What is the BSOD error code?
Usually a repair would make sure that the new mobo will work with the computer.

Did you try booting into Safe Mode?
Tap F8 after the BIOS splash screen, but before the XP boot screen, and you will be presented with the Windows Advanced Startup Menu, choose Safe Mode. Also disable automatic restart on system failure.
