  1. computer powers up fine but it won't fully bootup. i get a message has it's telling me that my system stop operating due to a hardware or system change. then it's asking me to choose from XP professional or Microsoft window recovery console. I try both of these put nothing worked. tried safe mode nothing happen is well. I installed new motherboard, cpu, memory but kept the hard drive. I'm confused as to why it's not booting.

    Your title implies an XP/2000 dual boot arrangment. Is this the case?
