I got BSOD while attempting to uninstall a program in Win XP, so I tried to reinstall the OS (because the guy who gave me the pc wants a clean-up) but a
STOP 0x0000007F (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) occurs.
I tried then to boot Kubuntu 9.04 live cd, and it booted fine, but when I tried an installation it failed too: just crashing...
I tried to change the RAM and the hard drives to no avail.
I'm thinking that it's an hardware failure, but can't track it down: what could it be? Video card? Motherboard?
EDIT: I ran 7 successful memtest - not even an error. I have to look at the harddisk ribbons and the motherboard.
EDIT No.2: I tried another harddrive, switching to sata connectors to no avail: the sata harddisk it isn't even recognized...Can it be the video card, or it will be the Motherboard?
