by mathewtowner / June 21, 2013 6:12 PM PDT

Hi, I just installed a new gigabite motherboard, DDR ram and duel core CPU.
Windows 7 will now not restart, and upon disabling the auto restart, I'm getting the following message:

***stop: 0x0000007B (0xfffff880009a98e8, 0xffffffffc0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

Please help asap!

Thank you

Re: Windows 7 boot issue

Time for a clean install of Windows 7 from the DVD, followed by the drivers for the new motherboard as a first step.
So find that DVD and you'll up and running in an hour.

One possible issue: if your DVD is OEM, it might refuse to install on a different motherboard. And if it installs it might refuse to be activated without you buying a new license with Microsofts activation support (the license isn't free, but the phone call is).

When you change a motherboard, Windows does that.

Nothing really new going on here. But I can imagine folk that are new may not know this nugget or area.
