Computer won't boot properly

  1. I just upgraded my mother board and processor to a gigabyte z68x-UD3H-b3 mobo and a intel i5 processor. After swapping out the components I turned on the computer, and it started up fine but is unable to boot properly, and the windows system repair is unable to find the source of the problem.

    Does anyone have a suggestion of what i may have done wrong. Could this be cause by hooking up the hard drive incorrectly or something like that. This is the first time I have installed a motherboard myself so i wouldn't be surprised if i hooked up something incorrectly, I just don't know what would cause this sort of issue.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Did you install Windows fresh after doing a format?
