Please do the following:
1: Remove the old parts and leave the new parts only.
2: Make sure that the heatsink sits tightly and aquarely on the cpu. If you used an old heatsink I hope that thermal paste was applied on cleaned up surfaces between the cpu and the heatsink.
3: Clear the BIOS: disconnect the power cable from the back of the computer.
Open the side cover and carefully take out the cmos battery (looks like a silvery button).
Keep it out for about 20 minutes. Reinstall in the reverse order and reboot. You will probably
get a checksome error. If you do, enter BIOS by pressing del or F2 repeatedly when starting
the computer until BIOS tables show up. Set time and date, save the new values and let the
computer boot. There are computers in which other keys have to be used to enter BIOS.
You can find the correct key when looking at the screen right after pressing the start button.
Look for what key you have to press to enter setup.
4: If all the above don't help reformat the new hard disk and do a complete new installation of Windows and drivers. I don't see much point in trying to repair the old (practically new) windows installation.
