Swapped out my older AMD CPU & Biostar mobo for an Intel i5 3570kand ASRock Z77 1155 Pro4 motherboard.
BIOS works fine. When I hit the Windows 7 x64 splash screen it loads for only a sec, then freezes and jumps into a BSOD.
This is probably only the 4th computer I’ve built/upgraded. Any ideas?
One thing that was new to me was that the ASRock 1115 board had an 8-pin ATX12v1 insert. However, my PSU has a 4-pin.
Do I need to do a Windows reinstall/repair to match the CPU/mobo change? Never had to do that before…in fact, this is the first major upgrade I’ve done that didn’t load right up.
