felt it's time to reinstall it. So hardware issues are most likely ruled out.

If there is no hardware issue .....

So hardware issues are most likely ruled out.

..... you should try another installation. May be this installation is not a perfect one. Follow Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.

My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

A:BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

Hi Zuriel.

I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....
The GPU itself
The display driver
The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
The hardware parts like GPU fans
Overclocking failure
And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to Techspot, but I have read many of the subjects for reference.

I installed a new motherboard (Intel P4M-865G-MAX ), and power supply.
Then, reinstalled operating system XP Home with no issues until I tried to test all the hardware. More specific to play a music CD with no sound. I have an integrated Realtex AC97 audio (6 Channel). Has XP Home Home.

I checked all the volume controls to make sure volume was high enough and not muted. Also, checked the DirectX with the dxdiag cmd, with no problems, 2 set of speakers, and reinstalled the audio driver . Then I went to Realtek and updated the AC' 97 audio driver...Tried 2 different CD's. I reinstalled the chipset drivers too.

I need help I don't know what is wrong..Is the audio chip bad it's a new motherboard!! Please help.

I am wondering if i need to reinstall the chipset drivers for a motherboard that I replaced with an identical board. Everything seems to work fine with boot up and such, but going into programs, the pc slows down and freezes for a bit and them goes back to normal for a short period of time before slowing down again. if anyone has any i deas, it would be great to hear them.
the original board died, and since its not my machine, i got many excuses to what may have happened. i looked over the CPU and RAM and didnt see anything out of the ordinary.

When I tried to reformat the with the factory disk the computer would restart for no reason. Some times the system would freeze. The next step i changed the boot order, making the DVD drive first, same results. Next step was starting in safe mode, then running the format CD in safe mode. This worked, no freezes, no mystery restarts until the first time the computer had to restart to complete the formatting. Upon restart I got the classic Hal.dll error.

Please re-install a copy of the above file.

Updating the BOOT Manager failed so I picked up another HDD. Now, the system still freezes trying to reformat unless I'm in safe mode, but the system no longer has the hal.dll problem.

Here is my problem, when the computer restarts to finish the install, it freezes. What stopped the computer from freezing during the first stages running in safe mode? Why would the system freeze in the first place? Can I make the system stay in safe mode through all the restarts involved with reformatting?

Thanks for your help.

Good Evening, I have a Dell Inspiron 15r 5520 intel core i5 6GB Memory originally with a built in Microsoft Windows 8.

Purchased in 2012
It has since been updated to Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. 
I upgraded to Windows 10 as soon as I found out Windows 10 was free for people who had Windows 8
Windows 10 was working fine until July and then that's when the Motherboard 'gave out'
I tested it and it said the Motherboard is fine it's just the HDD.
Well the Hard Drive and Motherboard overheated and both died.

I have replaced a Heat Sink AND Fan to attempt to save it (Yes, I used a rice size amount of Thermal Paste to reinstall)
So now I purchased a New 1TB (1000GB) 8MB Cache 5400RPM SATA 2.5" 9.5mm Notebook Hard Drive and that was fine.
I also purchased a replacement Motherboard for my Laptop, which came with no Software, leading me to purchase Microsoft Windows 10 Pro.
I have had trouble downloading the Windows 10 pro, as it would turn off during download and refuse to actually go on and give me the proper download for a while.
After 2 days of trying, I finally realized I had to remove the CD once it was installed, and Windows 10 Pro was installed on my computer. After a few downloads, Skype, Google Hangouts and Roblox(Online game) to be exact, the motherboard fried out.
I recently got a Motherboard on ebay from China and now I am trying a USA seller instead.

Is Windows 10 Pro frying my Laptop? I know I cannot download devices from Dell any l... Read more
