Computer troubles

  1. I've never had a problem with any of my computers till now. (I build custom computers) Ok well, i had two computers and i swapped the HDD (Seagate sata II 160gb) to the custom pc. It works fine as a slave, but i cannot boot from it without getting this error message. (blue screen of death message) My dilemma is, i want to take out the smaller 30 gig HDD and boot from just the 160, which i can't because it won't let me.

    0x00000007e (0xc0000005, 0xf6ca0756, 0xf79f7430, 0xf79f712c)

    Any help with this would be great, so far i have updated most of my drivers, ran the windows repair a few times, smoked a couple bowls with it (Thought the magical power of pot might help or something) unplugged memory sticks and stuff, and gosh darn... it still wont comply. I get this error as soon as it passes the windows xp logo with the loading bar. So is this a lost cause? (I'm sure it isn't) or not? ;[ I was thinking about flashing the bios, but i'm not sure what that does, or how to do it, and I was also going to update the bios, but i couldn't find the drivers. Thanks in advance yooh tech-studs <3

    Does the 120GB drive have an OS installed?If so, that could be a conflict because of the different components in the 2 machines.
    Works as slave, so go to Disk Management, delete partition, and reformat.Install as master and install OS on a fresh clean drive.

    Yup both has OS installed, but i didnt want to loose all my settings and stuff. Otherwise i would have done it first, but if thats what needs to be done, than i'll hop to it. Thanks for the help :grinthumb

    Save anything you want to keep to a removable external drive, CD-ROM or USB drive first.

    I know i know, i have a 16gig transcend flash drive just for times of need like this. though i usually use it like a mini music library. Shiit son, any house with a computer is a party house complete with a dj as long i bring this baby. lol ;]

    Well thanks man, i like your sig btw. Anyone have any last words of advice to throw my way that might save me from a terribly long reinstall? Followed by a terribly long search for programs, drivers, games, pr0n, ect...

    Transfer your programs to CD-ROM.
    Find a copy of WinDriversBack and save all drivers to a folder on the CD.
    Some games you can save and transfer saved games. Worth checking.

    Have you checked Device Manager?
    How about your network configuration?

    In essence, Windows XP - Black Edition is XP on DVD with plenty of other pirated software included... Software that covers every aspect of day to day computing and even some outside of it...it also comes with malware.

    Mr. Flap, it is difficult to take your computer problems seriously with practices such as this.

    And you openly state
    Maybe I'm a stick in the mud, but I'm a volunteer here, like every one else and don't care to be address this way.

    This is a poor transparent comment to try and make yourself sound like a grownup. Well guess what, i doesn't cut it.

    Yes. Go play with the other irresponsible kids and stop wasting our time!
