Windows 7: Just Installed New Parts and now windows wont start!

Just Installed New Parts and now windows wont start!

I just ordered some new parts from newegg to upgrade my computer as it was starting to get out of date, I ordered A new mobo, 4gigs of RAM and a AMD, after installing everything and plugging all back in I thought it was going to work fine when I saw windows loading & etc. Soon after, the windows load screen just stops and it fails to load. What could be the issue?

Nothing was DoA, and I made sure all the new parts were compatible, Windows has tried to do something to correct the problem, but even it doesn't know what the issue is.

I didnt touch the hard drive or any other drives either when installing aside from unplugging and re plugging into the new motherboard.

Any ideas?

You can't really change out a motherboard on windows. It /sometimes/ works but sometimes not. You just completely changed every piece of hardware out from under every installed driver. ESPECIALLY if you went from Intel to AMD.

You should be able to boot off the Windows disk and do a repair install though, that'll redetect all the hardware properly and reinstall all the drivers...
