blue screen on startup

by bathtubbuddy / July 12, 2013 8:53 AM PDT

ok so heres my problem:

after finishing my homework i turned off my laptop. A while later,when i turned it back on, i got the blue screen of death when Windows XP was on the logo loading screen. i tried going on safe mode and couldn't enter through there at all either.

I thought to my self "darn it, the start-up must have gotten corrupt.". So i then tried inserting the windows XP installation cd to execute the boot repair. nothing....

so i didn't want to make my life complicated. i took out the hard drive, connected it to my desktop, backed up my files and then formatted the drive. i then re-installed windows XP. While it was still hooked up to my desktop, i tried using the newly installed OS, worked like a charm, from start-up to shutdown.

Once i put the HD back into my laptop, i got the blue screen of death on the same spot; on the windows xp loading screen...

i tried changing the compatibility settings in the BIOS but there are hardly any settings to configure there...

Can anybody help me out here please? i really don't know how to fix this.

It is a Compaq Mini CQ10-400
Intel atom processor

XP when installed on one machine does not work like a spare tire on the next PC. Put the HDD in the netbook, format and install XP while the HDD is in it's -> home and target PC <-

Interesting, i thought the drivers for the new host pc would just install themselves on boot. Sorry ok, Ill get to it.

By the way, i dont know if this helps but the stop error is 0x0000007b then it gives me parameters but the screen goes black too fast i cant see them.

Has not seen this as a priority. It's well discussed that moving the Windows OS from machine to machine does fail so I don't want to repeat that again as you can find prior discussions.

The fix is to install when the HDD is in it's own machine.
