I just put together my pc, i upgraded the mother board and ram, and it will not let me get passed this error when xp tries to start up.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Upgrading/changing motherboards is a pretty massive change for an operating system to deal with. At best you can do a repair installation, which will leave most of your files intact. You will still need to reinstall all of your software and tweak settings to get them back to normal.

At worst you'll need to do a full reinstall.

If you haven't already got a backup, do one. Repair and full installations can easily lead to losing all of your data. The easiest way to do a backup for you (because your machine isn't booting at present) is probably to use a Linux live CD (pick any one, really) to copy files and things you want to keep to an external drive.
