A friend gave me a pc to look at.It didn't boot up at all at first,I ventured into the tower and reseated the graphics card.The machine then booted up fine for a few days then on boot up one day I got a Blue Screen Of Death.Rebooted & the following happened. Auto detecting Pri master-not detected Auto detecting Pri slave-not detected Auto detecting Sec master-not detected Auto detecting Sec slave-not detected then proceeds to searching for boot record from floppy..not found searching for boot record from SCSI..not found Drive not ready,insert boot diskette in A:
I unplugged the IDE cables on the mobo and reseated them & booted up fine up to the login screen then Blue screen again.
In BIOS I have tried detecting the drives in there-not detected. I have changed PSU & RAM same problem.
The blue screen says Kernal_Data_Inpage_error amongst other things(win32k.sys is mentioned too)and beginning dump of physical memory. I have done a search on the internet for Stop 0x0000007A and it says hardware failure
I'm thinking it's a faulty mobo do you agree or have you another solotion?
