  1. this morning i installed my motherboard into my old case
    the specs now are as listed:
    asrock 1333 full hd mobo
    2x1gb dual channel ram
    intel core 2 duo E6750 2.66ghz
    350 watt power supply
    160 gb seagate barracuda hdd
    sony dvd rw drive
    medion tv tuner card

    i installed the new board, ram and processor
    connecting everything in the correct place
    i pressed the power button and all powered up to life!
    the windows xp loading screen showed and then after that loaded to a black screen showing the mouse.
    the hard drive l.e.d. showed no usage at all at this moment in time.

    what am i doing wrong
    how can i get windows to load?

    Many thanks

    If you've installed a new motherboard, you need to reinstall or at the very least repair Windows XP. It will not boot otherwise.
