I have an asus A7N8X-E nforce2 motherboard and was running a 2600+ 333mhz fsb processor fine. I hooked up the 3000+ 400mhz fsb and before windows could boot i got this error:

Windows cannot start cause the following file is missing or corrupt:
system32/driver/ntfs.sys

Then the normal repair file with xp cd blah blah blah. I put in the cd boot it up while loading xp it always freezes on the exact same file time and time again. Kernel Debugger dll or something. Put the 2600+ back in and it boots right up fine.

My clock is at 200 and the multiplier 10.5. Is this where the should be? Do these require a lot more power to run? First thought it was temp related got a big heatsink now and still does it. Any info would be be great.

asus a7n8x-e
512mb pc3200
geforce 256mb 5600
80g seagate, 60g maxtor, 52x lite-on cd
450W power supply

it's not a temp problem. it's that you changed cpus. you need to reformat.

golden rule for me when replacing motherboard or cpu: reformat and reinstall windows.

Tried that already. Windows will not boot with cd or disk. When booting from the xp cd it freezes on one of the first files it loads everytime even after I have formatted. The only thing I have been able to run is KillDisk to format. I formatted once and then had to stick my old processor in just get windows setup to boot and install. With the 3000+ it starts the windows setup but freezes at the same point each time on one of the very first files. I know its not a temp thing cause I have a big heatsink now and my temps are fine. What would cause it to work for a short time and then freeze?

Anyone else have any other ideas? Do the 3000+ require more juice than the 2600+? Maybe something with my power supply. I would order a new one I just want to see what you guys think first.

Thanks
