What could be a motherboard configuration problem


I am having a problem with crashing when running certain programs (NHL 2003, Madden 2004, Planetside ( I have Everquest but havn't tested it)).

Problem History

Everything ran fine... Then i used my hard drive in another computer. I installed all the drivers for the other computer on my hard drive. After putting the hard drive back into my computer, I had this crashing problem even after reinstall the drivers for my computer.

I have done everything I can think of that I can do. So now I ask you, what could be causing this problem and how can it be fixed? I have heard of possibly my motherboard, video card, or power source could need replacing. Just seems funny that hardware from a computer that ran fine a day or so ago would fail without use during that time. Maybe it could just have happened to have wonderful timing like that, but I would rather try other methods before spend cash. I thank you for any help that you can give.

I had the same problem If you remove your hard drive and put it in another computer that is running different OS you are going to have that problem Also the motherboard configuration are going to be different and cause crashes.
