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...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
