Blue Screen with new CPU

Specs: Windows 7
I just got a new cpu.. Core 2 Quad Processor Q8200 (bought brand new).

But keep getting a blue screen before windows loads.The main blue screen error is 'Clfs.sys'.

If i use my old processor it works fine.

Here are my specs..

Did you try booting in Safe mode?
If so, did you still get the same blue screen error and message?

What exact STOP error do you get ?

Is it STOP: 0x0000C1F5 ??

Answer the questions in Response 1.

"The main blue screen error is 'Clfs.sys'."

No it isn't - that's the the named file, which may or may not be the problem file - sometimes Windows can't tell you directly what the problem file is.

The STOP error is the error.
.....

Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 1.86GHz

It's listed:
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ABIT/...

That says the mboard must have bios version 16 or later to support it properly - does it?

By the way, there appears to be all sorts of info about easily overclocking your E6300 cpu on the web.

"That says the mboard must have bios version 16 or later to support it properly - does it?" Yes it's 1.8.

I had my current cpu at 2.4, but it reset with when i reset the cmos. I'm not going to buy a new cpu just it leave it in it's box.

You said that the Bios had been flashed. Is the blue screen error appearing after the flash and change of processors. If yes then you would probably need to reinstall Windows.

It is a common problem. If there are changes in the BIOS and hardware windows do not load.

The Clfs.sys reference is useless without you stating the STOP error you got along with that, because most of the "hits" on the web are about that STOP error I quoted for Vista.

If you don't get the error in Safe mode, the error is probably caused by a file that is not loaded in Safe mode that prevents Clfs.sys from working properly in normal mode.

"Yes it's 1.8."
"...I had my current cpu at 2.4..."

Where did you get those figures from ?

The latest bios version is:

" BIOS: m624b16.zip

Bios Issue Date:2007/12/17
Mirror Site: ASIA Europe US
BIOS ID:16

1. Update CPU micro code to support 45nmCPU "

etc.

If that what you used ?

"....when i reset the cmos "

Did you do this ? :

" 8. CLEAR CMOS DATA

Switch off the power supply unit or pull off the power cord. There is a CCMOS jumper near the battery . Change the jumper position from default 1-2 to 2-3 for one minute to discharge the CMOS data, and then put it back to default 1-2. Switch on the power supply unit or pull in the power cord. Press the power-on button to boot up system. If it works, hit " Del " key to enter the BIOS setup page to do correct settings.
"

You often must run a Repair installation of Windows, or install Windows from scratch but that is usually not necessary, when you install a hard drive that already has had Windows installed on it when the hard drive was connected to a different mboard, but I've never heard of having to do that when the cpu or the bios version has been changed.
