I got a new motherboard and processer and I try to boot it up and I get to a screen that says to choose boot in safe mode safe mode with command prompt ect. and any of them I choose it goes to a blue screen with some words on it but only stays for like 0.02 seconds then re-boots again I tried almost every thing I can think of. :)
the mother board is a foxconn socket LGA775 and the processer is a pentium D 3.09GHz with an 80gb hard drive

Hi Blacksmith*...

You've changed enough hardware that Windows is becoming confused when it tries to start. Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.

If you still have your product key, you can use a borrowed cd of the same version you have installed. If you no longer have your product key, you will likely have to purchase a new installation cd...which will come complete with a new key code.
