  1. Hi there. my friend's computer was replaced by other parts but was still giving us the same problems....

    asus p4p800 SE (new part)
    pentium 4 hyper threading 2.4ghz (old Part)
    480watt psu thermal take silentpower (new part)
    gigabyte 6600gt (new part)
    2x 512mb Corsair (new part
    2 sata hard drives ( western digital & hitachi)( western digital is new)
    diamond DT688 5.1 sound card ( old Part)

    and it gives us this error codes in windows after the computer restarts

    the computer restarts back when he had his old parts...... this month, we replaced the motherboard with an asus p4p800, bought a westernd digital sata drive, bought a 6600gt and upgraded the power supply and it still restarts..

    can this be windows not liking the harddrives or is this a CPU problem? the cpu and the cd roms are the only ones that werent replaced in this system. could it be the CPU?


    here is the error since i coudlnt post the pic up.
    BCCode: 1000008e
    BCP1: 80000004
    BCP2: 804FA217

    BCP4: 00000000
    OSVer: 5_1_2600

    When you replace the motherboard, you need to re-install Windows, then install the drivers that came on a CD with the motherboard.
    Your 'old' windows still looks for the 'old' hardware and therefore can NOT function with this NEW hardware.
    Backup your personal files, and start from scratch.
    You probably will need to re-activate XP.

    we did a fresh install of OS.... 4 times already and still giving us problems. sorry for not clarifying it to you. im thinking its a hardware problem or a driver problem for OS and the motherboard/sata
