It sounds like a conflict between the mobo & processor to me, but I maybe wrong.

Are you using XP?

XP doesn't always "take" to a new motherboard, which is why you have to do an XP Repair immediately.

See:

on how to do it to save typing it all out...:-)

Then you can have a look at updating the Bios if it is necessary.
