    if you can boot into safe mode, try and install the nforce2 drives that came with the mainbord. also you will have to uninstall the old mainbord drivers.

    hope that helps

    Silly question maybe, but have you reinstalled XP from scratch when you switched mobo's or did you just swap the boards. Precautions would have been needed if the latter (driver uninstallation among others)

    Edit: Here I posted a link to another forum explaining how to switch mobo's without needing a reinstall...
