  1. i recently upgraded my MB because of an AGP failure. i kept all my other hardware, like my HD. when everything was installed i started windows, the logo and loading screen appears but then this stop error occurs: 0x0000007b (0xf78a663c, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) my HD runs fine as a secondary on other computers and no other SATA drive works with my motherboard. so im looking for a way to fix that without a floppy drive and without formatting my HD. im assuming i just need drivers but where can i get them? the asus website is no help

    MB: ASUS P4S800D-X
    HD: Seagate Barracuda ST3250823AS

    Well, for the SATA/RAID drivers click here for the SIS v1.05 RAID driver. Other motherboard drivers are also available if you need them.

    an AGP failure? What was the cause of that failure? It may affect your new setup!

    an old video card was being tampered with by dumb old people (parents :p ) and fried the AGP slot, i have a video card that works now tho.

    the ASUS website driver downloads are setup files that need the actual chipset to run, and i cant run anything on that MB

    if your hard drive is SATA, you may need to install the drivers.

    Also if you have a mixed system (IDE and SATA) windows sometimes gets fussy and defaults to IDE. I don't recommed mixing. USe one or the other.
