Computer will only boot in safe mode

  1. so i just installed a new mobo (biostar TA790GXB A2+) and cpu (amd phenom2 x4 940) this morning, and once i had everything hooked up and booted for the first time it loaded up through the windows logo screen but as soon as it should have loaded the OS it simply rebooted itself. The second boot attempt allowed me to boot successfully into safe mode with networking and it works fine in safe mode. when i check the event viewer in admin tools i have an error id 7206.
    The initial event said the following :
    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

    after checking manufacturer's websites for any updates or missing drivers and installing them i now get the following 7206 upon a failed boot sequence"
    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

    i have run the setup disk that came with the mobo to no avail and i have the program to update the bios however it gives an error that it cannot run within safe mode.
    im kind of at a loss as to where to go from here so any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

    And you cannot run scans because it will not boot...
    Have you tried running scans on it as a slave from another known good computer.

    Would running a repair using the windows XP cd assist with this at all?

    "... because the majority of computer problems are related to the registry..."

    What a ridiculous supposition... simply not true.
