Windows 7: Bootup problems

Bootup problems

Hi everyone. So I just picked up a new motherboard (ASRock K10N78D) installed windows 7 x64 and it all worked fine. Now I was getting everything setup and rebooted and it gets stuck on the windows loading screen. So I tried reinstalling windows 7 x64 like a billion different ways and still no go. But now I get all the way to the "Setup is running Windows for the first time" screen then about 4 seconds into it, it reboots my computer completely then continues in an infinite loop. Like I said it worked good for about 1hr but after rebooting, nothing.

Ive tried
Shorting CMOS jumper.
Removing the CMOS battery.
flashing to every other bios available.
booting in safe mode (but errors saying windows first time setup needs to run out of safe mode)
Swapping around my 2x2GB modules to see if memory is dead.
I installed a new main IDE hard drive, I even tried changing the IDE cable.
I tried unplugging all the unneeded components.
I tried removing the disc when I boot into the part where it reboots.
I also have the fourth unlocked but tried disabling it, but no difference.

AMD Phenom II X3 710
Kingston hyperX DDR2
Cooler Master 550w

if your using a ide drive did you set the jumper to master? do you have the ide cable pluged in right? should
be motherboard / master / slave.

Yea the jumper is set to master, ive tried different cables. Before I had the double ide cable now im using a single just to verify its not a cable issue. Thanks for the reply

another thing you can look at is your temps.you said you replaced the motherboard maybe your heatsink is not set right on the cpu. you should be able to check the temps in your bios. also you have a 4pin power connector on your board make sure it didn't get unpluged
cause i think that will stop your system from booting..

Could be a video problem with your 46" monitor. Do you have a smaller monitor with a vga connection you can try for install ?

You know what im going to try something, when I first got the board in I already had Windows installed from the previous board (gigabyte). Well when I installed it I just wanted to see if itd boot and sure enough it did I wonder if I install windows with the old mobo then just swap em out if itd keep working or goof out.
