Recently upgraded my mother board, CPU, and graphics card. Mother board is a GA-78LMT-USB3 Socket AM3+ mATX 760G AMD. Processor is a AMD FX-6300 SIX CORE 3.5GHZ 14MB 95W AM3+CPU and card is a EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SIGNATURE2 LE 2GB GDDR5 PCIe. upgraded the power supply as well. i installed all the stuff and i got to boot up my PC and itll load the Gigabyte screen. then goes thru that and then goes to a 'windows error recovery' screen. i tried to start windows normally and also tried the repair with neither working. im at a loss and havent been able to find a solution. anyone have any idea? i dont have a way to check the processor since its AM3+. All parts are new. any help would be appreciated

You might have to update the bios. Your processor is supported after F3 bios.

You may need to perform a fresh install of your Windows Operating system.

Depending on what you CPU and motherboard you are using before you upgraded, the registry files and values may be too different.

A bunch of registry settings are created and written when you first install Windows, using the unique ID's and such found on your coputer components.

Example....say a Intel i5-4670K has a ID number of 1503, and a FX-6300 has an ID number of 3601. That gets written into the registry files.

Typically, a Graphics Card or CPU swap (given that you are using the same motherboard), new RAM, Power Supply, etc is perfectly fine. Once you put in a new Hard Drive (of the operating system, duh) or a motherboard, you will need to perform a fresh install of Windows.


FX-8350 @ 4.8GHz // ASUS Crosshair V Formula 990FX // Sapphire Vapor-X HD 7970 + Dual-X HD 7970 // Thermaltake Frio w/ push-pull (using Antec Formula 7 Nano-Diamond + Cooler Master JetFlo fans) // 8GB (2 X 4GB) G.Skill RipJawsX 2133MHz  // Corsair TX850 850W // Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD (OS) // Kingston V200+ 120GB SSD // WD Caviar Black 1TB // Windows 7 Ult x64

The problem his your chipset my friend. 760G chipset doesn't recognize that cpu unless you already have a old cpu and you update bios than change the cpu for your new fx 6300. You will need a 9xx series chipset 970-990-990fx chipset to be able to use that cpu. The only way you can make that work is to get another motherboard or use a older cpu phenom , athlon or fx series but x1xx ones like 4100-6100-8100 not the x3xx and then update bios with old cpu than put new cpu in with latest bios.
