Are you sure you have matched ram and the right ram for that motherboard, might try booting with just one stick of ram installed. Next are you sure all the spacers went in while installing the motherboard, are the ram and motherboard compatible.

Also did you do a clean install of the os, with all the right drivers, chipset, video, sound, misc.

You probably need an app. to do it for you.

The only one that is standalone ( i.e. not tied to a proprietary imaging format ) is by Paragon.

I have used it several times. It works beautifully

thanks, but i had to do fresh install. then was able to run driver disc that came with board. all other stuff is still in windows old. file. i do have a question though. since i had to do fresh install. is there any way for me to import my old bookmarks from firefox into the new one? it is gonna take me forever to try and remember all of that stuff. there has to be a file somewhere that has all of that info since windows saved it into file. right?
